As part of its social responsibility programmes, Trinity Spirit International (TSI) on Saturday, October 23, 2011, organised a night of interaction with the physically-challenged on the premises of Trinity Campus, at Mataheko, Accra.
The programme, dubbed ‘Project Agape’ and organised in collaboration with the university, provided a congenial atmosphere for a close fellowship with these loved ones who, though may include relations, friends, acquaintances or faces one often meets in the traffic, feel rejected by the larger society.
They were treated to food and drinks and went away with various gifts and happy feelings that they were, after all, not social outcasts, but bona fide members of the society with equal rights with their fellow citizens. Speaking at the occasion, Victor C. T. Ofinam-Antwi, Communications and Helps Desk Manager of the university, urged them not to bemoan their circumstances, but to exploit their individual talents and strengths to their advantage.
He observed that though the government, social organisations, or individuals may present them with wheel chairs, clutches and other interventions to make life more enjoyable for them, it is, invariably, in their power to reject self-pity and to translate what others give them into treasurers for improving their circumstances.
Speaking to the media after the programme, Mr. Ned Morgan, TSI president, said his group was moved by the love of God demonstrated through Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross for the sinner to do whatever it could practically, to win all people, regardless of their social backgrounds, for Christ.
Present at the occasion, among others, was Mrs. Florence Larbi, the University Counsellor.
