Atlanta-based Nonprofit Uses the FirstSummer Post-Lockdown to Adopt and VisitTwo Ghanaian Primary

The Mariah Foundation provides supplies to 1,400+ Ghanaian students summer 2021

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / -- The Mariah Foundation

founder, Alysse Daniels, M.Ed, traveled with a delegation to Ghana’s Cape Coast in early July

2021. True World Link coordinated the trip to highlight history, engage in community, while

accomplishing the foundation’s mission of exposing children to African and Pan-African history

and culture. Each leg of the trip supported the pillars of the “Beyond the Return'' initiative of the

government of Ghana. Through the generous donations of individual and corporate sponsors,

The Mariah Foundation was able to hand-deliver backpacks filled with supplies and books to

over 1,400 students across two separate schools and donate notebooks, writing utensils, and

instructional materials to their teachers.

The delegation was escorted to Moree D.A Basic School in Cape Coast, Ghana by three local

Chiefs to greet 1,100+ students from kindergarten through 5th grade across all 16 classrooms of

the facility. The delegates visited and read to the students throughout the building while

distributing supplies. Headmaster Obed Asiedu Woode commented, “We are grateful for such a

wonderful visit… volunteering and [the] donations of school supplies''. Delegates then traveled

to the Abudinsu D.A. Primary school in Kumasi to distribute supplies and meet with students and

teachers to learn about education in Ghana.

Alysse and The Mariah Foundation team observes the experience impactful for both parties as

they “returned home” and connected with the students and staff as their sisters from America.

To provide continuity in service, supplies and experiences, True World Link has established the

Sister School program to formalize the relationship and create long-lasting support connecting

both schools with the Kindezi Charter Schools in Atlanta, Georgia. Planning is underway for the

Ghana Trip 2022.

Supporters can follow Adventures With Mariah on all social platforms to connect with the

foundation and it’s accompanying children’s series “Adventures with Mariah” which is available

for purchase at , where you can also make a taxdeductible

donation. The Mariah Foundation and True World Link look forward to continuing to

encourage education and culture through philanthropic initiatives and can’t wait to advance the

mission with your support in 2022.
