    Leading by Example in Accra

    Charles Sono-Koree served as a stake president in Accra, Ghana, in 1998 when the employment resource center was just getting started. Though he was already stably employed, he taught that “education has no end” and enrolled in classes himself. “To be very honest with myself, I didn’t know how to work with [a] computer,” he explained. He later told stake members, “I learned to work on the computer at the employment resource center.”
