Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), in fulfilment of its pledge, donated an amount of GH¢10,000 in check to the Tourism Society of Ghana (TOSOGHA), on July 11, 2017. The donation is in support of budget allocation for activities of the tourism society of Ghana (TOSOGHA), as well as its partnership with the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service.
TOSOGHA, in collaboration with DOVVSU, under the auspices of the Greater Accra Police Command Unit in their new partnership, on Thursday June 29, launched a campaign to advocate against child abuse in the first and second cycle institutions in the country, with the pilot in the Greater Accra Region. The campaign was aimed at sensitising the youth on issues of violence and child related abuses.
Being the first religious body to declare support for TOSOGHA’S partnership, the leadership of Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI), made this donation to the tourism society of Ghana, for their good work, for God and country. In a statement, Apostle Joseph Sakyi, Director, Christian Education Unit of CACI, said that, the church is firm on giving a periodic support scheme for the smooth administration of TOSOGHA.
In a public discourse, Mr. Joseph Nii Amartey, Executive Director of TOSOGHA, emphasised on the Ghana Family Life and Health Survey (GFLHS 2015). The survey record, places domestic violence at the zenith. This remains a social factor, which unknowingly hampers productivity, and triggers under-development.
Against this disturbing background, Mr. Amartey disclosed, the partnership seeks the holistic involvement of the educational units, traditional councils, religious bodies, and potential stakeholders, towards effective and sufficient mobilisation, sensitisation, education and advocacy, to uproot the canker of all dimensions of domestic violence.
The partnership of TOSOGHA and DOVVSU, is a historic hallmark.
