The Board Chairman of Adamfo Ghana, a Charity Organisation based in the Netherlands, Dr. Adu-Ampong Emmanuel has urged partner Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in Ghana to continue their good works to further improve the lives of street connected children in the country.
The Chairman made the remarks at a meeting between the Board and the CSOs on Thursday, July 22, 2021 in Kumasi. The meeting formed part of the Board’s working visit to its CSO partners in Ghana.
Organisations present included Safe Child Advocacy (Kumasi), Centre for Development and Policy Advocacy (CEDEPA) and Yaakoro Youth Development Centre (YAYDEC), both based in Tamale.
Dr. Adu-Ampong indicated that the groundwork that the CSOs are doing is very crucial to ensure that no child is left behind in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal of ending poverty by 2030.
‘We are therefore here to encourage you to keep doing your best, because without you, we cannot achieve our goal of giving equal opportunities to every street child to make a decent living out of the streets.’ The Chairman added.
On her part, the Board Secretary of Adamfo Ghana, Mrs. Marre Adu-Ampong expressed gratitude to the Executive Directors of the CSOs for making time out of their busy schedules, to attend the meeting. She entreated the CSOs to foster more closer collaborations, because, they can only be stronger together.
She further added that the meeting was important for the partners to ‘explore plans for the future and ways of strengthening current partnerships.’
The CSOs thanked Adamfo Ghana for the support over the years. They also took turns to give an account of some of the success stories and challenges in their work.
