The Menaye Foundation is a charitable organization that supports many different causes. The first is the Menaye School Of Hope, which provides education for children in the local community in a deprived area of Ghana. There are around 300 pupils at the school, who would not otherwise have been able to have an education had it not been for the school.
There is no free education in Ghana, so those children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school must miss out on education and work instead. The Menaye International School selects these children from some of Ghana’s most deprived regions.
Menaye is entirely responsible for the funding of the school, and pays the teachers’ salaries, for the books, IT equipment and general everyday maintenance costs of running the centre. Menaye’s next step will be to raise enough funds to buy a bus to provide transport for the children to and from school.
Menaye also worked closely with two orphanages in Ghana, in Prampram and Somanya, which looks after children infected by AIDS and HIV. Menaye’s charity provides vital medication for these children. Menaye’s charity also generously provides funds for other worthwhile endeavours that are important to Menaye.
