The Ghanaian Community in the Pittsburgh area have been commended by the Ambassador of the Republic of Ghana to the United States of America, His Excellency Dr. Barfour Adjei-Barwuah.
Speaking at the Annual Dinner Dance and Fundraising organized by the Ghanaian Association of Pittsburgh, Ambassador Adjei-Barwuah observed that having attended numerous Ghanaian events in America, children are often left in the house.
“… This is the second time I have been to a Ghanaian community [event], where people have consciously brought [their] children to the function and I want to congratulate you for that because most of the time, you leave the children [at] home,” this statement was met by loud applause and cheers from the patrons.
“So feel proud of yourself for being able to do that,” he ended when the applause subsided.
His Excellency also advised Ghanaians who are not members of the Association to register to be part and contribute to the growth of the Ghanaian Community in the Pittsburgh area.
He reechoed President Nana Akufo-Addo’s word that, they must not be spectators, instead they must be participants.
