Accra, April 19, GNA - Inspiring Youth Achievement (INSPYA) Ghana and Starting Now Ghana, both non-governmental organisations, have partnered to entertain children at the Hope Faith Orphanage Home in Accra to commemorate the Easter holiday.
The event saw children from the Haatso based orphanage being entertained, educated, given food, drinks and presented with study materials on a day dubbed; “edutainment fair”.
In an interview with Ghana News Agency (GNA), Mr Fred Nyame, the Marketing Director of INSPYA Ghana, said they sought to bridge the gap between rural and urban areas in terms of quality education.
“We are focused on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Four, which talks about quality education, improving people’s lives and sustainable development.
“In our close to three years of operations aimed at sustaining communities we visit, we have put together an initiative called the INSPYA Train, which is aimed at mentoring, coaching, and donating to deprived communities across Ghana,” he said.
Mr Nyame said the nationwide project would also include health screening and workshops which would not be for the children alone but the entire community.
Mr Strive Kakraba, the Chief Executive Officer of Starting Now Ghana, commended INSPYA Ghana for making it possible for both NGO’s to pool resources together to make the event a success.
“Both Starting Now and INSPYA Ghana came together to have fun, educate and bring hope to the children at the Hope Faith Orphanage on Easter holiday.
“INSPYA and Starting Now Ghana are two groups who are involved in similar activities…the entire team from starting now would like to acknowledge the effort from INSPYA, which is a laudable project.
Mr Kakraba said though it was not easy having humanitarian and volunteering heart, the team from both NGO’s had worked tirelessly to make the day a success.
He urged Ghanaians to give from the little they have to support the needy and vulnerable in society.
Both NGO’s are made up friends, families and individuals, who take delight in sharing the little they have with the less fortunate.
