Frantomapa organises concert in aid of deprived basic schools
A non-governmental organisation, Frantomapa Educational Aid, is organising a gospel music concert to help support some basic schools in the country.
According to the Founder, Selina Agyei, their cause is borne out of the dangers that come with pupils studying under deplorable and life threatening conditions.
“In January, 2017, there was a terrible incidence of some innocent kids of Breman Jamera Methodist School losing their lives to a death trap school building which collapsed on them one morning when they settled down in the class to learn. I’m not sure anybody would wish this would happen to even his or her enemies but the truth of the matter is, if care is not taken, we might witness such unpleasant news again,” she told Citi Showbiz.
According to Selina, there are hundreds of such school buildings in Ghana which are putting the lives of about thousands of innocent kids in danger.
“From all indication, it looks like all attention of the Government has been shifted to S.H.S for some time now and the Basic schools have been left to their faith. This is why we have decided to contribute our quota to the development of our country Ghana by organising a Charity Concert to help raise funds to renovate or rebuild such school buildings,” she added.
She further stated that proceeds from the concert will be used to support Tinkong Presbyterian basic school in the Akuapem-North Municipality of the Eastern Region. They will be doing this yearly, and will choose a different school each year as beneficiary of the initiative.
The concert takes place at the Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry in North-Legon in Accra on 1st October, 2017. Artistes gracing the occasion are Matilda Agyemang, Patience Nyarko, Rose Adjei, Bismark Takyi, Ahuofe Patri and Gloria Sarfo.
Already, Frantomapa Educational Aid has been around a couple of basic schools to lend their support to the pupils.
They have in the past, presented educational materials to deprived schools, given pupils scholarships and organised quizzes for them.
