Each year we celebrate our Independence Day as a republic and activities of the day are mostly marked with school children and the working class parading at various stadia and durbar grounds across the country. This has apparently not yielded much benefits to the nation as students and pupils as well as professionals spend hours of their precious productive time rehearsing under the scotching sun.
The Independence Day development project is therefore set to enhance the celebration of our independence as a nation. This project is thus aimed at encouraging individuals as well as communities and various institutions, to pick up any challenge they are facing in their communities and try to find ways of resolving them independently. This in a way, is to put into practice the true meaning of our independence, a people capable of resolving their own issues without depending heavily on external support.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
- The invitation is extended to Schools (From primary to University)
- All professional institutions.
- All communities, towns and villages.
- Any well motivated individual.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT
a. SOLVING LONG EXISTING PROBLEMS
- Identify any long-standing problem or challenge your community/school has been facing over the past years.
- Develop a concept that demonstrates how this issue would be resolved.
- Outline a clear strategy to resolve this issue with the support of your community.
- Add any photos and videos as supporting document.
- Mail to email@example.com for further consideration.
b. DEVELOPING SOLUTIONS AGAINST FUTURE ISSUES
One of the key ways of development is coming up with solutions against future problems or challenges that are yet to manifest themselves. As the age old saying goes, “prevention is better than cure”. That is why the INDEPENDENCE DAY DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGE encourages individuals, communities and institutions to look for solutions against future issues. Solutions that would prevent future disasters or problems for their community, nation or our dear continent, Africa.
- Identify any foreseeable problem your community is likely to face in the future.
- Follow instructions as listed above (2 to 5)
Selected projects would be given professional guide by volunteers from various professional bodies and not for profit organizations including the Project Management Institute community, Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, Ghana Institute of Engineering, Institution of Engineering and Technology, Project Managers without Borders, etc.
There would be a monthly evaluation and assessment of projects selected. Their respective progress would be published on blogs.sokocentre.com, Facebook page of Our Great African Foundation, Social media pages of OK entertainment and the social media pages of our star lead, Okyeame Kwame.
The main support to be enjoyed by all projects would mainly be in the demain of technical support. There is a group of solid project manager as well as other professionals who are ready and willing to support any individual or group of persons with free consulting services.
Basically, each project owner is supposed to find independent financial support for their projects as way of showing their independence. We, as the organizers would however endeavour to support further via diverse ways. To get adequate funding for this project, various means would be employed.
- A percentage of the sales of the audio book entitled “We have a dream of a better Africa, let us build mother Africa together”, written by Rev. Fr. Maxwell Wullar, and Kodzo Deku, would be committed to this effect.
- Donations from individuals and companies towards this project.
