Achee (Ah shayh’)
adapted from Nigeria’s
the Creator’s blessings, light, and love.
Humanity 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.
