Habib Khalid, a representative for DUNK NGO, has expressed his gratitude to the French Embassy and the traditional authority of Agege after their latest project in the suburb of Accra.
Dunk, an NGO birthed seven years ago under a mango tree in Accra – Nima – by a group of young students and graduates who wanted to give something back to the community.
Employing sports – Basketball – as an agent of change, the organization seeks to empower children, youth and girls to become the agent of change in their own communities to make informed decisions and most of all to pursue education and have access to leisure.
Speaking to the public at the unveiling of their new project – library – in Agege, Mr Mohammed Tahir said:
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the chiefs of this community for welcoming us with open arms and also to the French embassy for believing in our project beyond the goal post”
He charged the community to make sure the project fulfills the purpose for which it was established.
“To this amazing community we would like to say we are not here as saviours.
“The development of this community lies in your wonderful hands and we can only influence that.
“We hope to achieve greater things together” he concluded.
