The Food for People (FFP) program provides nutritious meals, clean water, and educational opportunities to impoverished communities. One of these communities is the small town of Otinibi, in the Greater Accra region of Ghana, where the FFP facility provides an average of 13,000 nourishing meals every month to children and elderly residents in need.

In this short new video clip, Otinibi Chief Niadjekwei Jamansah expresses his great appreciation for the program, which has improved health, school achievement, and the local economy.

“Let me take this opportunity to thank Prem Rawat and the donors who—out of their sweat—contribute monies to sustain this facility,” he says. “This facility is so important to us because it helps our children and the elders in our society.”

I am Niadjekwei Jamansah, the chief of Otinibi. Let me take this opportunity to thank Prem Rawat and the donors who—out of their sweat— contribute monies to sustain this facility. This facility is so important to us because it helps our children and the elders in our society.

 

We say that… We did not force, but out of your own volition, you’ve been able to give us this facility. What we are telling them is that we, the people within this community, will make sure that we take care of it, maintain the place, keep it up like this, so that they will not be disappointed. And we will not disappoint them. That is an assurance that we, or I, and the people of Otinibi, and all those who benefit from this facility, are saying—that we thank them and we say in our local language, ‘thank you and bye-bye.’
