Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
YEN.com.gh has learned that a group of American school children have raised funds to support Ghanaian children who are struggling to access education.
The decision was reached after the students, who are in Minneapolis, were motivated to assist after learning of the struggles Ghanaian children face in a bid to get education.
The American students study at the John Paul the Second and Ascension Catholic School in Minneapolis and the St. Peter Claver in St. Paul.
One of the students, Rachel Criollo, explained that “I kind of feel bad for them because it’s not fair.”
Helena Farrell added that “It’s hard for like kids to get a good education so they can go to high school and college”.
They then began to mobilize monies in order to purchase educational materials for Ghanaian students, dailmailgh.com reports.
In other news, some Ghanaians have taken to social media to explain why they believe the ruling New Patriotic Party does not deserve another chance.
According to them, some key figures in government have disappointed them and for that reason they have lost faith in the government.
The revelation was in reaction to a question posed with respect to a passionate appeal by the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Dr. Bawumia, the ruling government deserves another chance because it has done more in the last three years than the erstwhile Mahama ever did.
He made the appeal during the closing ceremony of the youth conference organized by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Tamale in the Northern region.
His call for an extension of mandate of the ruling government did not, however, go down well with some social media users.
