The Spark a Life initiative, in partnership with Nneka Youth Foundation, a non-profit organization, has organized a fundraising party to solicit funds in support of vulnerable school children.
The fundraising initiative named Spark a Life was launched by the Life Coaching company Spark Africa, earlier this year to raise funds to ensure 100 vulnerable children in rural areas can stay in school and achieve their full potential.
This past weekend’s fundraising party was targeted at supporting an estimated 40 vulnerable children staying in rural areas to remain in school.
According to organizers, more than 60 children have been supported by the Spark a Life initiative in the past from proceeds from such parties and donations, and this particular event is in similar direction to expand the scope of support
The unique party, which was held at the Polo Club, was an initiative of Spark a Life Founders’ Sonia Sharara and Giulia Tavolato, who decided to celebrate their birthday differently this year and use the occasion to raise awareness and more funds to help children stay in school.
The birthday party saw a lot of people come together to celebrate and raise funds to help these vulnerable children in rural areas, as the economic challenges in these communities are enormous.
Guests including influencers such as Jackie Appiah, Soa, as well as Canadian High Commissioner Kati Csaba and French Ambassador Sophie Ave, enjoyed a sparkling evening at the outside Polo bar with music, drinks, food and a fire dancer show.
Sponsors came onboard to support including Polo Club, Imexco Drinks Ltd, Orca Deco, Docutech Ltd, Kidsville, Little Paris and Canelle to make the evening a success.
Nneka Youth Foundation founder, Cecilia Fiaka, stated during the event that she was honoured by the support and shared that this gives her the strength to keep going. Her NGO has supported thousands of children in rural areas in Ghana to stay in school and achieve their full potential.
Spark a Life are continuing their work and want to raise more funds to support even more children, and welcome donations from supporters.
