Newcastle supporters have launched a fundraising effort in memory of the late Christian Atsu with the goal of completing the former winger's endeavour to construct a new school in Ghana.

Atsu was a representative of the nonprofit organization Arms Around the Child, and he was working with them to help with the new school's ongoing construction.

However, some Ghanaians have advised the group to come into the country and set up the institution instead of contracting someone in Ghana for the project.
