In the midst of it all, we seem to forget one thing. That “Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.”—Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
Whatever we seek to do, especially in this COVID-19 times, we need to understand that one of the most effective ways to communicate is to communicate in our Mother Language(s) among ourselves. Our Mother Language is a safe bridge among ourselves.
For, according to Sir P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar, “Unity in diversity begins in making the mother tongue as the medium of communication, not as the medium of patriotism”
On this note, we invite you to be part of this year’s SANEGBAA, a festival of Ghanaian languages dedicated to the commemoration of UNESCO’s annual International Mother Language Day.
COVID-19 is real and so you must not travel to a venue to be part of this all-important event. Wherever you’re, with your data, you can easily be part; it’s the Virtual edition—Zoom, Webinar, Facebook, Twitter & on Kantanka Television.
Fellow Ghanaians, here and beyond, it’s a season of Love; Love yourself, Love your Mother Tongue!
Be a Proud Ghanaian: Speak your Mother Tongue!
