‘The awardees were chosen from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information’s (MoEYI) six regions and also featured a special award for a top-performing female child of a LASCO employee. “We look forward to brightening the path to tomorrow for our nation’s children. Each cohort inspires us to keep advocating for our young girls, so that their academic path to living their dreams is made a little easier. LASCO is passionate about providing our youth with equal opportunities for success’ explained Renee Rose, Brand Manager for LASCO Curves.
For the last six years, LASCO has worked alongside inspiration-leaders across the various disciplines including health, youth advocacy and social reform to encourage girls to be the woman they dream of becoming.
