The United Society Partners of the Gospel (USPG) officials will be visiting the Anglican Diocese of Sekondi on 3rd July, 2017, to inspect beneficiaries of the various poverty alleviation projects under the auspices of the Anglican Diocese of Sekondi.

Mr. Davidson Solanki, International Programmes Manager (USPG) will be coming with Ms Emma Bridget, Monitoring and Evaluation Manager (USPG). They will be arriving in Accra on the evening of 3rd July, 2017 with British Airways.

Rev’d Canon Joseph Emmanuel Wiafe, The Diocesan Development Board Chairman said the Diocese has been involved in the poverty alleviation programme since 2013 and in 2016 received a grant of £10,000 from the USPG in support of the programme. Rev. Canon Wiafe believes that the visit of the USPG officials will help in the growth of the programme. He was also quick to add that so far seventy (70) individuals were on the programme with more to be added in the coming year.

The USPG officials will be visiting some beneficiaries of the poverty alleviation programme in Axim, Enchi, Tarkwa, Takoradi and Wassa Akropong where some of the beneficiaries are involved in sewing, grass cutter farming, mushroom farming, provision stores and many more.
While in Ghana, the USPG officials will pay a courtesy call on the Diocesan Bishop of Sekondi, Rt.Rev’d Alexander Kobina Asmah.
