USPG Reps Tour Sekondi Diocese
The United Society Partners of the Gospel (USPG) representatives have been taken through a two day tour of the Takoradi, Axim and Enchi Archdeaconries where they inspected some poverty alleviation projects within the the Anglican Diocese of Sekondi and interacted with some of the beneficiaries at the St. Peter Anglican Church, Tarkwa.
The delegation was made up of the Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev'd Alexander Kobina Asmah, Rev'd Canon Joseph Emmanuel Wiafe - Diocesan Development Board Chairman, Rev'd Fr. Josiah Myles Abadoo - Bishop's Chaplain and Mr. Benjamin Wryter the Coordinator of the Poverty Alleviation Programme.
The USPG representatives namely Mr. Davidson Solanki and Ms. Emma Bridger had the opportunity to interact with the beneficiaries of the programme which the USPG has given a grant to support. The representatives made it clear that it is good that the programme has benefited a lot of people and that through the programme many have received a lot of economic benefits. They however noted that there is the need for mobilisation of more people in the various communities to access the programme.
The Diocesan Bishop of Sekondi Rt.Rev'd Asmah also appealed to the representatives to continue supporting the programme by increasing the grant so that more less privileged can be reached.
