Intervention: CoRe

I am navigating my way out of my challenges. 

Seth’s publishing business was severely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The mentoring received through the CoRe Programme has given him a road map to restoration. Seth shares his story with us.

My name is Seth Hammond, a publisher based in Ho in the early days of COVID-19 but have currently relocated to Agbozume, near Aflao in the Volta Region. My business as a publisher was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything literally came to a standstill.

I heard about CoRe through a text message from a friend. I subsequently signed up for the Banking and Finance mentoring group. Through CoRe, I have been equipped with the requisite knowledge and skills to navigate my way out of any adversity and become successful. The programme has enabled me to see some opportunities even in these difficulties, and they are now serving as a source of income.

Aside from my publishing business, I now sell Kente cloths. I am also running a talent hunt programme where I seek to identify and nurture talents in young people especially in music. The CoRe Programme has helped me to reposition myself in all these businesses.

I’ve also learnt a lot about social media marketing, branding and how to manage my clients. All these have helped to sustain me and keep my businesses thriving during these difficult times of the pandemic. I am learning a lot more from the programme as the days go by.

On the relationship front, I have also received some helpful insights into how to manage my family and work and how to respond to various work-related challenges. These are some of the benefits I have gained from my CoRe mentoring group. I intend to share my experiences with others to enable them scale through their own challenges and accomplish their goals in life.

That’s the spirit of CoRe – learning together and growing together.
