Mr. Lenin Aboagye, a cyber security professional based in the United States, financed the building of a public washroom and toilet facility at Dansoman-Glefe as part of efforts to help address the problem of open defecation in the community. The facility which was complemented with a mechanized borehole water facility to provide constant water supply for its operation. The Throne Facility houses 16 pay-per-use public washrooms, 22 pay-per-use public toilets, an events centre and a supermarket. The events centre unit is expected to reduce the blocking of reads in Glefe by residents for use as social event venues
In remarks at the commissioning of the facility, Mr. Aboagye recalled his years growing up in the Dansoman community and noted it was right to give back to the community. He said residents of the community could use the non-profit facility at a nominal cost to raise revenue for maintaining the facility.
“My goal was to give back to Dansoman and I saw that this was a great need for them… The drive is to give hope to the youth and the younger generation. I want children to see the vision that good things can happen here so that they know that good things can happen to them as well.”
Queen-Mother of Glefe Naa Mostu Manye expressed gratitude to Mr. Aboagye and his family for providing the community with an important facility. Naa Mostu Manye was excited that after acquiring the land, Mr. Aboagye used it for a project that would benefit all residents of her community.
