60-Year-Old JHS Graduate, Elizabeth Yamoah Gifted Ghc1000 By Swedru Teachers Cooperative Union

The Swedru Teachers Cooperative Credit Union is donating a whooping amount of Ghc1,000 to Maame Elizabeth Yamoah, the oldest woman in the history of Ghana to ever write the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Swedru Teachers Cooperative Credit Union donated a cash of GHC 1,000 to Maame Elizabeth Yamoah, 57-year-old JHS graduate, on Friday, September 18, 2020 for having completed her Junior High School education.

Maame Elizabeth Yamoah was also named by the Credit Union as an Ambassador for Youth Saving Account in Ghana.

God Bless you Swedru Teachers Cooperative Credit Union for considering the woman and hopes and prays as she plans to complete her Senior High School education, she will have something to support her financially by then.

See the screenshot of the moment she got the Swedru Teachers Cooperative Credit Union token below:

Agona Odoben Presby Junior High School's 60-year-old student was part of the 531,705 candidates who sat for BECE 2020 that came to a close today, September 18, 2020.

Unfortunately, the increase in the elderly population is taking place at the same time as conventional mechanisms of security and treatment for the elderly are breaking down due to urbanisation, socio-economic change and globalisation.
