Kumasi, September 30, GNA – The African Enterprise Ghana (AE-Ghana), a non-denominational Christian Ministry which partners churches in Africa to evangelize cities through the word of God and deed, is establishing a strong presence in the “Garden City” through its typical multi-dimensional social approach to share the peace of God with the teeming residents.
Reverend Bernard Owusu-Sachie, Team Leader of AE-Ghana told the Ghana News Agency (GNA ) in Kumasi that a nine–day event, scheduled from Oct 1-9 would include a massive clean-up exercise to take place around the Bantama suburb, one of the city’s bee- hive of activities.
This would be followed by a float on the principal streets which would end at the Jubilee Park at Asem, where participants would converge and be addressed, after which, a quantity of dustbins would be donated to the Kumasi Metropolitan authority ((KMA), to help boost environmental sanitation in the Metropolis.
Added to these, the AE-Ghana team would also engage with the media in a day’s workshop at the Sunset Hotel on the theme “The Media as the Eye of God for a Nation”, on Wednesday, October 5.
The objective is to create a platform for the sharing of ideas in addition to brainstorming on how to protect the peace prevailing in the country.
Rev. Owusu-Sachie said a church service to be held at the Peyer Memorial Presbyterian church at Bantama on 9th October, would be the high point and called on all residents to shun all attitudes and actions which had the potential to disturb the peace of the country.
He said the AE-Ghana, from the beginning of the month, has held a residential craft training workshop for 20 selected commercial sex workers soap-making, hairdressing and others, all in a bid to empower them economically and take them out of that “obnoxious” trade.
After the training, the team leader said, they would be provided some seed money and start-up tools to enable them start their own businesses.
“Already, we have met Prison officers and arrangements are underway for us to meet the prisoners and share the gospel message of peace with them to help them embrace peace as they get integrated in the larger society after serving their prison terms”, he added.
