Street Academy patron donates food to vulnerable children

• Some of the packed food ready for dispatch

 Mr Kobina Boni, a Patron of Street Academy has donated over 300 packs of foods to children who were affected by a recent fire outbreak at the Arts Centre in Accra.

The donation was in collabo­ration with the management of Street Academy.

Mr Boni who is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Abajo Res­taurant, located at the Arts Centre said he was concerned about the plight of children at the Arts Centre because most of them came from poor homes.

He said the gesture would go a long way to improve the livelihood of the beneficiaries.

Mr Boni appealed to other phi­lanthropists to come on board to help the vulnerable children.

Mr Ataa Lartey, the Chief Execu­tive Officer (CEO), Street Academy, commended and thanked Mr Boni for the gesture.

He said the welfare of the chil­dren was the responsibility of all and, therefore, called on all stake­holders to commit more resources to protect poor and vulnerable children on the streets.

Some of the beneficiaries who spoke to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) expressed gratitude to the management of Street Academy for the food.

The Street Academy offers inclu­sive refuge for under-resourced and under-privileged children by provid­ing an alternative school curriculum rooted in informal academic teach­ings, sports, music and arts.

It is a three-year bridge pro­gramme preparing students for mainstream education, the pub­lic school system and vocational training.
