Event Details

 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.  

See the album HERE.

I am inviting you to come and celebrate the joys of giving bLack and a safe journey to Ghana with me on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
