Community Based Consensus Driven Approach.


I had the Opportunity to be the Project Lead Consultant for KFC Ghana Covid 19 Donation in Kumasi,providing 2000 packs of hot meals to the needy.

Julius Nyerere of Tanzania's political philosophy was Ujamaa (meant brotherhood).It makes a lot of sense to me during these uncertain times as a youth.

We adapted and adopted the Community based consensus driven approach .

It would not have been possible without Eco Warriors,Ashanti Regional Scout,International Model Diplomats for Integrated Development and Smart Stars.
If you want to help the people you go to where they are and not to cluster them defeating the purpose of the social distancing.
