Lovelace Elikplim Gobah is a principal administrative officer at the Regional Education Office of the Ghana Education Service in Cape Coast. She is a knowledgeable, enthusiastic person whose work involves receiving and dispatching mail to teaching and non-teaching staff.

Today, we’re putting the spotlight on Lovelace because of her passion for mentoring and her commitment to influencing her mentees’ lives for good. She describes her experience as a mentor in the Ahaspora Changing Mindsets Mentoring Program as “overwhelming and fulfilling”. 


I am motivated to help people and give back to society because of the support I have received from others. I particularly enjoy being part of the Ahaspora community; it allows me to positively impact lives.

I have three mentees who are currently enrolled at KNUST and Ashesi University, and the experience has been fantastic and overwhelming. I look forward to having more mentees in the future.

Some of the most memorable moments with my mentees involve meeting them for leisurely activities like painting. They allow us to get to know each other better and build meaningful connections while having fun.

My advice to anyone who aspires to be a mentor is this: take a step and embrace opportunities to positively influence teenagers. To me, there is no better way to give back to society. I recommend the Ahaspora’s mentoring program to everyone because it is an eye-opener and leaves you feeling fulfilled from helping others.’’
