Lady1 Foundation has successfully had its maiden Charity Offer at the Aggreso M/A Basic School in the Western Region of Ghana.
Lady1 Foundation, which was formed by one of Ghana’s most promising Actress, Mary Awuni with a Showbiz name Lady 1, has embarked on this charity project to help support the less privileged children in the Western Region.
On 30th March, 2021, the Foundation donated learning materials, toiletries and other items to students and the entire Aggreso M/A Basic School.
Speaking in an interview after the donation, Mary Awuni said the Foundation intends to do more of such donations to impact positively on the lives of the less privileged in society.
She said, Lady 1 Foundation is a Non-Governmental organization (NGO) which has focuses on building the educational capacity of children in deprived communities across the country.
According to her, the Aggreso M/A Basic School project is their maiden edition and hopes to do more not only in the Western Region but also across other regions of Ghana.
The project according to Mary Awuni, Founder of Lady 1 Foundation, is the Foundation’s efforts in supporting government’s energies in achieving quality education in Ghana, especially in less deprived communities.
She said, it is not the duty of government alone to provide for its citizens and that it is also part of one’s Godly duty to give to the poor and the underprivileged and called on other like-minded individuals and organizations to support others.
She said, “Thousands of children, women and youths around the globe are faced with many harsh realities that undermine their growth and ability to learn and become useful in the communities they live in. Child trafficking, child labour, violence, loss of family, war, abuse, poverty and illiteracy are some of the plagues that affect them in their daily lives. It is time the privileged extend a helping hand to these people especially children for they are the future.”
“Indeed, we sought for support for this project and we were privileged to get some support from other individuals. Your support helped us to provide these educational materials to these deprived children. We say thank you.”
Receiving the items, Headmaster of the school, George O. Mensah expressed gratitude to the Foundation for the gesture.
He said, the donation will go a long way in helping with teaching and learning in the school.
He also promised to ensure that students take proper care of the items donated to them so as to enhance their learning.
