Farewell Message to the Fellows

18 Aug

Last day of Anam Rurban Design Workshop with several Fellows

The past is a ghost, the future is a dream, and all we ever have is now.  It is not where you are from, it’s where you are going, it’s not what you drive, it’s what drives you. It’s what is on you and in you, it’s not what you think, it’s what you know.

The Chife Foundation Rurban Design Workshop was is targeted at the youth of our community who have the zeal to serve humanity.  We were all  pleased to join together these 10 weeks in service to our community, Anam and our New City project.

The only shortcut to success is service. As you serve, you are sowing a seed, and there is power in this seed. What you sow is what you reap and more and it may not necessarily matter where you reap it, what matters is that you will reap what you sow. Therefore, we will all encourage you as you sow your seed of service here in Anam for the future of community.

The Chife Foundation gave us an opportunity to serve our fatherland and our community.  As we recall that just like yesterday that we set our foot on Ebenebe, the time has come once more for us to move on and bid farewell to Ogwuyo site.

I encourage us to keep in touch and to continue to think of ideas, projects and contribution that will expedite the Anam New City project. The New City is for us and the future will not forget us as we leave an indelible footprints.

Once again, we thank Dr Aloy and Gesare Chife for  the wonderful priviledge given to us to serve our communty. We promise to do more if such opportunity is given to us in the future.
