Ahaspora Professionals Network in a quest to help communities develop has taken steps to assist in transforming Langma, a predominant Ga-Adangbe community.

The network which was formed by Ghanaian professionals who have lived or been educated outside Ghana and have returned home, signed a Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the community as a reminder of its four-year plan to invest in developmental projects in Langma.

According to the group, the move forms part of the ‘Ahaspora adopt a community program’ where they intend to engage with the people of Langma to help identify and solve some of the key challenges in the community.

This was disclosed by Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Ahaspora, Christabel Dadzie, at the launch of its “Adopt a Village project” in Langma, which also saw the group donating items to the community.

She said their key objective is to invest their human resources to develop soft skills and to equip people to better position themselves to support their community.

“Spending time enriching our communities is a great way to broaden our perceptions of the world. In doing this, we immerse ourselves in our community and surround ourselves with people who are dedicated to bettering the world. This allows us to gain a unique sense of purpose by serving those around us, one which often manifests in other areas of our lives.

The group wishes to see an increase in the health and well-being of 50 aged people in the community, to develop the soft skills and equip people through mentoring programs, skills development, and literacy programs, as well as health and wellness activities.

In education, it intends to support the final year Junior High School pupils to excel in their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), empowers teachers in the community with the needed resources to create an effective teaching and learning environment, and curate a farmer’s market project for the community to increase patronage of their agricultural produce and other inventions,” she stated as some plans the group intends to embark on.

She also called on other organisations to follow suit with the kind gesture of supporting communities towards development.

“I believe there’s a place for everyone and any citizen in the country can make a difference, being small or big. We are not a huge organisation that is heavily funded but we want to use our resources to support and our goal is that other people will also like what we are doing see that it is possible and also do the same,” she said.

For the Chief of the Langma community, Nii Buernotey Baaku I, the intervention of Ahaspora will help them, adding that the focus on education will add to the community’s effort to bring about improvement in that area.

He also called on government to come to their aid to build a sea defence wall that will prevent the sea from washing away and destroying their roads and houses.

“We are talking about the road, the beach, and the way the sea is washing our houses. We do not want the government to come to our aid when it turns into a big disaster. We need help now; we do not want anyone to come to our aid when people are dead. We need help to build sea defence walls,” he said.
