Gosanet Foundation was established in 2005 with the aims of contributing to the health, education and developmental needs of communities in Ghana.
Prior to the opening of the Goefe office, the NGO has been operating from its offices in Ho and Agortime Ziope.
Speaking at the inauguration of the office, Executive Director of Gosanet Foundation, Mr. Samuel Yao Atidzah said the opening of the office marked the beginning of life-changing moments for the community, as the foundation is poised to providing opportunities for people who live circumstances of social and economic deprivation.
He said its entry into the district was also aimed at enabling the Foundation to scale-up its proven interventions and to efficiently operate in the various communities to make the desired lasting improvement in the lives of the people.
He added that the community is at the heart of the NGOs strategic development projects, especially issues related to health and education, adding that Gosanet Foundation had made a remarkable impact in the lives of many in the Adaklu District who had been reached through its various health promotion activities.
Dufia of AdakluKodzobi, TogbuiDegblede IV applauded Gosanet Foundation for their efforts in improving lives of the people, especially in the areas of education, healthcare delivery and expressed the hope that its presence in the district would facilitate quality health care among rural communities.
He, however, used the opportunity and appealed to the Foundation to bring on board interventions that would improve and strengthen the socio-economic capacity of the vulnerable in the community so that poverty rate can be reduced.
On his part, Chief of AdakluGoefe, TogbuiSasraku III, expressed his outfit’s commitment and readiness to work hand-in-hand with the NGO and urged the management of Gosanet Foundation not to hesitate to knock at his doors for support in times of difficulties.
