WE CAN Foundation, a Ghanaian US-based charity organization will on Wednesday, 31st January, 2018 be launched at the Lilies of the Field Academy, Osu-Accra. Founded by Solomon Annin, the young Ghanaian who is a gospel minister, inspirational speaker, songwriter and a US Army personnel, the WE CAN campaign is a course to reach out to people in the rural  areas, peril-urban who are going through hardships. The foundation is focused on helping the less privileged ones in the Ghanaian and African society as a whole.

The donation event will be the first official project to be carried out by the foundation. It is also in a special way to mark the birthday of the founder and CEO, Private Min. Solomon Annin.

The venue of the event will be the Lilies of the Field Academy located at Osu in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The event will be graced by the presence of some young folks making impacts on the lives of the less privileged in Ghana and parts of Africa such as Marcus Anafu “ The Youngest Philanthropist in Africa”, Akakpo Elikem Kwabla, the Public Relations Officer of Love Foundation Club, Juana Boateng, Nana Kofi Appau and other young Ghanaians who are into charity.

The event is to serve as a kick-start for upcoming projects of the ‘We Can’ campaign. Few projects to follow up are the provision of educational materials for some rural area schools in Ghana, distribution of footwear to students living in deprived areas, granting of educational scholarships, among others.

“We Can” as the name of the foundation cum the campaign suggests the hope of these young Ghanaians both home and abroad who believe it is we ourselves that can help our motherland come out of her predicaments and afflictions. The ‘We Can’ campaign thus incites in all Ghanaians and Africans our individual roles in making this our world of fragile peace and broken promises, sicknesses, hunger, homelessness and streetism, poverty and death.

The launching will of the We Can Foundation at Lilies of the Field is to as part of the foundation’s mission put smile on the faces of the less privileged and afflicted. There will be donation of items ranging from assorted food items, academic materials, clothes and others. The event is supported greatly by Love Foundation Club. There is a heartfelt call to the general public to support the “We Can Campaign” through donations and volunteerism.

Solomon Ennin, the Young Ghanaian in the U.S Army Making the Country Proud Through Music and Philanthropy

The saying that “it is only the child that has never travelled that says her mom is the best cook” is very true and evident. Until we make explorations about our own story and worth, we will never discover who we are and what we have. An article recently found on a blog site in the States in profiling the top five young Ghanaians making Ghana proud featured a young Ghanaian in the US Army as number one.  Born in Ghana to Mr. Emmanuel Ennin and Mrs. Comfort Afrane Yeboah, young Solomon Ennin is now a Ghanaian US soldier who doubles as a musician. Solomon Ennin is an inspirational speaker, a song writer, a philanthropist and a musician based in the United States of America. We might have seen his likes but not his type because it is so hard and rare to come across a young Ghanaian who doubles as a musician and a soldier in the States.

Solomon was born at Tarkwa in the Western Region of Ghana. He attended the Columbus State Community College and the Ohio School for Phlebotomy. Solomon started music at a very tender age and his first song was a thanksgiving song which came to him one day as he was thinking on what he wants to do in life. Poverty which has shattered so many dreams in our country and the African continent nearly laid its hands on the dreams of Solomon as he went through some financial constraints and lack of good guidance that he had to endure.

After writing twenty five songs but could not record it then due to some financial constraints and guidance, Mr. Ennin started doing two different jobs at a time in other to save up some money to follow his dreams and aspirations. And like the stories of almost all upcoming musicians, Solomon lost his first chance to record after the studio said he couldn’t proceed with no legit reason, he then lost his appointment and the money paid wasn’t refunded back to him. God being so graceful, he recorded his first and second albums which were launched in August 2016. He has to his credit two music albums and a music video with the song titled “Higher” being his favourite of all. His album titled “Nsenku” was widely sold during and after the launch of the album and this got his fame to continue growing over the whole of US.

Mr. Ennin who is also known as Rhema Blessed is industrious and passionate about transforming lives and making impact through his ministry; the Rhema Ministry. The Rhema Blessed Ministries is geared toward “impacting the world with good, quality and Spirit-filled songs” which America is already witnessing. Having joined the US Army last year, Solomon hopes to extend more help to the less privileged in his home country through his ministry and through his partnership with Marcus Anafu “The Youngest CEO and Philanthropist in Ghana”.

Solomon is on a course to reach out to people in rural areas, peri-urban and the less privileged ones in Ghana through his “WE CAN” campaign.  Rhema Blessed believes that a simple act of kindness can cause a great impact and change in people’s lives. A young military man who is making waves in music in United States of America being a Ghanaian is in fact a blessing and a pride for Ghana as a country. Ghana has indeed found a young and talented young man who will carry up the mantle and change the face of music and ministry in Ghana and in other parts of the world. He is indeed our new artist and our new discovery.
