The German humanistic Philosopher and social Psychologist-Erich Fromm captured the true essence of giving to others when he said:
“Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.”
Dr. Adu Boateng, CEO of EndPoint Homeopathic Clinic with branches in Accra, Tema and Kumasi is on a daily unending mission to help humanity, by providing affordable and sometimes even free healthcare to those in need—when he can easily forget humanity and amass as much wealth as possible.
Beyond the services of EndPoint Homeopathic Clinic, Dr. Boateng is a donor to many Ghanaian charitable organisations and also operates an in-house charitable initiative of reaching out to the poor which has seen him erect several buildings for the needy across the country, with one his recent being for the “Eye of the Lord Orphanage” at Nsawam.
Just like most ‘big’ men in Ghana, Dr. Boateng started his education in Ghana—and furthered it in India and Germany.
“I obtained my first degree from the University of Education, Winneba,” he told GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Editor-Chris Vincent Agyapong Febiri during a recent road trip from Accra to the University of Education, Winneba, a place he still holds close to his heart.
Not long ago, Dr. Boateng promised to help solve one of the biggest problems facing students who become mothers while studying at the university at the 9th anniversary of the institution’s Childhood Care Education Students Association of Ghana (CCESAG), an event he chaired–by building a modern Day Care Centre for the University.
The initiative is to support student mothers to be able to attend the needed lectures while their children are taken care of at the on-campus Day Care centre—to ensure that female students do not drop out by virtue of becoming a mother.
To achieve it, Dr. Boateng is single-handedly funding a 6-class room Day Care Centre, equipped with an office, a resource centre and toilet facilities which is about to be roofed.
Speaking to GhanaCelebrities.Com, Dr. Boateng stated that, “it’s my wish to see many of our women get higher education and one of the obstacles to this is child birth, even for those who are already in universities.”
“The moment a student gives birth, she is presented with the difficult choice to either truncate her studies to take care of her child or have the child taken away. Even our mature students face this same predicament,” he added.
Dr. Boateng who regards the Day Care Centre to be his small contribution to solving a bigger nationwide educational problem mentioned that “this is my alma mater and with time, I will even do more” to help with the education of those who will also pass through this place.
