My foundation known as Tatas and Friends Foundation has been working tirelessly for 5years to touch as many lives as possible. We are known for our popular fundraiser “KENKEY FOR THE NEEDY” which is now one of the events people look forward to in Ghana.”
Furthermore, we found out that the event seeks to change the normal way of raising funds in Ghana. Food brings people together so they chose “Kenkey” a staple food mostly eaten by the Ga Tribe in Ghana. During the event, they bring their donors under one umbrella once every year to eat whiles proceeds from sales solves an educational problem one school at a time. The last one saw them raising over GHC30, 000 as their aim is put up a three classroom block for a rural area.
