PPP's Campaign Manifesto for Assin Central
Elections 2012 – Ghana
Candidate for MP of Assin Central: ROSINA AKOURKOR TEYE
In this world, we wouldn’t feel, as so many of us do, that what happens around the world is somehow less real than what happens on our doorstep. We’d feel a sense of empowerment, that we’re all in this together, and that our choices really can change the direction the world moves in.
Global communication technologies now mean that we all know that millions of people are living without access to the basics. The suffering of a child in a community in ASSIN CENTRAL ought to be as abhorrent to us as the suffering of a child next door. From this starting point of connection, we might then naturally move on to ask the question we’d naturally ask if it were our friend in trouble: What can I do?
“If you think you’re too small to make a difference,
you’ve never been in bed with a mosquito.”
Your personal choices and actions make a difference. In our interconnected world, your actions and choices, and the actions and choices of the institutions and governments you choose to support (or not), will affect the lives of people both close to home and further afield.
“From a state of powerlessness that manifests itself
in a feeling of ‘I cannot’, activism contains an element
of collective self-confidence that results in a feeling
of ‘we can.’”
The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is the new political party that has been formed by the 2008 flag bearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom
The motto of the PPP is “Prosperity in Peace. ” Its symbols consist of a full glowing red sun on a white background with red and white as its official colors

There is an old proverb which says "To understand something you need KNOWLEDGE, but to feel it, you need EXPIRIENCE".I have been with you all this time around for a while, and many knew me well what commitments has been done and how did I work humbly and serviceably through my little NGO (Dolly Foundation).
Some years back until now it has been a pleasure to feel your needs and tried to solve as many
