Executive Director of ‘Press On Kids’, Mr. Worlanyo Afenyo has urged government of Ghana to create the right environment and opportunities for children to have less material needs and better growth in the fear of God.
Mr. Afenyo believes such encounter will inculcate useful virtues, discipline, patriotism and the fear of God in the children of today adding that, it will further make them responsible adults.
Speaking at the second edition of ‘Kids In Worship’ Concert over the weekend, he said, “There are certain things that come into our nation very subtly as if they’re for our welfare, but there is a hidden agenda which will not inure to the well being of our children, so government should guard against them for the sake of our future leaders”.
According to him, government angle of help will adhere to groom the children with biblical discipline, for them to grow into well cultured, faithful and nationalistic for the development of the country.
“We need a new generation with holistic training and the right attitude towards effective nation-building, to make an impact on our current society, and this could be done with the younger ones through the impact of proper training.
“Let’s make our children of today, worthy future leaders who would help transform Ghana, by harnessing the country’s natural and human resources,” he concluded.
‘Press On Kids’, he explains is an inter-denominational group of children who sing gospel by “putting picture to song” which involved taking memory verses and composing them into music for easy memorization and recollection of scripture.
The group is over ten years old and would be launching its latest album dubbed, “Sing the word” shortly.
The organisation has over 300 memory verse songs which were under recording for websites and television viewership so that parents could have alternatives as children.
‘Press On Kids’ is expected to be one of the ‘go to’ children groups in the nation and across the world and a training hub for children to develop their gifts and talents to the glory of God.
