ADK Consortium, a professional team of architects, quantity surveyors, civil and service engineers, specialists in infrastructure development has announced its readiness to support the underprivileged persons in society on an annual basis.

As part of the group’s plans for the year, the company will officially launch “The ADK Gifts of Hope Project” and will explore strategic ways of reaching out to more people to make a meaningful impact on their lives.

The scope of the project will also be expanded to include supporting the trade and careers of deserving individuals in addition to donations to orphanages and hospitals.

In an interaction with a section of the media on the groups’ plan for the 2017 financial year,  Chairman of ADK Consortium Ing. Michael Krakue, outlined the group’s corporate social investment plan for 2017.  

“Last December, we demonstrated the true meaning of Christmas through our series of donations as part of an initiative dubbed as  ADK Gifts of Hope Project. It was a life changing experience not only for the beneficiaries, but for members of ADK Consortium as well who saw how our support touched the lives of people”, he said. 

 Project

Last year, a team from ADK Consortium led by Project Administrator, Frimpomaa A. Ayim and Human Resources Manager, Marklina Dadzie, commenced the project with a visit to the children’s ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital where they donated assorted items such as bags of rice, gallons of soyabean oil, boxes of biscuits, cartons of milo and powdered milk, and detergents.

The team later proceeded to the Potters Village Orphanage, at Dodowa where they also donated similar items to the orphanage. 

After the donation, the children entertained the team with choreography performances and songs to express their joy and gratitude for the kind gesture. 

The team encouraged the children to think positive about their future and not to allow their environment to affect them negatively. 

Management of company has expressed its commitment to the annual charity project and say they   believe that the needy and underprivileged children in society could have a bright future if given the needed support and assistance.
