- Bright Appiah has said that his outfit is in the business of supporting a lot of children
- According to him, it was not in their place to show off their achievements in public
- He was reacting to widespread concerns and claims going round that his outfit was a 'white elephant'
The now-popular Executive Director of Child Rights International (CRI), Bright Appiah, has jabbed his outfit's critics and said that they do a lot to alleviate people's suffering.
Mr Bright Appiah, while granting a one-on-one interview with celebrated Ghanaian blogger, Zionfelix, indicated that CRI was doing a lot for the less-privileged, especially kids.
He said his outfit was into child rights protection and has worked on many cases to protect children from being exposed to any form of harm.
He also indicated that they had a scholarship scheme that saw to it that many children explored their right to education to the fullest.
Bright Appiah went on to say that it was against their nature to make noise about all the interventions they have done.
He said it was the basic responsibility of Child Rights International to provide care for the vulnerable in society.
According to him, his intervention has got many parents to open investment accounts for their kids which they would hand over to the kids when they turn 18 years.
He added that they did not make their cases public because of how delicate the issues are and the fact that they want to protect the identity and integrity of those involved.
