Greetings from Norway! Happy new year 2011! here is my January vote for you. How are you doing?

I was wondering if you would like to consider becoming one of my team for my fundraiser Trevor Project, it is about helping out young people who are being bullied and discriminated for who they are take a look here http://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiserelise it is so important that we raise our voices towards this, because already so many have taken their own life because of being bullied and discriminated. I hope you want to be a part of my fundraiser team.

To become a team member for my fundraiser for The Trevor Project, go to the link above and then push to the black button that says "become a team member", then wait for Crowdrise to load. You will get a confirmation email that you now are a team member for my fundraiser for The Trevor Project.

Happy New Year! Here is a January vote for you! :) I ask you to please check out my project benefiting Fellowship Health Resources of RI. It is a nonprofit agency providing both clinical and support services to people recovering from mental illness, co-occurring disorders, and other life challenges. It would mean so much to me if you could make a donation because this is a charity that is very personal to me. Best of luck with all your efforts!

Happy New Year! Hoping 2011 brings you a happy and successful fundraising year! Here's a new year vote for you!

Take a look at my Half The Sky project, Dan (http://www.crowdrise.com/imdanturton) and I are travelling to China in August to teach English for a year and to volunteer in orphanages. We're hoping to raise enough money for a medical care scholarship ($1135 each).

Keep up the great work!

Dr. Clement Apaak
Legon, Accra, Greater Accra Region Ghana
CROWDRISING SINCE: Jan 02, 2011
Stuff About Me:
Dr. Clement Abas Apaak is a citizen of Ghana, a known social advocate, community organizer, public speaker, media commentator, and an educator. He holds a PhD from Simon Fraser University (SFU), Canada, an M.Phil. from the University Of Bergen, Norway, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University Of Ghana. He was the first international student to be elected to a university board of Governors in British Columbia, Canada and the first African valedictorian of his graduation class. He is a former SFU senator and student society president, and is the founder of Canadian Students for Darfur, a youth and student based organisation that has raised over $40,000 to support refugees of the Darfur conflict in partnership with Oxfam Canada.

He recently accepted a lectureship at the University of Ghana, but has expressed an interest in serving mother Ghana outside the university if his many years of experience from various parts of the world will be beneficial to Ghana. Before taking the appointment at the University of Ghana, he lectured Anthropology, History, and Archaeology at Simon Fraser University and Quest University, both in British Columbia Canada, and was appointed to the Gastown Historic Area Planning Committee of the City of Vancouver.

Dr. Apaak has a vast pool of experience from a wide range of backgrounds. Yet, the one thing that stands out is that he has always devoted time to the youth; by engaging, inspiring and advocating for them. Over the years he has donated his time, knowledge and resources to help young people in Canada and recently in Ghana. His role as a dedicated advocate and believer in the power of the youth in transforming society has guided him over the years. This is why he has committed to providing the right guidance and tools to the youth as his way to help them realise their potential. He is guided by a conviction that the youth are the leaders of today and need to be empowered to take up their responsibility in Ghana and in other parts of the world. Dr. Apaak has fearlessly advocated for the youth and has taken advantage of every opportunity to inspire them, mostly through his public speeches, his deeds and by volunteering to help those in need.

Dr. Apaak founded and registered an NGO called Direct Assistance Network-Ghana, with a chapter in Canada, in 2010. It is aimed at mobilising funds and educational supplies from Canada to help provide and improve educational opportunities for students in northern Ghana. He launched Direct Assistance Network in Sandema Senior High Technical School, the secondary school he attended in Ghana. He expects to support at least 20 girls in school with $100 per year as well as provide computers and books to each of the schools the girls he will support will be drawn from.

His recent activities in Ghana and the accomplishments he has chalked in Canada all point to his abilities and skills when it comes to youth related issues, needs and activities. Dr. Apaak was the keynote speaker at an event arranged by the Bulsa Students Association in the Sandema District of the Upper East Region earlier this year, where he spoke on the importance of youth mentorship. He also volunteered to serve as a Resident Scholar of the Association of Global Citizens – Ghana (AGC), under the auspices of its Students for Peace Program. He delivered keynote addresses in six Senior High Schools in Ghana between March and June 2010 - Akosombo International, Lincoln Memorial, Ghana International, Yaa Asantiwaa, Kumasi Girl and Prepeh College - as part of the call by the United Nations General Assembly resolution urging Member States of the Organisation to develop educational programmes about Holocaust history to assist the youth to learn the lessons of the Holocaust as to prevent future acts of genocide. He focused on the topic the "Holocaust: The Role of Youth in Ending Discrimination, Prejudice and Hatred".
