Organization Graduation
Offinso Charity Work

Nana Wiafe Akenten III, Paramount Chief of the Offinso Traditional Area, has lauded Mr. Gordon Redgrift, a British philanthropist, for raising funds for charity work in the area.

“The chiefs and people of Offinso are grateful for your humanitarian work and determination to give hope to the underprivileged in the society,” he noted.

The British philanthropist through his organisation ‘Action for Disability and Development in Offinso (ADDO)’, had in the last two-and-half years raised £23, 000 in support of the Physically Challenged Action Foundation at Maase in the Offinso Municipality.

The fund was used for the construction of a kitchen and dining room, as well as toilet facilities, decoration of dormitories and provision of mattresses and electric pumps and structure for a 2, 000-gallon water tank.

Nana Akenten, who was inaugurating the kitchen and dining hall complex at a ceremony at Offinso, advised religious organisations and corporate bodies to come to the aid of the Foundation.

The Foundation had over the years equipped persons with varied disabilities nationwide with employable skills in the area of shoe-making, dressmaking and carpentry.

It is one of the fastest-growing disability training centres in the country, providing a holistic development programme for those who were physically challenged, including healthcare and physiotherapy services.

Barima Antwi Boasiako, Founder and Director of the Foundation, said disability “does not mean inability”, and advised those with physical challenges to embrace employable skills-training.
Mr. Redgrift said with time his organisation would be supporting humanitarian work in other parts of the country.

“Our work is to give assistance to help in bringing hope to persons with disability and the underprivileged in general,” he stated.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
