Background Information of the Sekondi-Takoradi Progressive Club Global
The Sekondi-Takoradi Progressive Club Global (STPCG) is a World-wide Non-Profit Organization, Headquartered, and officially registered and recognized in the United States. Its members are from the US, UK, Europe, Africa and Canada. In 2019, a small molecule of an idea (to improve Sekondi-Takoradi) grew into a world-wide outreach, which became known as the SEKONDI-TAKORADI PROGRESSIVE CLUB GLOBAL.
The main aim is the development and progress of the Twin-City. Gradually, the norms and objectives attracted the most progress-loving and patriotic citizens of Sekondi-Takoradi around the world to come together to help in this endeavor. The love has been evident in our incredible achievements as a Club, within a short space of two-years.
The fact that our name and accomplishments have filled the FM airwaves of the area shows the impact we have made in the lives of our people. Our good work is summarized as follows:
- In March, 2020, the Sekondi Health Center was given modern face-lift and donated medical equipment as well.
- In June, 2020, we responded to the Fight against Covid-19 Pandemic by donating face-masks to hospitals and clinics in the Sekondi-Takoradi and Kwesimintsim area.
- In September, 2020, we renovated the Female Ward of the Takoradi Hospital and introduce the wearing of uniformed Gowns for Female Patients. We also donated medical equipment to the Unit.
- In April, 2021, we completed another extensive renovation of the Male Ward of the Takoradi Hospital and donated a number of medical equipment to the Unit.
