When you help a child realize his or her dream, you help build a Generation.” This is the favourite quote of Sylvester Serene Ocansey, a model and a finalist of the Photo Icon Ghana 2016.
Oprah Winfrey once said, and I quote “You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.” This belief has lead Sylvester to start a project themed LEND 2 LEARN: adding quality to the acquisition of knowledge and skills of a child.
Project LEND 2 LEARN commenced on Tuesday, July 12, 2016.
He visited Worta EP primary school, situated at Etterh Korpe, a village in the Volta region, where the pupils go to school on barefoot, without uniforms nor books. He had the opportunity to interact with some parents and teachers, including the current headmaster Mr Wise, who told the LEND 2 LEARN team the school has so many challenges that impedes learning. He expressed his delight in our donation of uniforms and shoes to the needy kids as well as books, pens and pencils all the pupils.
There was massive joy in the atmosphere as this was the first time such a thing has happened in the school. Sylvester believes when you open a school door you close a prison, come join him and let’s build a well-educated, beautiful and confident generation.
