In 2007 we shipped text books to elementary schools in Winneba. We also shipped hospital equipment such as wheel chairs, walkers, etc., to the Winneba Hospital.
In 2010 we financed the purchase of drill bits to George Prah, M.D. at the Winneba Hospital for surgical procedures at the hospital.
In 2011 and 2012, we provided financial assistance to the ArkCity Link Foundation in Winneba. The Foundation was launched on September 30, 2011. Its goal was to conduct computer workshops and training for elementary school kids to expose them to the world of computers. Although it is government policy that information and communication technology is taught in primary, junior and senior secondary schools, very few schools have computers. In schools that have no computers, students are taught just theory.
The foundation fills this gap. During the foundation’s first year, the 2011/2012 academic year, 22 primary and junior secondary schools with over 580 pupils participated in these workshops. Prizes are awarded to outstanding students who excel in the quizzes and competitions that are held from time to time. The foundation is headed by Mrs. Felicia Efua Arkhurst and is assisted by a board comprising Mr. Emmanuel Colecraft, Madam Georgina Asamoah, Dr. I. M. Botwe, Professor S. M. Quartey, Ms. Margaret Kwakwa, Mr. Kingsley O. Danquah, Mr. Isaac Oko-Baidoo, Nii Okyne and Mr. Isaac Sam-Mensah. Omanhene Neenyi Ghartey VII is their patron.
We are currently working on a Scholarship Program for the two Senior Secondary Schools in the traditional area, one in Winneba and the other in Senya Beraku. This is a pilot program. The goal is to award two scholarships, one in each school, to deserving SSS graduating students who have gained admission to any of the country’s universities, training colleges, polytechnics and nursing schools. It is projected to provide this financial aid to the qualifying students to see them through their tertiary education for a four-year period.
Over the years we have been able to undertake the following projects:
Rehabilitation of the Winneba Methodist Primary School buildings during the early 2000s.
Provided financial assistance to the library in Senya Beraku to help pay the staff and keep the doors open.
Collaborated with the Effutu Association of New York to provide over 600 writing desks and chairs to over 30 primary and middle schools in the Winneba traditional area.
In 2003/4 we sent two X-Ray machines to the Winneba Hospital. These X-Ray machines were donated by Kaiser Permanente in Panorama City, near Los Angeles, through the help of Margaret Forson, a Kaiser employee and member of AEFASC.
Thanks to the Lakeview Terrace Home Group of the Church on the Way in Van Nuys, we were able to obtain blankets, patient gowns, and other supplies which were shipped to the Winneba Hospital in 2006/2007.
