Accra July 9, GNA –
Actionplus Foundation a non-governmental organisation, has acquired a six -acre
land at Odumse near Dodowa in Accra to build a state of the art Empowerment
Centre.

The project forms part
of plans to help alleviate poverty from the Ghanaian community.

Actionplus Foundation
is a charity organisation opened in London in 1997 and Ghana this year.

The centre aims at
training women through capacity building to empower them with requisite skills
to enable them acquire useful experience to help sustain their lives.

Speaking to the Ghana
News Agency, Reverend Fred Annin, the Founder of Actionplus Foundation said
plans were far advanced to run the centre effectively and efficiently through a
well-designed and structured module of programmes.

Reverend Annin said
the key to help these women become independent was to roll out microfinance
scheme to support the trained women with financing to enable them become
independent and also work on their own after acquiring the necessary training
from the centre.

He said part of the
land secured would be used for fruit cultivation particularly mangoes because
the area was best known for cultivating the crop.

He said a processing
plant would be established to help in processing the mangoes into juices.

He said the centre
would have a modern health facility with new technology to help cater for HIV
and AIDS patients and also offer them with counselling services.

The project would
commence after the commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of Action plus
Foundation in October.

As part of series of
activities to commemorate the anniversary, Actionplus Foundation officially
opened Action Life Chapel International, with the aim of propagating the gospel
to help impact the lives of the people backsliding in Ghana.
