Offcanvas Section

You can publish whatever you want in the Offcanvas Section. It can be any module or particle.

By default, the available module positions are offcanvas-a and offcanvas-b but you can add as many module positions as you want from the Layout Manager.

You can also add the hidden-phone module class suffix to your modules so they do not appear in the Offcanvas Section when the site is loaded on a mobile device.

The Methodist Church Ghana in 2006 as part of her moral duty and social action set up The Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village at Gyaahadze. This was necessitated after the realization that children from Winneba and its environs were given out to fishermen from Afram Plains Donkokrom and its adjourning towns due to financial constraints borne by the parents of the children. These Parents gave their children out upon having been given a firm promise that they would be sent to school and that maximum care would be given them. Much to the contrary, the fishermen upon having them in their custody sent the children out for fishing and would as a result be exposed to all sort of risks and unhealthy conditions detrimental to their wellbeing. The sad news was that when these children were trapped in the lake and died, the fishermen used them as bait to attract fish.

The above revelations stunned the Most Rev Dr. Robert Kwesi Aboagye-Mensah and his team who were on a visit to the Afram Plains Mission Circuit of the Methodist Church Ghana. Upon assuming office as the Presiding Bishop, Most Rev Aboagye-Mensah embarked on Diocesan visits to the Dioceses within the Methodist Connexion in Ghana. The first of such visits was to Koforidua Diocese in the first week of February 2004. The then Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev (Dr.) Emmanuel G L Twum-Baah put together a small group that would take the Presiding Bishop round the Diocese. The group included the following Rev (Dr.) Isaac Nana Abekah (Supt. Minister, Aburi); (Rt.) Rev Christopher N. Andam (Synod Secretary); Very Rev William A. Mpere-Gyekye (Supt. Minister, Koforidua) and Very Rev Seth Afful Sackey (Supt. Minister Akuase). It was this group, led by Bishop Twum-Baah that took Most Rev, Robert Aboagye-Mensah to Donkokrom and decided to make it to the lakeside to see the work of the fisher folks. The group’s interactions with an NGO based along the road to the lakeside brought about this horrific and inhumane treatment these unfortunate children go through in the hands of their so-called benefactors.

The response then was for the church to build an orphanage or a village where such children when intercepted are sent to for care and nurturing. That they are provided with shelter, food, clothing, education and everything that would help them live a fulfilled life and become productive to their families, societies and the nation at large. This the Most Rev Robert Aboagye-Mensah resolved to see its birth and development. Initially the Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village was to setup at Maamekrobo in the Afram Plains Mission Circuit. The Rt. Rev Twum-Baah made land available there for the project which was inspected by Rafiki Foundation Inc. who were to partner the church to setup the village. The Rafiki Foundation Inc. upon further consultation with the Church later agreed that Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village be built at Gyaahadze near Winneba when Rt. Rev Jerimiah Morrison, the then Bishop of Winneba Diocese worked hard to secure the “Rafiki Land” through a kind donation of a 20 acre land by Nana Heitey, the Chief of Gyaahadze
