The Affum-Darkwah Mission International Inc. inaugurated in Ghana
New Jersey based non-profit organization; The Affum-Darkwah Mission International Inc. (A.K.A.TADMI Inc.) was successfully inaugurated on October 19, 2013 at Gbetsile, Tema in Ghana.
The organization officially opened its first office to provide hope to the needy and care for the orphans in the area. In his opening address, the Founder and CEO, Mr. Daniel Affum-Darkwah, expressed his heartfelt thanks to God for making it possible for TADMI to come this far. “This is the beginning of many great things to happen to Gbetsile, Ghana and the world,” he said.
It is the aim of TADMI to establish offices across Ghana and beyond, so that everyone who needs help can have easy access to a nearby office.
The president said, TADMI is a different kind of NGO whose aim is to empower and encourage people to be self-reliant. He wants to help alleviate the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependency of any kind.
Mr. Edward Meyer, who is the director of Fundraising and International Operations, said TADMI is about to show the world what a mustard seed can do. With faith as a guiding light to our mission and work, we believe TADMI can enrich people’s lives one at a time to make the world a better place to live. He said although our beginning may be small, our future is bright.
On a very personal note, Mr. Hugh Aryee, CEO of Proffworld Gh. Ltd said he always stays with Mr. Affum-Darkwah any time he visits the US and knows how hardworking he is, and urged everyone to support TADMI because without their generous support, the mission cannot be accomplished.
The children from Save Them Young and Teshie Orphanages were also present and gave a rousing performance to entertain the audience, to show that, although they may not have parents, they are happy to be alive and have someone to take care for them.
Among the participant was a representative from the Chief of Gbetsile, who gave a donation of Ghc100.00 as a support to TADMI and welcomed TADMI to the community. The Chief, Queen and Elders of Agame in Ve-Golokwati, in the Volta Region, who helped cut the ribbon, were also present to show their support for TADMI.
The event would not have been accomplished without the marvelous work of the M.C. Maame Akuabakuma Prempeh, a news presenter, who also gave the ribbon cutting and closing prayers to make the ceremony a success.
The event was chaired by the head pastor of ICGC – Zoe Temple, Rev. Kojo Amo-Asare, who encouraged the attendees to recognize the vision and show their support for TADMI.
After the inauguration, TADMI visited about five orphanages and donated books, cloths, some food imported from the USA. Many children were registered to be assisted with their education or learn a trade.
