Father Simon Kwaku Wiredu breaks first ground at Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei International Center Begins Construction

Bekwai, Ghana (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

The center, along with being the head office of the Edusei Foundation, will also be used for other commercial activities to help boost the development of the rural areas. The location is in line with an effective developmental adage of decentralization, a bottom up approach to development with special emphasis on the rural areas.

The International Center consist of a huge multipurpose conference Hall, computer labs, library, museum, seminar auditoriums with full audiovisual equipments, twelve class rooms, and science laboratories. There will be thirty hotel rooms, each with baths and other amenities. Multiple stores and a restaurant will be erected in order to help create an ideal milieu for our goals. Hundreds of jobs will be created as a result of the international center's existence.

The center represents a heeding by Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei of a UNICEF report from a comprehensive study called Generation 2030/Africa published in August of 2014. The report estimates that the children population in Africa will increase by 75% to one billion by 2050. The clarion call made by that UNICEF report to better prepare the continent's youth falls in line with the Edusei Foundation's mission of fostering positive thinking among the youth.

Construction work has already begun less than a week after the sword-cutting event, and will continue feverishly until completion anticipated to be around the summer of 2015 while the multipurpose conference center will be ready later in fall of 2015. A six acre land mass has also been acquired at Esumeja to provide a retreat to help in youth development and other activities.

The Edusei Foundation has already reached out and organized a number of Youth Workshops in cities across the globe including London, New York City, Hartford, Connecticut, Washington DC, and Toronto, Canada. Plans are in the advanced stages to hold its first Youth Workshop on Ghana’s soil in Kumasi this Fall.

At each of these Youth Workshops, the enthusiasm elicited among the attending youth, the positive feedback, and the encouraging galvanization that has engulfed the youth in those cities in the aftermath of the events all combined to inform the decision to build an international resource center. The goal is to further the ambitious mission of steering the youth towards positivity and empowering women and children.

Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei, using his own up-bring by parents who focused on positive thinking as testimony, is complete in his conviction that the negativity that ails Africa has been the bane of our developmental challenges. To combat the menace, the consumate diplomat and philathropist believes we must instill leadership and positive thinking in the lives of Africans while they are young. This will keep them positioned to take the mantle of leadership and development from our generation.

This enormous task of developing the youth has become the central focus of Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei's. He has thus declared his resolve to dedicate the remainder of his life as a private citizen to focus of building his business, developing the youth, and empowering women and children. The whole international center is sponsored by Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei and family. Dr Edusei will use his immense international experience to attract international and local experts to use the facilities. His hopes are that they can offer knowledge and help to empower the Ghanaian youth, the future of our nation.

The mission of the Edusei Foundation is to facilitate youth development in the United States, Ghana, and the Diaspora in a positive manner to improve their knowledge, behavior, and health. Moreover, they collaborate with other non-governmental organizations to empower women and children. The Eduesi Foundation often hosts youth workshops in order to further educate the world's youth.
