Matsekorpe-Ada Epicenter inaugurated
The Ada West District Assembly says it is prepared to partner organisations who share same goals with them and are ready to support in improving the lives of the people.
Mr Anthony Yaw Klokpah, District Chief Executive for Ada West, said this at the inauguration of Matsekorpe-Ada Epicenter, a facility that has a clinic, conference hall, community banking hall, food bank and space for expansion into a trading hub.
The facility was partly financed by The Hunger Project Ghana with GHc90,000 and the beneficiary communities supported with GHc50,000 including a five acre-land and labour.
The then Dangme East District Assembly also donated GHc2,400 towards the construction.
Mr Klokpah said the Assembly would extend water and electricity to the facility.
Mr Klokpah said he was not enthused about the Ada West District as having the highest prevalent rate in HIV and AIDS in the Greater Accra Region and that measure were being put in place to reverse the spread of the virus.
Mr John Sarpong Amoakohene, the National Programme Officer of Hunger Project Ghana, said the name Hunger Project has erroneously been understood by some people as hunger of the stomach.
He said the Project looked at hunger in a holistic manner namely literacy, education, health, rights, awareness, ability to feel good about oneself, hunger for self-esteem, income generation, opportunities, nutrition and the rest.
