On Sunday, 11th April 2021, I honoured the invitation sent to me by Amanful Ahenfie Youth Association in Takoradi Amanful for the launching of their voluntary social organisation.
It was a welcomed and purposeful event. I was keen on my presentation per my observation that many such groups overly focus on contribution to funerals, naming ceremonies, etc as their main objective, which I expressed my dissatisfaction.
I therefore took the view that in as much as welfare is good, the association should largely focus on economic empowerment of its members because that ensures sustainability.

I contributed GHC 10,000.00 as seed money to ensure smooth function of the club. Furthermore, I cautioned against acts that are detrimental to the success of the association.
