Remembering the Accra flood and fire victims

Ghana High Commission to hold memorial service for fire and flood victims

The tragic events of last week Wednesday night in Accra, in which heavy floods and an explosion at a goil fuel station resulted in the loss of nearly 200 lives will never be forgotten. We’ve all seen the horrific images and videos of the aftermath and together, the whole of Ghana have, and still mourn all those who lost their lives. Ghanaians have never come together as we have these past few days in recent memory.

 

And it is in solidarity with our brothers and sister back home, that the Ghana High Commission, in collaboration with the Ghana Christian Council in the UK, have invited all Ghanaians in the UK  and sympathizers to a memorial service for all those who unfortunately lost their lives in the fire and floods. The details for the service are as follows:

 

Venue: Methodist Central Hall, Storeys Gate, London, SW1H 9NH
Date: Sunday 14thh June
Time: 2:00pm

Let us all come together to pay our respects and remember those who are no longer with us.

Why the Future of Ghana…

In less than 3 generations 41% of the world’s youth will be African”, “By 2035, Africa’s labour force will be larger than China’s” (Mo Ibrahim Foundation)…

Thus we believe now is time to celebrate, mobilize and invest in young people of Ghanaian heritage at a critical time in Africa’s growth.

Who are Ghana’s Future leaders? Who are the young people out there innovating and creating change? …… It’s about time we found out!

Award winning London based company Me FiRi Ghana are on a mission to find the pioneers and innovators of the Future by launching the Future of Ghana campaign.

The main objective of the campaign is to organize and mobilize Ghanaian talent for the development of Ghana by undertaking a global search for the top 30 Ghanaian talent aged 18 – 30 years – impacting industries around the world. The search will consist of an open nomination process driven through social media, media partners and using the official hashtag #FutureofGhana with the top 30 being featured in online publication. The secondary objective will be to stage a “Dragon’s Den” style competition in Ghana for budding entrepreneurs and small/medium size business owners hoping to expand.

Nominations for the Future of Ghana are now open to the public until 17 December 2014 via the website. Once closed nominees will be whittled down to a top 30 by a select judging panel, ready for the publication release in March 2015. The esteemed judging panel will be revealed the week commencing 1 December 2014 so look out for updates on twitter.

The campaign has been endorsed by Ghanaian High Commissioner to the UK H.E Victor Emmanuel Smith. He has pledged his commitment to the campaign by agreeing to host a luncheon with a select number of the top 30 pioneers in the spring of 2015.

Future of Ghana Patron and pioneering photographer James Barnor says of the initiative;

“I am privileged to be chosen as patron for the Future of Ghana initiative. It is refreshing to see young Ghanaians in the Diaspora so forward thinking and genuinely passionate about our nation’s future. This initiative will mobilize and inspire a generation of Ghanaians to come together and utilize their skills for the development of Ghana. I can see history in the making. For that reason I am more than happy to be involved”

Let’s make history!
