For a long time, Africa has been portrayed as a poor and insecure continent only surviving at the mercy of the international donor agencies. And while the continent is not on the same pedestal of economic development as Europe, America, and Asia, it is definitely not as destitute as it has been made to appear.
Numerous Africans are making significant strides toward attaining middle-income status, thus making the African success story a reality.
Challenges of the exigencies of the times compel a number of young African entrepreneurs to defy odds to make the needed impact on the minds of the ordinary persons. The verve and the positive energies embedded in these enterprising young people push them to scale up to face any kind of challenge.
This is the epitome of the lifestyle of one of Ghana’s fastest rising young CEOs, who sees success as so close if only one is focused and dedicated to whatever he or she has been appointed to do on earth.
Dr Williams Anarfi Sarpong popularly called DR. WASK, for only a few years, has raised high the name of Ghana on most international platforms.

With a huge conglomerate operating in Ghana under the WASK Group of Companies, DR. WASK who has great compassion for the needy is also the founder of the WASK Family Foundation; a foundation aimed at alleviating poverty and helping the underprivileged in society.
