Kobina Boni, the Artistic Director of Abajo Band, has collaborated with the management of Street Academy to donate over 300 packs of food to children affected by the recent fire outbreak at the Arts Centre.
“I hope that this gesture goes a long way to improve the livelihoods of the beneficiaries,” he said and called on other philanthropists to support vulnerable children.
Mr Ataa Lartey, the CEO of Street Academy, commended Mr Boni for his generosity, stating that the welfare of children is the responsibility of all.
“The generous donation made by Mr Kobina Boni is an inspiring example of the impact that individuals can have on their communities, and it is hoped that his call for others to join in will be answered,” he added.
Some of the beneficiaries expressed gratitude for the gesture, while Street Academy reiterated its commitment to providing an alternative school curriculum for under-resourced and underprivileged children, rooted in informal academic teachings, sports, music, and arts.
