On Saturday the 13th of April 2019, the Rotary clubs of Accra-Spintex, Tema, Tema-Meridian, Tema-Sakumono, Rotaract Club of Regional Maritime, together with the fishermen of Sakumono, with sponsorship from Zoomlion Ghana Ltd, and support from Decathlon, cleaned the Sakumono beach christened “Titanic Beach”.
Objective: One of the core areas of action of Rotary International, an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring
together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world is Sanitation.
Titanic Beach used by the fishermen and many beach lovers, especially at weekends, has become so dirty that the fishermen fish more rubbish in their nets than fish. (As indicated in the picture below). This is affecting their livelihood. Rotary Clubs and the Rotaract club mentioned above in their quest to improve the community has taken upon itself to help improve the environment the fishermen work in, and by so doing, the fishermen would have more fish in their nets than rubbish, and thus help alleviate poverty and improve on their livelihoods.
A clean beach gives also the opportunity of beach lovers to enjoy their recreation in pleasant environments.
