Club member Kojo Quartey was our guest speaker today. The topic of his presentation was on a project that he has taken on in Ashalaja, Ghana.
It’s called Angel City Project that he alone has put in motion. He hopes to have a school complex that will provide an orphanage, pregnancy center, nursery, homeless shelter as well as numerous other entities.
It all started with the purchase of land in 2003.
His next visit there will be in May 2020, with hopes of taking others there to possibly study abroad and help with build. Anyone from the club can ask questions about how they can help or if interested in going by contacting Kojo.
