Vodafone Ghana’s commitment to the cultural heritage of Ghana was in full swing during the just ended Asafotufiami festival by the Chiefs and people of the Ada traditional area.
The telecommunication company donated an amount of GH¢15,000 to reflect a commitment to deepen ties in the communities in which it operates. A cash amount of GH¢5,000 out of the total donation was presented to the Ada Traditional Council and GH¢ 10,000 was donated towards the various festivities.
The week-long festival, which ended on August 10 2017, was also to commemorate 80-years since the celebration was instituted by the Chiefs and people of the traditional area.
Commenting during the donation, Agnes Emefa Essah, Sales and Marketing Director at Vodafone Ghana said:
“This country has a wealth of rich tradition and cultural heritage and it’s always an honor to be part of this. We are a company that has deep roots in the history of this country and we see platforms like the Asafotufiami festival, as a perfect avenue to fully show our commitment.”
A representative of the Traditional council expressed deep appreciation to Vodafone for the gesture and was confident that the partnership will continue for years to come.
The Asafotufiami festival is an annual celebration of the people of Ada Traditional area in the Dangme East District, held in the first week of August. It usually attracts about three million people every year.
