Next Generation

There are several definitions of dream, but today let’s take a look at only one. Only one, because our purpose is: to direct or redirect the effort needed to accomplish a goal. What we are focusing on, is the meaning of dream as a strongly desired goal or purpose. The type of goal that you will not give up, and even if you slow down a little, is still well worth time and energy.

There are as many dreams as there are people in this world. Be that as it may, one dream is not better than the other. Hopefully however, your dream though equally important, will leave a legacy and continue for generations to come.

In the light of this plan for continuity, there is a music concert coming up in the Ghanaian capital of Accra. It will take place on Saturday March 22, 2014.

This is a concert to raise awareness of the situation of children. With awareness comes commitment and with commitment comes action.

Whether son or daughter, all children are important.

We also know that children can be strongly influenced by other people or state of affairs. It is incumbent on society then to put its best into the equation of their lives.

One of the best societies have to offer is music. The creativeness of musicians is not in doubt, and they can move the soul and spirit into action. As to whether one type of music is better than another, I’ll leave that for you to decide. Music like anything else should however, add a benefit to your life rather than create an atmosphere where your life is in jeopardy.

I spoke to Nana Adwoa Ackom-Mensah, the Dream Child Foundation Ambassador/Fundraiser. I asked her: “There is so much to do, how do you choose projects to sponsor.”

She replied: “The Dream! Child Foundation raises funds for institutions that help in the betterment of education, health or any positive growth of the children of Ghana and Africa on the whole. In 2012, the Foundation raised funds for the Children’s ward at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and in May 2013 raised funds for the children in Apam. These same children later came to the Scratch Studios to record a remix of Osibisa’s “Happy Children.”

“In March 2014, Dream! Child Foundation will be holding its third Concert to raise funds for the Orphan Aid Africa, which is based in Dodowa, Ghana.”

Awesome!

The Ambassador is looking forward to hang out with us in Accra.
