Many towns in Ghana don’t have a community centre, leaving residents without a good space for exercise and community involvement. While the process of building a community centre can often be difficult and expensive, they provide incalculable benefits for the communities where they are built.

In his dream to make Effutu Constituency the gateway to the Central Region, the MP since has embarked on many projects. From health, education, security, road infrastructure and many others, the MP has been building Community Centers across the constituency.

Already, 11 community centres have been completed and are being used. Four other community centres are at various stages of completion. The community centres are solely the initiative of Afenyo-Markin who funded the construction and handed them over to the city authorities for management.

The facilities which come with an office and store room are open to the public for business seminars, training sessions, corporate retreats, receptions and dinners, banquets, family events, and a host of other activities. The function areas accommodate up to 500 people.

On arrival at New Winneba, the team cited the construction of a community centre at a place called Sign Board. Although work has stalled, checks revealed that the contractor was working to complete a library facility. Once that was completed, the contractor was expected to continue work which is 50pecent completed. When fully completed, the centre will serve the people of New Winneba.

After the stop at New Winneba, the team proceeded to New Ateitu. Similarly, the community centre was under construction. Unlike the one at New Winneba, this centre is at the final stage of completion.
