Accra, Nov. 1, GNA – A book on ‘Between Her Womb and Your Tomb’ was launched in Accra with a call on all to make important life choices.
The 275-page book has 12 chapters including the five secrets of a great life, life and power of the environment, experiences, values, faith, knowledge and how I slipped through the fingers of death.
Mr Emmanuel Cisco, the Author of the book who spent portion of his youthful years as refugee in Buduburam in the Central Region said, he spent his childhood life running away from bombs and bullets in Liberia and found peace in Ghana.
Mr Cisco noted that, he was motivated to write the book to be a promoter of peace, having been a product of war, make his mother proud of her pains and to be a blessing and not a burden to the generations.
‘I was inspired to write the book by what I had gone through in life and that I believed in the 80/20 principle of getting more results with less efforts,’ he added.
He said he won the Albert Einstein’s German Academic Refugee Initiative scholarship and graduated from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration as the best student in Bachelor of Science in Economics in 2013.
Mr Cisco noted that the book, which talks about the opportunity of life and how to make life worth celebrating, would provoke all and sundry to improve on their personal and professional life for success.
‘The book has incredible secrets and inspirations to help an individual grow as a seed in any environment, help master your experiences, acquire relevant knowledge for success, make better choices and transform your ideas into tangible results through actions.’
He said there are many young people who would not realise their true potential unless someone stands up to encourage them, not only by words but by excellent examples and has dedicated his life to being that example by pursuing his mission of Helping Other People Excel (HOPE) Campaign.
Mr Cisco is the Managing Director of Efforts Group Ghana Limited, a Social Entrepreneur and a Co-Founder and Executive Director of Youth Empowerment for Progress, a human resource development and capacity building organisation.
Mrs Ishmael Baafi Boateng, Public Relations Director for the HOPE Campaign said the campaign has 30 young team comprising Ghanaians, Liberians and Ivoirians poised to help in youth development across the African continent.
He said the campaign is to have inspired and empowered at least 10,000 young peace activists across the country by December 31, 2016.
Mr Boateng said in December the organisation has identified accredited orphanage homes to donate to as well as visit the prison yards to interact with the inmates and give them message of hope.
He appealed to the political parties to preach peace in their utterances as the country approaches election in 2016, adding that peaceful environment is necessary for human safety and development.
He urged the public to buy the book to better their lives and support the HOPE campaign.
