A Letter from nKoso
Every year we fundraise for nKoso to ensure that the education for young students in rural Ghana is not disrupted. With all that is going on, I’m reminded why we started nKoso and why we continue to work hard to provide the financial means for these students to attend school. In a world that at times appears to be lacking compassion, we want our families and students to know that they are cared about. We want them to know that even though we live a world away and that our struggle in life is different, we take them with us in our hearts because they matter. nKoso is merely a vehicle for sharing this message with them.
In deciding the best course of action for fundraising this year, we have partnered with ARI DRIVE to host an event in Philadelphia on November 20, 2016. ARI DRIVE is a boutique, creative studio with a unique approach to artistic services, instilling beauty, diversity, expression and authenticity. We are honored to be working with ARI DRIVE, knowing that they share the drive and motivation to be a force for good in a world that can feel dark. You can learn more about ARI DRIVE here.
In the face of so many tragedies this year, we wanted to highlight and showcase the incredible work and creations that wonderful people are putting forth on this planet. We honor their work and their effort to create beauty and goodwill in our world. We hope that you will join us in Philadelphia on November 20th for a celebration of beauty and compassion at a cocktail brunch as we provide uninterrupted education for sweet, young children in Ghana.
We are partnering with ARI DRIVE to help raise awareness for our young students with a very special event. Each donation ticket price includes entry, cocktail appetizers, access to art showcase by local artists and entrepreneurs, music provided by Dexter Gordon of A Walk In My Soles, live performances by Binty Koroma, Shayna Winters & more. All tickets are first come first served as seating is extremely limited! This is going to be a very special, intimate evening planned by Natasha Chancey of Make It Pop NYC.
We truly appreciate the love & support to make this goal possible.
All ticket donations can be purchased here.
nKoso is a non profit organization committed to providing education for primary age children in rural Ghana. We are a small operation and fundraising efforts cover school fees for the students in our program, financial support to our local staff member on the ground in Ghana and occasionally to support events like this one to raise enough funds to support all of our students. We partner with three affordable private schools, Yesu Mmo, St. Cecilia Educational Centre and Sabwill Educational Complex. Learn more about nKoso here.
