Some of the selected kids from Kentinkrono and Nsenie

TWO HUNDRED children between the ages of three and six, at Kentinkrono and Nsenie in Kumasi, have been selected to benefit from a life-changing package.

This package, christened ?Kent/Nsenie Pentecost Child Development Centre? would see these kids, from deprived homes, being assisted in diverse ways.

As part of the package, the beneficiary children would be assisted in the areas of education, health and proper spiritual growth.

The package which would last for about two decades would help shape the lives of the beneficiaries and make them influential people in future.

Compassion International Ghana (CIG), a non-governmental organization is embarking on the project in connection with Kentinkrono Pentecost Church.

CIG had initiated similar projects at the Eastern, Volta, Central and Greater Accra regions, aimed at helping needy children to have a better future.

Speaking at the official launching of the Kentinkrono/Nsenie project, Obed Arthur, Partnership Facilitator, Kumasi Cluster, described children as vulnerable.

He noted that the project is geared towards training the selected kids to become responsible adults who would play leading roles to transform Ghana.

Mr Arthur said the selected children would be assisted in the areas of education and health until they attained 22 years.

He added that the 200 children would also be trained in Christian principles so that they would abhor all social cankers as they grow up.

Mr Arthur warned parents whose kids have been selected not to refrain from taking care of the children following the CIG?s intervention.

He explained that CIG and the parents of the selected kids would work together to help make the future of the kids bright.

Dr Joe Quansah, Chairman, Church Partner Committee, Kentinkrono Pentecost, assured that the selected children would be trained in the ways of the Lord.

He noted that the selected kids would be meeting every Saturday where they would be educated to become responsible people.

Dr Quansah added that some trained people would also be visiting the selected kids in their various homes, periodically, to monitor their progress.

He entreated the people of Kentinkrono and Nsenie to wholeheartedly support the programme since it would help better the lives of the children.

Hon Elizabeth Agyeman, MP for Oforikrom, in a speech read on her behalf, described the project as a positive move to better the lives of the kids.

The Law Maker therefore implored people in the area to contribute to make the project a huge success.
