A team of five young Ghanaians representing their 20-member Reliance Charity Foundation has made a massive donation to the Kansanso D/A school in the Asante Akim North District in the Ashanti Region.
Speaking to Briefly News, the leader of the group, Eric Owiredu Osei, indicates school uniforms were donated to pupils who lacked them and were discouraged to report to school even in their house attires.
In addition, sacks the students used as backpacks were replaced with proper school bags. They also presented furniture to these pupils so they no longer have to sit on blocks or the bare floor to undertake class exercises.
"We tried to inspire these kids to remain focused and keep an eye on the ultimate source of hope, the Almighty God who would touch the hearts of many to come to their aid in the near future," Owiredu also said.

Trevor Noah donates R8 million to local charity: Home is where the heart is
Trevor Noah may be flying high in the States but he has not forgotten his home country. The host of The Daily Show donated R8 million to a local project on behalf of The Trevor Noah Foundation and in partnership with YouthBuild South Africa (YBSA).
The YBSA aims to mobilise young adults between the ages of 17 and 29 who are not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) to improve their lives and communities. The hefty donation from the Trevor Noah Foundation will help further connect YBSA graduates in underserved communities work in selected sectors.
The Trevor Noah Foundation and YBSA have also helped various young people in Soweto with training and practical construction skills.
The Trevor Noah Foundation – in collaboration with the government, have also implemented programs in selected schools that allow access to well-established learning environments within their communities. Currently there are 11 schools being assisted.
Although each school faces physical, human resource, and financial constraints, they were hand-picked for exhibiting purpose-driven leadership and a commitment to excellence.
The Trevor Noah Foundation currently impacts over 500 teachers, 6000 learners, and countless families within the communities. The goal is to reach 25 schools by the end of 2025.
Speaking on the project, Noah said:
“Today's kids are told to be the leaders of tomorrow, but they're not given the tools. I'm excited about this partnership with YouthBuild because we're creating life-changing opportunities for South African youth. We all deserve to achieve our fullest potential no matter where we come from.”
