A UK-based non-governmental organization, Life Beacon International, has donated learning materials and food items to Christ Ambassadors School, a privately-owned basic school that caters freely for children within Oyarifa, in the Greater Accra region.
Associate of the Organization, Dinah Naa Aberde Aryeh, explained that the materials which included school bags, notebooks and pens, were to help enhance the delivery of quality and accessible education to children in the school since they didn’t have the means to do so.
“This school became of particular interest to us especially because the kids wanted to be impacted intellectually but they don’t have the resources, so we decided to come and sow a seed not only in terms of supplies but in terms of feeding.
“Most of these kids get their square meals from the schools, so as part of what Life Beacon is about, we decided to come support them,” she stated.
She was hopeful that the life experiences shared by members of the NGO to the children will aid in enlightening them to become key contributors to the development of society.
“We intend to share a few experiences…as well as fellowship with them, to encourage them and let them know it is a process, that they can do it one day at time,” she said.
Founder and Director of Life Beacon International, Ruby Appiah-Campbell, also explained the drive of the organization and what it seeks to do in the lives of children.
She noted that:
“Life Beacon International is an organization that seeks to support and guide young people in terms of the academic life and to give them an overview of the university life so they are not overwhlemd by the pressures at the tertiary level.
“We also assist them build a strong mental capacity to make stable their mental health.”
The main objective of Life Beacon International is to advance in life and help young people by developing their skills, capacities, and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.
