Speaking at the launch, the beauty queen, Baci indicated that the poor condition of students in the northern part of Ghana made her establish Malol- lol Ghana Foundation.
“When I went round the Upper West Region, I realized that there are countless brilliant but needy students and that brought tears to my eyes. These students lack basic resources for their basic education and that have made me establish this foundation to help promote basic education in the country.”
She further said, “I have realized that we need to push a lot of students when it comes to ICT, also push a lot of students to inculcate good reading habit so that they will grow with and again show them how to wash their hands to prevent them from diseases.”
Explaining the Sisala word ‘Malol- lol’ further, Baci said “I represent a brand that deals with culture, which is Ghana Most beautiful so I had to use a name which also represents my culture that is why I came about Malol- lol. It means Thank You.”
Chiefs of Wala Traditional Council in a durbar last year, honored Baci with the title ‘Papaaliba-Pognaa’ which means ‘Queen mother for the youth’ to celebrate her achievements and her positive contribution towards the society.
