Wednesday June 1, 2016
The Management and members of the Kloma Hengme association have successfully embarked on a number of developmental projects in Djerkiti, a rural farming community in the Lower Manya-Krobo Municipality. This forms part of the association’s rural development policy dubbed” The Kloma Hengme Rural Watch Project” which seeks to focus attention on the neglected rural communities in the Krobo area and to bring development to them.
The purpose of embarking on these projects is to bring development to Djerkiti and the other surrounding satellites villages such as Trawa, Akorma Korpa, Obelemanya, Onumako, and Oborpah.
These projects took place on Sunday (22nd May, 2016) at a large community durbar at Djerkiti which was well attended by the chiefs, queen mothers, citizens and pupils of the village and other satellite villages around it.
These developmental projects included embarking on health screening exercises on diseases such as malaria, blood sugar, blood pressure, and Hepatitis B and other ultra-sound services such as prostate, breast and kidney diagnosis.
To boost agriculture in the rural community since they serve as the bread basket of the Krobo area, spraying machines, insecticides and wellington boots were also distributed.
On the need to seek for the educational improvement of the area, Text and exercise books, mathematical sets, pens and other educational materials were distributed to all the school children in the area. An educational seminar was organized to counsel both parents and pupils on the need to prioritize education, since education will be the bedrock of our Krobo development.
Other items distributed included mosquito nets to all lactating mothers, and clothes to everyone present.
Aketebuor in Upper Manya-Krobo and Bukrum in Yilo-Krobo were already visited by the association under the Kloma Hengme Rural Watch Project which focuses on 5 prong areas–Rural health care, Agricultural and economic boost, Educational improvement, Humanitarian assistance and infrastructural development.
