Nwineso No. 1 Development Fund launched
A GH¢100,000 Development Fund, under a Four-Year Development Plan, has been launched in aid of the development of Nwineso No. 1, a farming community in the Atwima Kwanwoma district.
Initiated by the Presiding Member of the Local Assembly, Mr. K. A. Yeboah-Asare, the fund is intended to help improve infrastructural facilities in the community, and improve on the quality of life of the people.
Mr. Yeboah-Asare, a 49-year old Architect and Managing Partner of Avangarde Design Services, a firm of Architects, Engineers and Project Management Consultants, and also the Assembly Member for Nwineso No. 1, explained that the fund would focus on the provision of educational facilities, access to potable water, drainage and streets, and provision of a modern market for the community.
He challenged colleague assembly members to take up the challenge to replicate his initiative in their respective electoral areas, because that would help them to effortlessly work for the development of the entire district.
He said that was the only way they could justify the confidence reposed in them by their constituents to represent them in decision making for development at the local assembly.
The Presiding Member, elected on Tuesday March 29, 2011, polling 34 votes against 14 by Mr. Charles Antwi-Boasiako, a 38-year old businessman, also intends to establish an education fund to cater for the educational needs of brilliant but needy students in the locality.
He intends to offer scholarships to students in the community who pass their Basic Entrance Certificate Examinations (BECE) with aggregate 12, to further their education at the second cycle level.
Until the education fund is instituted, Mr. Yeboah-Asare has given the assurance to use his monthly allowance, as presiding member, into sorting out the basic educational needs of selected deserving students in the community.
Mr. Asare-Yeboah has singlehandedly provided 29 street lights for Nwineso No.1 from his own resources, since he was elected Assembly Member.
An appeal for funds at the launching yielded GH¢3,413.00.
