I love positive stories like this! A little over a year ago DJ/Rapper/Producer Lil Jon opened up his first school in Ghana. He announced earlier this year he would be opening a second school, the institution, which has been named the Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School, has now officially opened. It is located in the village of Mafi Atitekpo.
Lil Jon partnered with Pencils of Promise to open the new school. His first school with the youth-focused organization opened in July 2017 and is currently providing 244 enrolled children with an education. The second school has has reportedly enrolled over 300.
Lil Jon shared in a statement. “It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures.” According to Pencils of Promise, Lil Jon donated a total of $70,000 to get the two schools off the ground.
