The chiefs of Oguaa in the Sekyere East District in the Ashanti Region have donated 10 acres of land to the Jehovah Jireh Ministry (JJM), a US-based non-governmental organization, to undertake a development project in the area. The traditional council of Oguaa, under the leadership of Nana Obeng Bediako Frimpong, Oguaahene, has spearheaded this development agenda to open up the area and create jobs for the people, as well as promote infrastructural development.

The land donation will be used to set up a preschool, a teacher training college, and an empowerment training center to provide technical and vocational training for residents, particularly teenage mothers who have dropped out of school. The proposed establishment of the empowerment center will help JJM to focus on training school dropouts, particularly teenage mothers, to acquire skills that will enable them to become self-reliant.

JJM has been engaged in providing hot meals for the homeless, helping students go back to school, and restoring destitute and substance addicts. The organization has partnered with Africa Women Rising (AWR), a local NGO, to support students of Oguaa SDA school with educational materials.

To celebrate the Easter festivities, AWR in partnership with JJM donated food items worth thousands of Ghana cedis to the community members, including boxes of mackerel, bags of rice, and cooking oil. AWR believes in women empowerment and has been working with the community to promote girl education, women empowerment, and education in general. The organization is currently sponsoring the education of two girls from the community, with one at the university.

The President of AWR, Rev Nana Sekyere, said that JJM had come to sponsor the construction of a school project for the community through the efforts of AWR. All of these efforts are geared towards empowering community members, particularly girls, with education. AWR will continue to support the community, especially women and children, to have a head start in life.

For the most part, the donation of land to JJM is a significant step towards developing the community in Oguaa. It will help to open up the area, create jobs, and promote infrastructural development. The establishment of a preschool, teacher training college, and empowerment training center will go a long way in providing technical and vocational training for residents, especially teenage mothers who have dropped out of school.
