Dr Ray Johnson, Director of Victory International Foundation said the purpose of the donation was to enroll 27 children into formal education this year.

Mr Ataa Lartey, Chief Executive Officer of Street Academy said every child needs formal education and their economic situation should not deny them of that.

“The organization supports children to have formal education and if children are well educated they can become whatever they want to be. It could also reduce social vices in the society.” he said.

He explained that their target was children within Accra Central, especially the fishing community of Osu.

Dr Victoria Smith, Volunteer Managing Trustee of OTTN explained that they are committed to ensuring that every child has exercise books for academic exercises.
