[bt_accordion width=”0″ active_first=”no” icon=”plus-circle”][bt_spoiler title=” THE KINGDOM CITY”]
Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation (CAF) is a non-profit organisation (NGO) englobed in The Kingdom City which is a complex of massive projects through local and outreach programmes, which will help alleviate the problems of the helpless, the destitute, the orphans and vulnerable children, the widows and their children, the elderly, the mentally disabled, the physically disabled including the deaf and the blind, students, patients and the public at large.
Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation (CAF) was founded by Dr. Emmanuel Yao Voado, MD. It was established in Ghana as a charitable Trust Deed duly registered on 21st February, 2014 at the Registrar-General’s Department in Accra with the registration number CG089012014. On 16th January, 2015 the Foundation’s name was changed from Mawuena Foundation to Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation (CAF).
Our vision is to extend a warm and delicate care for the helpless and the diseased to expand happiness: A world in which individuals, civil society groups, and the daily lives of people are freed of basic needs and diseases.
Our mission is to deliver the captives of destiny who will then rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the former devastations (poverty) of many generations.
We have started with medical outreaches to different communities in Ghana with our own resources and we are looking forward to Cosmopolitan Donors and Investors to come together and become a miracle in the lives of the helpless, the destitute, the poor, the weak, the diseased and vulnerable in our societies, helping them to accomplish their divine purpose-driven dreams, taking them from the category of “Mr. Nobody” to that of “Mr. Somebody”.
As coalition builders, in the effort of making our projects become auto-sustainable, we will work co-operatively with all individuals and groups, for profit and not for profit corporations and organisations, government agencies and international bodies committed to the fight to extend help to the needy, subject only to the policies and priorities set by our governing bodies.
We are calling on the aforementioned entities and groups to partner with us to make this dream, which is achievable, come to fruition. During this partnership, the profit of the joint venture will be shared between our foundation and our partners so that we can accomplish our mission of helping thousands of vulnerables to make it to stardom.
Sustainability: There is an accelerating deterioration of the human environment and natural resources and there are consequences of that deterioration for economic and social development.
The climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it. The alarm bells keep ringing. No nation is immune. Worldwide, the last summers were the hottest ever recorded, with global carbon emissions still on the rise. We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.
CAF has recognized that environmental problems are global in nature and has determined that it is the common interest of all nations to establish policies for sustainable development.
CAF believes in development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”
In all its dealings, CAF will participate in green engineering. The design, commercialization, and use of processes and products, which are feasible and economical while minimizing generation of pollution at the source and risk to human health and the environment.
The Kingdom City will be comprised of:
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 1. MIRACLE HOSPITALS”]
CAF will strive for a hospital where alternative medicine and the knowledge about dieting is taught to both medical students and patients.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 2. THE ORPHANS “]
From the Junior High School level, children who are medically fit will be thought the importance of manual work by making them appreciate farming in producing some of the products they themselves will consume. This will havethem go to the garden about two times a week for one hour. Their activities will include organoponics/hydroponics and fish farming.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 3. THE DISABLED “]
CAF will open different avenues for employment after their training:
- They will get access to micro-financing by the financial agencies of CAF to facilitate loans for them with business coaches on the ground to open their own start-up businesses.
- Lobby existing businesses to assure them a job upon leaving the vocational school.
- Open businesses in The Kingdom City which would give priority to their absorption after their education. Some of the businesses like the visual arts, footwear and furniture company which will form part of the schools they will attend, will be the same places they will be employed to teach their colleagues coming after them.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 4. MENTAL HEALTH”]
The centre will be encouraged to incorporate alternative medicine to the arsenal of treatments targeted towards the recovery of these patients if we take into account the wide range of dangerous side effects of the conventional drugs prescribed for these psychopathologies on chronic basis.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 5. THE ELDERLY”]
The home will be encouraged to incorporate alternative medicine to the arsenal of treatments targeted towards the recovery of this patients if we take into account the wide range of dangerous side effects of the conventional drugs for this age group.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 6. THE WIDOWS “]
The vocational empowerment centre will teach among other things, solar electrical engineering in a 6 month training programme to install, maintain and repair solar panels so that when they go back to their communities they could do so to enhance the socio-economic development of the immediate communities of influence by replicating the teaching of this technology to other women from neighbouring rural areas. This will address the issue of limited access to electricity by empowering rural communities with the skills to provide low-cost and sustainable electricity for themselves. Back in their home villages, each solar engineer can install one solar unit in at least 50 homes, providing each family with a fixed lamp, a bright solar lantern, an LED flashlight, and a plug for charging mobile phones. This will provide the communities with clean and renewable energy sources allowing for greater sustainability.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 7. OUTREACH TEAM”]
CAF has started with medical outreaches to different communities in Ghana with free health screening and plans to touch the lives of approximately 12,000 people in the year 2019. So far in our outreaches, 31% of the people knew for the very first time they were hypertensive and diabetic patients and 15% of the cases seen were diagnosed with malaria. Known chronic diseases were also treated. This marks the beginning of primary health care in a country where this preventive strategy of health care is non-existent. CAF strives to diagnose the disease in the early stages and treat it to avoid dealing with the complications which is a more cost-effective approach than the existing system of haphazard secondary/tertiary health care.
[/bt_spoiler][bt_spoiler title=” 8. THE UNIVERSITY”]
Sustainable development is a central element of the university’s mission
The university will instill in its students’ education for sustainable development learning how to achieve global and local sustainable communities to understand the complexities of, and synergies between, the issues threatening planetary sustainability and understand and access their own values and those of the society in which they live in the context of sustainability through:

In Africa, we have an abundance of wind and sun but contradictorily, we have power deficit. We need to invest in all renewable forms of energy including solar and wind energy. Solar and wind power are extremely scalable, as there are systems available from less than 1 watt to several megawatts. This makes it possible to initialize the electrification of a home or village with minimal initial capital. It also allows for dynamic and incremental scaling as load demands increases. The component configuration of a wind or solar installation also provides a level of functional redundancy, improving the reliability of the system. If a single panel in a multi panel solar array is damaged, the rest of the system continues functioning unimpeded. In a similar way, the failure of a single wind tower in a multi tower configuration does not cause a system level failure.
Because solar and wind projects produce power where it is used, they provide a safe, reliable and cost effective solution. Because transmission equipment is avoided, these systems are more secure, and less vulnerable to attack. This can be an important feature in regions prone to conflict. Wind and solar power systems are simple to set up, easy to operate, easy to repair, and durable. Wind resources and solar resource are abundant enough to provide all of the electrical energy requirements of rural populations, and this can be done in remote and otherwise fragmented low density areas that are impractical to address using conventional grid based systems.

The genes of those competitive muscles in Cuba, Jamaica and the United States are precisely genes brought from Africa. Why is it that Africa is lagging behind in sports competitions like baseball, basketball, football, athletics, and boxing, among others, where their African American brothers excel? We lack a structured policy to educate our children to practice and love sports. We do not premeditatedly plan to enrol our children from the early ages in sports activities with the hope of making them future champions. We do not have the system in place to stimulate the teaching of physical education and sports schools at all levels to achieve these Olympic ideals. There are inadequate number of sports facilities. We Africans like only soccer (known as football in Africa). We need to diversify our sports activities through a serious programme.

We lack the appropriate quantity and quality of sports facilities in Africa. This lack coupled with a deficient sports policy targeted towards the achievement of results has led to Africa not excelling internationally in sports events.
Our vision is to nurture and promote sustainability and sustainable development in all aspects of sports through providing high quality support, resources and events. We recognise sustainability in the broadest terms to include economic activity, environmental responsibility and social progress.
The objectives are:
• Bring the celebration of international sports events to Sub-Saharan Africa.
• To educate, share and develop best practice and integrate sustainable development into all aspects of the sport sector.
• To encourage and facilitate collaboration between all those interested in and concerned with sustainability and sport.
• To use the influence of sports to educate the public about sustainability issues.
CAF will deliver innovations that will be mainstreamed in the development of environmental management systems related to event planning and staging, innovations in design and construction, energy and waste management, preservation of water resources, transport infrastructure and ethical supply chains. CAF will strive for an ecological footprint of venue and infrastructure (permanent or temporary), together with athletes and spectators, which will be the key component of organising the sports events.
“Blending sport with culture and education, seeks to create a way of life based on the joy of effort, the educational value of good example, social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.” This sentiment echoes much that underlies sustainable development.
The following steps are going to be adhered to:
• Power will be generated by solar energy or stadium lighting to be LED lights.
• On site recycling will be utilized to the maximum effect.
• All paper products will be post-consumer recycled.
• All utensils and cookware will be corn-based compostable.
• Toilet tissue, soaps, paper towels, etc will be biodegradable.
• Post event meals will be only natural and/or organic.
• Coffees, teas and other beverages served will only be organic and fair trade.
• Our race packets will not be the typical plastic bags.
• Composting, recycling water and donating food waste
• Our goals are to minimize the waste and carbon footprint generated by our event.

CAF will use organic farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities and animal welfare while producing healthful food that does not compromise future generations to do the same, being true stewards of the land through:
1. Environmental preservation: producing crops and raising animals without relying on toxic chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified seeds or practices that degrade soil, water or other natural resources by using practices like:
a) crop rotation
b) conservation tillage
c) pasture-based livestock husbandry
These practices protect biodiversity and foster the development and maintenance of healthy ecosystems.
2. Protection of public health creating fruits and vegetables safer for consumers, raising animals without the use of nontherapeutic antibiotics or arsenic-based growth promoters and managing livestock wastes so that humans are protected from exposure to pathogens, toxins, and other hazardous pollutants.
3. Sustaining vibrant communities providing farmers with a liveable wage and safe and fair working conditions bolstering local and regional economies.
4. Upholding animal welfare, treating animals with care and respect guaranteeing their health and wellbeing.
Food processing division of CAF:
The food processing cluster is defined as a business that directly impacts the food processing supply chain. It entails growing of crops or raising livestock, manufacturing of agricultural or food processing equipment, processing of food, support of the process (producing labels, boxes, cans, bottles, etc.), and/or the selling of the finished product; often referred to as “Farm-to-Fork.”
CAF will practice sustainable manufacturing with the following corporate philosophies:
• Infrastructure will utilize “green practices”
• Develop “green energy park” concept
• Apply waste beneficial reuse concepts
• Match “Savor the Local” Culture with new products: We will deliver harvested- to- order organically grown produce to local chefs and consumers.

To challenge the dominant ways of thinking and behaving in the society, which have resulted in our present state of continental unsustainability, botanic gardens need to engage in stronger forms of education for sustainability.
