WHY I AM
On 13th May, 2016, I had a distress call from a teacher from Osu Presby school. She told me about a young girl who was about to be forced into marriage. It was close to Ramadan and the young Girl was panicking because it seemed she had no choice in the matter.
I rushed out without thinking twice. My husband stopped me from driving and called a taxi because I was not in the right frame of mind to drive.
I called Alhaji A. R. Gomda of Daily Guide who linked me up with Police Commissioner Dr. Dampare .
PC Dr. Dampare gave me three officers who met me at a venue close to the school. The teacher, Rosemond brought the young lady and we had a chat with her. She was 16 years old. Brilliant and had Big dreams. Very ambitious.
I then rushed to the Chief Imam’s residence, without an appointment or prior notice 🙆🏽 ( well I wasn’t thinking straight). But when the great wise leader was told about my ‘mission’ he accepted to meet me immediately.
After listening to my story he immediately instructed the Imam’s and leaders to look into the matter and help the young lady.
So with the help of the police and Muslim leaders the young 16 year old student was rescued. Her uncle, a military officer heard about the issue and took her away to live with him.
Yesterday, I had another call from Rosemond, the teacher. This time with great excitement in her voice. Our girl is now at Accra Technical University pursuing her dream.
Yes, God is Good. He is very very very God and Faithful.
My dear friend, it still takes a village to raise a child.
It took a caring and concerned teacher who called me, a forward looking Muslim and journalist, Alhaji Gomda, a progressive and professional police officer, PC Dr. Dampare, a great and wise Leader, the Chief Imam and an Uncle who believed in the future of his niece, to rescue the young 16 year old girl.
Nobody knows who she will become in future, who she will also rescue, who she will marry etc.
My Name is Oheneyere Gifty Anti, I am a Bible believing, tongue speaking and prophecy believing Christian, not a perfect one though.
However, my mission and ministry is for all women and children, irr
