TV host Afia Schwarzennegar will on Valentine’s Day February 14, which also happens to be her birthday, put together a fund-raising dinner at the Cahaya Lounge in East Legon, to raise funds for some orphanages.
Schwarzenegger’s charity foundation Owontaa Foundation under the auspices of the Association of Children’s Homes and Orphanages Ghana (ACHO-Ghana) is organizing the dinner to also give brilliant but needy children across various orphanages in the country, educational scholarship.
“I often hear or see companies and individuals donate and support various orphanages with money, food, drinks and other physical materials and I commend any group or individuals who have supported the less privileged in our society but I believe we should also think of giving them something that will impact on their lives and give them a lifetime gift which is education”, she’s said.
“Education,” she says “is the only gift we can give these children to assure them a better future and make them responsible people in our society.
“So am calling on all companies, philanthropists, NGOs, groups and individual who have the desire to put smiles on the faces of these less provided children to come let’s dine and wine, dance and contribute to a worthy national course”.
Afia Schwarzenegger and the Association of Children’s Homes and Orphanages- Ghana (ACHO-Ghana) will officially launch the Ghana Orphans Educational Fund on the same night, to manage and administer all the finances raised.
Special side attraction on the night will include performances from musicians Kofi Nti, Samini, Kwaw Kese, and Mzbel among a host of others.
