Ehiawoanwu, a small town in the Eastern Region in the Atiwa East Constituency, needs developmental projects and social amenities such as jobs, portable water, KVIP, just to mention a few.
Ehiawoanwu, literally means don’t die or kill yourself when you are poor, is a small town which came into existence in the year 1920, when their forefathers bought the land from the then Okyenehene, Nana Sir Ofori Attah.
Since 1963, Ehiawoanwu, has suffered from lack of developmental projects.
There are no good roads leading to the town and also no electricity. This has stunted development in the town.
A school which was built for them in 1963 to help in the education of the people, has turned out to be a white elephant, due to the unavailability of electricity in the area.
Teachers transferred to the village, run away because they can’t cope with the situation.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Atiwa East Constituency, Abena Osei Asare, has brought joy to the people of Ehiawoanwu on March 1, 2019 when she launched electricity in the town.
The town can now boast of good road, electricity and an ongoing construction of a six unit classroom block.
The people of Ehiawoamwu, is appealing to well-meaning Ghanaians and organization, to come to the aid of the town to help the youth be able to do something meaningful with their lives.
The people of Ehiawoanwu are grateful to their MP and the government for extending devopment to the town
They appeal for more projects to be undertaken to help in the development of the town.
