Ghanafest 2014 Fundraising Dinner Dance

The cash strapped Ghana National Council of Metropolitan Chicago, GNC, may have further deepened their woes as the much anticipated fundraiser for the upcoming Ghanafest was poorly attended by members of the council and the Ghanaian community in general. Having inherited the largest debt to date, about $14,000.00 (the debt has not been verified and acknowledged by the GNC), from the previous administration headed by President John Henry Assabill, President Nsiah and his team intends to use proceeds from the fundraiser to shore in much needed funds to fund Ghanafest 2014.This may however turn out to be a lost venture as attendance was dismal.

President Nsiah used the occasion to inform attendees and the community at large that the GNC is currently working on the following:
• Scholarship awards to deserving college bound students in the community.
• Group life insurance scheme is in the pipeline for members of the community. He explained that the council will take over payments of defaulters. That if a claim is put in for defaulters, the GNC would take a share of the amount paid.
• There is also a $9.00 monthly internet subscription that the council is working on for members of the community.
• Monthly or bimonthly Health Screenings for members of the community are also being planned for members of the community to help in the prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases.
• The Ghana House or Ghana community center is high on the agenda.
• Other items on his agenda includes, support businesses to upgrade their technology, assist in immigration procedure and processes such as filing for the Green Card Lottery , other immigration issues and avail Western Union scholarship programs for immigrants to the community.
President Nsiah concluded by asking members of the Ghanaian community to support the GNC financially so that together we can achieve the goals set forth by the GNC. Sankofaonline.com appeal to members of the Ghanaian Community to support the laudable goals of the GNC by patronizing their events and programs.
