British-Ghanaian Afrobeat megastar, Fuse ODG is transforming the lives of kids in Akosombo through his Wood World Mission School.
A few years ago, he adopted the Wood World Mission School, harnessing the vision of turning the school into an international education sector for the study of modern trends in technology. He took a team of volunteers including UK’s finest female musician, Stefflon Don to the school last year to tour and engage in fun activities with the kids. This was right after he launched the maiden edition of TINA Festival, which became an instant hit due to its uniqueness.
Now an annual festival, Fuse ODG launched the second edition of the festival and officially began executing the line up of activities leading to the main show, dubbed Kente Party on January 3rd, 2020 at Labadi Beach Hotel. He once again went to Akosombo with a large team of volunteers, who were briefed on the activities of the school.
Fuse ODG and the volunteers painted the various classrooms for the kids. Also, a site marked for the construction of the state-of-the-art high school block has seen a major structure placed on it. From the foundation to almost the roof level, Fuse ODG assured volunteers that the school building might be completed by the middle of 2020, that’s if they are able to raise all the funds needed to purchase materials and other logistics on time.
”It’s very important to sow these seeds to bear fruits of future leaders, for a better nation, better people. Every little thing that we do make such a major difference. We are creating memories that these kids will never forget,” Fuse ODG said during the tour of the high school block under construction at Wood World Mission School.
”Wherever country you are from, whether it’s Holland, US etc, let’s stay connected and consistent so we can raise money to build a community that can actually help these children,” he added.
Fuse ODG has been very instrumental in the push of the African narratives by Africans through the New Africa Nation movement he started a couple of years ago. TINA Festival is part of the movement to foster unity among Ghanaians living in Ghana and the diasporans to celebrate the Ghanaian culture each year.
