As in previous years, this year, on Saturday, September 17, I will be celebrating a birthday and also fundrsaising so that I can sponsor at least 10 children who attend the Akoma International Academy in Ghana.
I am happy to report that 3 children have already been taken care of: my very special girl, Grace Essibir, and 2 others who were sponsored due to the painting created by Reshada Pullen-Jireh at my 3.26.16 Annual Women's History Month event which was purchased by Run Munia. The annual scholarship is $400 per child so please know that every little bit counts, and helps.
On my trip last year to Ghana, I launched #EveryGirlCanGhana program and worked with 10 awesome young ladies: Grace Essibir, Christina Nyan, Ester Otto, Esther Amining, Genevieve Shackleford, Lovina, Abigail Mensah, Comfort Mensah, Joyce Gyekye, and Francesca Arthur, who all graduated from the program. In addition, I trained 3 interns (Benedicta Minlah, Rose Anugah and Esililian Abena who are now armed with the knowledge to train others.
