Philanthropist and 2015 GUBA Award humanitarian award winner, Daniel Amoateng, has given scholarship to four needy but brilliant pupils.
Three out of the four pupils were drawn from Bestway international School in the Ashanti Region and one defiled girl from Glorious Pearls Complex schools in the Greater Accra regions.
According to Daniel Amoateng, who doubles as the founder of the Daniel Amoateng foundation, he noted that he believes his success is tied to giving and helping the less privilege as instructed in the Bible.
“It is our duty to extend a hand to our own people who need it, rather than calling in foreign partners to come to our aid”, he reiterated.
As part of the scholarship, Daniel Amoateng fed over 600 children drawn from Bestway International School in Kumasi. He also gave monies to his kindergarten and primary school teachers from his alma mater who taught him between 1990 and 1996. In all, a total of Gh ₵8000 was spent on the feeding and donations.
In an interview with yen.com.gh, he explained that the decision to bless his former teachers is because they taught him the foundations of life to help him become who he is today.
“I read Civil engineering, so the mathematics, English and science that they taught me is what I built upon to become a civil engineer, adding that it is appropriate for all to remember the teachers who have been good to them in their life time, especially those who gave them that basic foundation in life”, he noted.
Daniel Amoateng is a philanthropist whose activities have spanned from Ghana to the borders of Liberia and Sierra Leone. He also paid the fees of about five brilliant and needy children in the Greater Accra region who were drawn from Odorkor, Anyaa, and Amasaman last year. He also donated to support ten widows in Adukrom and Okyerekrom in the Eastern Region in December, last year. On February 2, this year, Daniel Amoateng spent his birthday with prison inmates at the Senior Correctional Centre and also donated an undisclosed amount of money to the Chairman of the Prisons Council, Rev. Stephen Wengam to support project Efiase.
Daniel Amoateng’s passion is to do philanthropy and put a smile on the faces of many.
