Kantanku Global Foundation supports Akropong School for the Blind and the Atoklokpota community
The Kantanku Global Foundation has donated assorted clothing and footwear to students of the Akropong School for the Blind at Akropong in the Akuapem North Municipality of the Eastern Region.
The NGO also made the same donation to a marginalized community at Atoklokpota in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region region.
The donations were made on August 4 2023 and September 5, 2023 respectively.
The donations form part of the Foundation’s quest to help society address the pressing challenges facing the less privileged and to promote a more compassionate and community-focused world to model the value of generosity and selflessness in an enabling environment.
To create lasting change and a legacy of kindness for a better society, the Global Executive Director of the Foundation, Mr. Emmauel Nana Marfo, said there are still many marginalized people around the globe who are in dire need of alms, which calls for urgent attention.
He stressed on Kantanku Global Foundation’s commitment to identifying and touching some one million lives within a period of two years and is expecting to extend its charity work to other parts of the world.
Mr. Marfo said the blind are the most vulnerable persons in the world, with numerous challenges that call for urgent attention, and called on donors to assist the Foundation in addressing their needs, especially those of the students of Akropong School for the Blind in Ghana.
Mr. Joseph Sowu, a teacher and chairperson of the school’s donation committee, receiving the items on behalf of the Akropong School for the Blind expressed gratitude to the Foundation for its donation, adding that the philanthropic act came at the right time.
He appealed to the foundation to assist in addressing other pressing issues of the school including the lack of teaching and learning aids such as the projector, braille sheet, handframe, stylos, and curtains to secure the dormitories from the sun and to secure the students privacy when changing and dressing up.
Meanwhile, in the Volta Region, the Assemblymember for the Atoklokpota community thanked the foundation for the gesture, it was the first of its kind. According to him, the community has no productive economic venture to boost their socio-economic living condition, which has caused the residents to become impoverished.
He appealed for more support to help lift the indigenes out of poverty while safeguarding their health and promoting the education of children in the area.
