On the 14th of March, Arms Around The Child partnered with our ambassador, Ghanaian native and Professional Footballer, Christian Atsu to host The Black Star Gala in Newcastle. The evening’s success highlighted the power of football in its ability to create global social change.
The funds raised will go towards an ambitious 8 classroom school build in Senya-Beraku, Ghana. The new building will help educate 300 children and move them into a safe and fit-for-purpose school building. It is more than a centre of learning; it is a symbol of hope for the future of the community.
The footballers, celebrities and donors who gathered to support the work of Arms Around The Child were treated to outstanding performances from an array of artists. Each entertainment act was packed with talent, from the rising star, CHARLOTTE, the world-renowned DJ Marvin Humes, RAMZ-whose break-out hit Barking topped the charts, and the inspiring gospel choir, Voices of Virtue.
We are very grateful for the support of Christian Atsu and those who so graciously donated towards the future generations of Senya-Beraku.
