MICS once caught the eye of United Nations
In 2017, a student of MICS earned the “Award of Excellence” at the United Nations SDGs Student Photo Competition in Tokyo, Japan, for his photograph “Struggle of Childhood.”
The 17 year-old Master Mathew Paa Kwesi Williams, an International Baccalaureate Diploma student, received a monetary prize of 20,000 Japanese Yen (about GHC800), as well as a camera and photo books, for his creativity.
The SDGs photo contest is the first of its kind at the time and was launched in Japan in 2016, amassing a total of 624 entries from 47 countries, including Ghana.
The competition was initiated by United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Tokyo and Sophia University with special cooperation from Getty Images, Japan and endorsed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, Global Compact Network, Japanese International Cooperation Japan (JICA), Japan Civil Society Network on SDGs.
The completion skyrocketed MICS further to global attention, and they appreciated the 6-year-old boy whose image won them the 2017 SDGs Photo Contest with a substantial offer. They offered Nana Yaw Oman Krado a 100% educational scholarship.
The scholarship package, which ranged from GH9,000.00 to 14,000 dollars per year, was presented to him and a 13-year-old girl, Sarah Ohenewaa Darko, who was also a beneficiary of the school’s scholarship fund, at the School’s Entrepreneurship Education Day programme held at the Gomoa Manso school campus on December 15, 2017 by MICS founder, Obed Danquah.
MICS encourages students to build leadership and entrepreneurship abilities.
The school’s present student body includes pupils from Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, and, of course, Ghana.
