In March 2007 “Yaw” Frederick L. Davis, a founding director of the Pan African Technical Association traveled to Ghana West Africa, on a humanitarian mission.
Yaw and those whom accompanied him on the mission initiated construction/renovation to the Oly Dade compound in Kpone, Ghana. The West African Country of Ghana is located on the Atlantic Coast of Africa. Ghana is located just above the equator at latitude of 5 degrees and has a population of 20,000,000 people.
The Oly Dade compound is being converted into the Mary Mason and Joe C. Davis Multipurpose Center and Village Retreat to improve literacy by providing Educational and Training tools and facilities for the children and people of the village of Kpone Ghana.
The Center is in the honor of the late Mary Mason and Joe C. Davis (Yaw’s father), whom dedicated their efforts and money to provide education and life improvement opportunities for the community of Kpone.
The average annual income per person is $276. With such a low income per person it is almost impossible for the average citizen of Ghana to invest in educational tools such as computers. There is a great need to fund projects such as the Mary Mason and Joe C. Davis Multipurpose Center.
Additionally to breaking ground on the construction, Yaw and his associates delivered school supplies, some of which were contributed by KRST Unity Center of African Spiritual Science in Los Angeles and by members of the Los Angeles community.
