The Ntankoro District of The Church of Pentecost, in partnership with the Kobeda Pentecost Child Development Center and Compassion International Ghana, has dedicated a 6-unit classroom block, 10-seater toilet facility and a mechanised water supply system for the Kobeda community in the Bono East Region of Ghana.
This colourful event took place on Tuesday, March 30, 2021. The classroom block also has two master offices as well as washrooms.
The Kintampo Sawaba District Minister, Pastor Peter Akabere, who chaired the event on behalf of the Kintampo Area Head, was full of appreciation to Compassion International, for putting up such major facilities in the community.
According to him, these facilities are timely for the community folks since there is no proper place of defecation in the community and also due to the poor state of the old school structure.
The Jema Nkwanta District Minister, Overseer Prince Augustine Ababio, in a sermon based on Genesis 2:8-15, admonished members of the community to be good stewards of the facilities that has been given to themselves.
He cautioned all and sundry to see the handling of these facilities as a sole and collective responsibility. He advised the members of the community to own the facilities at heart and ensure they do everything possible within their powers to keep it in good state and by so doing, it will last for them for posterity to also have a share of it.
Miss Juliana Asantewaa, Director of the Kobeda Pentecost Child’s Development Centre, mentioned that the fund was received by some donors from the Netherlands who visited Ghana and were hosted in Kobeda last year.
“Upon their visit we placed our proposal to them, and they assured us of helping us construct these beautiful facilities,” she said.
Miss Asantewaa added that the total cost of the projects was GHS 447,000.00.
Overseer Samuel Katakyie Ware, the Ntankoro District Minister, was full of praise for the wonderful support received from these donors.
Representatives from the Ghana Education Service (GES), Member of Parliament for Kintampo North Constituency, chiefs of the community were given some time to express their appreciation and fraternal greetings.
In attendance also were Overseers Julius Aryee (Babator District), Fred Stephen Safo (Asantekwa District), Elder Joseph Agyei (Area Executive Committee Member), representatives of some Compassion project coordinators within the Kintampo municipality and officers of the Ntankoro District.
