Update – Ahaban Educational Fund

The Ahaban Educational Fund was launched in March of 2016 to sponsor the education of underprivileged kids who show promise in academics, or vocational skills. In June of 2016, Ahaban took up the sponsorship for the education of 5 kids in the Akropong area. 4 girls and 1 boy. We paid for their first term tuition fees  for the 2016/2017 Academic year.

By December of 2016, 4 of the 5 children had relocated with their families to other towns, leaving just one of the sponsored kids in the Akropong area.

Our project coordinator, Mr. Lawrence Takyi Adams paid a visit to the town to meet with our affiliate Mr Isaac Kumi. Isaac looks out for under privileged but brilliant kids in Aprede (Eastern Region) who need help with their education. He also trains the kids in IT and basic computer skills. Together they identified 5 other children from Kindergarten to Primary 6 levels who qualify for our educational sponsorship program.

The donation which forms part of Latex Foam’s corporate social responsibility projects for the year 2016, was in response to a call from Ahaban GLF to help support the expansion of Teshie Orphanage to their new site by providing student mattresses for the orphans housed there. For Ahaban Foundation, which has the mission of promoting the welfare, education and development of children, the project was part of their Green Christmas initiative to spread the joy of the Christmas season with the less privileged.

 

The donation was made on Saturday the 3rd of December at the Teshie Orphanage Home premises at Teshie. Presenting the mattresses on behalf of Latex & Ahaban, the project coordinator Ms. Awere Ampem noted that they hoped the donation would go a long way to aid the orphanage, ensuring that the children sleep and rest comfortably on Latex Foam mattresses. She also lauded the caretakers on the great work they’ve done in 2016 and encouraged them to continue, ensuring the that Ahaban GLF and Latex Foam Ltd will always be ready to support them in future projects.
