BENEFITING: Read 2 Lead Foundation
About 2 years a go Read 2 Lead was founded to breed the next generation of leaders through reading. Although having a library in a community is a basic necessity most communities around the globe do not have access to one. Last year we were able to build a library in Gbawe a community in the capital city of Ghana. This library serves over 6,000 students in the community. This year we are building a library in Asuodei a community an hour away from the second biggest city in Ghana, Kumasi. This new library location holds a special place in the heart of our founder Samantha Boateng because 50 years ago her grandfather built a school for this same community that she will be adding on to. In addition to building this library, part of the funds raised will be used to hold our Academic Bowl Competition which brings together about 10 schools to compete and win prizes. Part of the funds raised will go to help maintain and improve certain aspects of our library in Gbawe. Read 2 Lead is a 501(c)(3) and any donation is tax deductible. 100% of the proceeds go directly to building the library and the other projects. All volunteers fund their own travel and expenses. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the life of the next generation of leaders.
