Apologies, Madinghana -sidelined by an erratic internet server…

Recently, our Kumasi East Rotary Club went to a joyful occasion. A new baby ward was commissioned by the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, H.E. Mr Billy Williams. He and his wife were representing the Carter family. Aimee Carter came to Ghana as a volunteer and was so taken by the Ashan Children’s Home where she worked for a brief time that she returned to Australia and began to raise funds for its development, actually “a lot of money.” This is a common scenario here in Ghana and testimony to the power of one.

Wonderful Testimony to Concerted Effort


Another example of the power of one is Mr Jim Konadu, a diaspora n Ghanaian who returned to Ghana in 1999 to start Ashan which gets its name from the Bible, a place of refuge. At the ceremony, Mr. Konadu had time to recognize and show appreciation to those who helped him along the way. Primary among the many supporters was the local chief who gave very valuable land right on the main road for the project FREE OF CHARGE, another example of the power of one.

Here are some pictures:

OH HAPPY DAY!

During the afternoon, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the High Commissioner and his wife. How surprised they were to meet someone from Four Villages Inn, and how surprised I was when Mrs. Williams said they were going to contact us to arrange a market tour with Comfort the following day.

I quietly said, “But you haven’t stayed with us.The tours are available to our guests exclusively.” Comfort is another example of the power of one in enhancing the quality experience staying at Four Villages Inn
