The District Chief Executive for the Kwahu Afram Plains North in the Eastern Region, Hon. Samuel Kena has applauded the Hunger Project Ghana (THP-Ghana) for their insistent efforts aimed at improving the living conditions of Ghanaians in rural areas through tailored-programs that unite about 5 or more communities under what is termed as the Epicenter Strategy. The DCE who had spent most of his years in the district said, he has always admired the programs implemented by THP even before his appointment as the head of the Assembly because, the process unifies rural communities to pursue a common interest of ending poverty and hunger.
Hon. Kena pledged the preparedness of the Assembly to partner with THP-Ghana on upcoming projects, assuring them the Assembly’s involvement in the activities of The Hunger Project in the Area than they had before. He indicated that, it is towards this goal that the Assembly selected participants from the Mem-Chemfre Epicenter to be a part of a Trade Exhibition program being organized in the Regional Capital, Koforidua.
The Country Director, Mr. Samuel Erasmus Afrane who was inspired by the DCE’s admiration for his organization stated that, the major target of THP’s program is to help lessen the burden of the Local and Central Governments and ensure that rural people gain access to basic communal facilities and services. He was thankful for the unceasing support shown by the Assembly to safeguard THP’s programs.
Global Investors & Partners from Sweden and Norway arrived in the Country on 3rd September, 2017 on a five-day tour, projected to assist survey progress of Epicenters in some rural communities in the country. The group visited the Asenema, Odumase –Wawase, Nkawanda and the Mem-Chemfre Epicenters during their stay Ghana.
