Gospel musician Noble Nketsiah was recently in Rome as part of preparations towards his upcoming launch concert to raise funds and awareness for his ‘Kids-off-the-Street’ project.
The event seeks to entertain lovers of Ghanaian gospel music in Italy, whilst raising awareness and funds to support his project back home in Ghana. The Italy launch Concert which is fully endorsed and supported by the Ghana Embassy in Italy, Ghana National Associations in Italy, Italian Embassy in Ghana and the Ministry of Women and Children Affairs, primarily seeks to support Orphanages and Homes committed to taking care of underprivileged children removed from the streets of Ghana. Activities scheduled include:
- Media Briefing- September 23, 2017 at the Golden Eagles Global Ministries, Via Luigi Abbiati 18c, Fornaci (Brescia), Italy
- Main Concert– October 14, 2017 at the Maranatha Assemblies of God, Via Della Cascina Pontevica 40 25124 Folzano, Brescia
Both events, being organized in partnership with JabCrew and Assemblies of God, Ghana-Italy, is under the patronage of Her Excellency Paulina Tangoba Abayage, Ghana’s Ambassador to Italy.
So far, the project has identified and will be working in partnership with a number of orphanages including: Children’s Home of Hope at Asebu in the Central Region; Christ Faith Foster Home, Frafraha in the Greater Accra; and Anum Apapam Orphanage Home in Eastern Region. “In due course, other orphanages/Children Homes would be added as we grow resources of the project” says Noble.
Noble who recently released a worship song ‘Woye Owura’ has lined up a number of activities after this concert, including Ghana Launch Concert in December 2017 and a major event to celebrate the International Day for Street Children on April 12, 2018, in partnership with the Ministry of Women & Children Affairs among other partners.
“Street children are often ignored and stigmatized because they have no support, no family, school, healthcare; and face violence and hunger daily. Kids-Off-The-Street Project, is my Social Responsibility Project, launched alongside ‘My Vision’ album, to remove at least 1000 under-privileged children off the streets by 2020 and to give them a better place and care”, says Noble.
The said album was therefore dedicated to the project, where part of its proceeds was invested in creating some awareness for the project, including producing a theme song, Mmofra yi” (Our Children) to drive the campaign.
