Late Post: Emmanuel Agbeko Gamor Rotarian at Rotary Club of Accra-Ring Road Central

Ever since I can remember, my mother has been holding parties for children during Christmas holidays. The work, effort and selflessness usually ate into our own Christmas holidays and plans. But the joy on the faces of the children, and my mother's, always made it well worth it. She got the practice from her father.

Giving back in some way shape of form was inculcated in us by our family at an early age. In high school, I volunteered at a hospital for two years and met my godmother Kathryn Smith. In college I joined many a a volunteer organization including Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. and in Ghana I was thirsty to keep that balance - productivity coupled with impact as part of my routine.

I started with Rotaract see earlier posts here and here.  And created the habit of going outside my comfort zone for outreach programs, cervical cancer awareness drives and general doing-good in my community.

On February 24th, at my induction I was supported by my Rotaract Club of Adentan family and close friends. As I re-affirmed my commitment to "Service Above Self" #GamorLegacy
