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 /EINPresswire.com/ -- 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

encourage education and culture through philanthropic initiatives and can’t wait to advance the
mission with your support in 2022.
