Speaking with Michael Bonito far away from UK, chief coordinator of the newly founded NGO Planet Zero said the team has a big dream in making the world a better place for all human beings. “The main difficulty we face is always the question of how to raise funds to fulfil our charitable objectives. My team and I are all motivated by the fact that all human beings should be on a par and are determined to play our part in the fight to eradicate hunger and poverty. I can only speak for planet zero and not about other charities such as the “fight poverty” programme. It is our first charity programme in Ghana because we are a newly founded organization. Planet zero will definitely be coming to Ghana every year and even more if possible to embark on various projects. In future we will supply clothing, books, build schools, dig wells, supply solar panels and much more” he said.
