The project team travelled from the headquarters in Accra, Ghana to the future Anam City site in Anambra State, Nigeria this week to present developments in the new city project.
Led by Dr. & Mrs. Chife, the first community presentation was in Igbo & English and detailed the preliminary research and sustainability analysis (SWOT) to the community and Elders.
The presentation took place in Otuocha and was attended by over 100 members mainly of the Umuoba Anam community in the local illu (public square). The attendants, which included the full spectrum of residents from young children to Elders, men and women, received the presentation with interest and enthusiasm. The Elders in particular communicated their eagerness to see the project move forward as soon as possible following several months of discussion.
In addition to continued site surveying on the first phase site (Ebenebe), the team also traveled to surrounding settlements in the region to meet with the elders and members of other Anam communities in order to promote a city-regional development program and continued partnerships.
