is at a crossroads. We have the
opportunity to create miracles or chaos. It
takes vision, love, commitment, courage, community and action to create
miracles. Achee is creating
miracles through building centers of transformation and peace as well as
ecological villages (eco-villages).
Achee's mission is to create
transformation, peace, love and sustainability throughout the world via
establishing centers and environments of light that function locally and
globally. We present cultural
events, seminars and forums, music and ceremony, and we initiate communication
in all aspects of life. We honor
women, men, children, all living beings, the planet and environment, all living
beings, celebrating diversity within the unity of all.
We acknowledge that everything is part of a greater mosaic -- physically,
mentally, emotionally and spiritually -- than any of us can imagine.
In the aftermath of the
brutality of the September 11, 2001, debacle, it is clear that “Achee”
(Pocket of Peace) centers of transformation and culture are needed globally and
would benefit people everywhere. Achee
is committed to peaceful conflict resolution.
This goes beyond the absence of violence and war.
The power of peace, the strength of peace, the outcomes of negotiations
done with peace as the intended outcome, this is what the world and her
citizenry yearn for. This is what
Achee and the Achee Light Center, as well as the eco-villages, eco-towns,
eco-cities Achee intends, can provide. Now is the time.
Achee is one of the modes of teaching, learning, sharing, being, doing
and having to create this alive and well on our beautiful planet.
Africa is a beautiful
continent, populated with wonderful creative brilliant people. The earth is rich. It
is time to honor and treasure this exquisite land, and give back what has
previously been taken. Africa is
one of the vortices blossoming on Earth at this time.
Achee is an aspect of this rebirth and renaissance.
Achee is birthing the Achee Light Center in the Republic of Benin, West
Africa, and a school in our adopted village, Akim Anyinase, Ghana.
The Akim Anyinase community has requested that we help them build a
school for women and an herbal clinic, and bring them electricity and drainage,
as well as other necessities. We
intend this as our first prototype of an ecological village.
In the midst of miracles, we create beautiful Pockets of Peace and
collaborations worldwide. Achee-Benin
ONG is our nongovernmental organization (NGO) in Benin.
We are affiliated with the Mothers Social Club, a UN-recognized NGO in
Ghana. Through the Mothers Social
Club, the Achee chair was instooled (correct) as Queen Mother of Progress for
Young Women and Girls, known as Nana Aboagye-Antwi I.
The Achee Light Center is a
new start, the first of its kind that can be replicated in other areas under
other conditions, with changes as may be applicable due to factors as climate
and resources specific to different areas.
We are cleaning up our collective past to create newly, benefiting the
world. We intend to create eco-vilalges
that function in every country and environment in the world.
We can do this in cooperation with such organizations as the Findhorn
Foundation Community, A Culture for Peace, the Foundation for Ethics and
Meaning, We the People, the Planetary Association for Clean Energy (PACE), the
Millennium People's Assembly Network, and World Citizens Foundation.
Achee is a nonprofit tax-exempt 501 (c ) (3) organization. We have 30 acres of property in Benin to construct the Achee Light Center. Akim Anyinase is slated to be our first eco-village. This is a global and local enterprise, and Achee welcomes your participation.
We present cultural events, seminars and forums, music and ceremony. We initiate communication in all aspects of life. We honor women, men, children, all living beings. We love the planet and our environment. We celebrate diversity within the unity of all. We acknowledge that everything is part of a greater mosaic -- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually -- than any of us can imagine. Now is the time.
Thank you, and many blessings.
