Raised by 893 people in 5 months
Blessings family Chakabars, Fuse Odg, Chronixx and Donisha here :) We have decided to embark on a new mission, to build a local High school in Ghana and to refurbish a very important school in Jamaica!

                                               Vision
Each one, Teach One. We want to create a safe and comfortable environment for youths on the continent and in the diaspora to learn and connect with each other through responsible use of technology and a shared curriculum that embraces their culture and identity in preparation for their own evolution. This is a call to action to a global village of inspired individuals to collaborate on a project that will bridge a gap and outlive us all. Whilst we are doing the building work, we will also be starting a volunteering programme for each school whereby people can support virtually behind the scenes, or actually go and physically help out while they are on holiday.

                                 Why are we linking up?
Because together we are stronger, we believe that the people are generous and want to give but don't trust big charities because they take ages to get jobs done and you never see where the money went! We have a plan! We need 20,000 people to donate £25, in order to reach our target of £500,000. And with our collective talent, skill sets and social media following, that shouldn't be too hard. Right?

The money will be split equally between the school that Chronixx wants to refurbish and the School that Fuse wants to build. Donisha will be helping to make sure that we find sustainable ways to manifest and manage this project from the grass roots up. While, Chaka will continue to travel in between both Nations as an ambassador, building a bridge and keep the global village informed with videos and images! 

Both Chronixx and Fuse will be hosting concerts in aid of this #wewillrizetogether project, so stay tuned for more details of when and where!

                                        A Little History...
GHANA: Wood World Mission Akosombo School

Back in 2007, Fuse ODG teamed up with a charity called Wood World Mission and fundraised to build a primary school, in a small town named Akosombo in Ghana. Over the years, the school has made an incredible impact on not just the students that attend but the broader community. The first cohort of students should be starting secondary school in September 2017.
But the nearest secondary school is miles away and most families are not able to afford the school fees.

JAMAICA: Haile Selassie High School
Chronixx chose this school because of the important history. Let's go  back to 1966, when H.I.M Emperor Haile Selassie I made a state visit to Jamaica. His Majesty got a chance to tour Kingston and see the sites of where and how the people were living. Before his visit was over, he  purchased a plot of land and donated it to the people of Jamaica in aid of High School to help further the education and life opportunities for Jamaicans living in sub- standard situations. In 1969, the Haile Selassie High School was established in Payne Ave.  But since then, the school has come upon hard times and is in need of some serious Love and attention.

                                            Goals
"It takes a village to raise a child. " Our aim is to promote and enhance the total physical, intellectual, social, cultural and spiritual development of all students who come within its sphere of influence of each school, thereby making them fit to live and fit to live with.

- Raise £250,000 per school.
-Over the next 5 years, we will educate hundreds of children and employ many people from the local communities.
-Equip the school with proper facilities and modern tools that will help in the advancement of their knowledge in the scope of the world.
-Compliment traditional education with a number of vocational and creative skills such a carpentry, cosmetology, culinary, manufacturing natural hair & body products, filmmaking, music and sewing to name a few so, that they will be equipped as soon as they leave with the skills to go out and earn a living and tell their story. 

We need your help. Let's come together as a global village, using our capital, our resources, and our influence to give all these students a brighter future.

This project will:

This is such and exciting project, there is enough money out there to get this done.  We have no big overheads, we have no big marketing campaign. Every penny will go into funding this project! Keep an eye on our socials for updates, we’re building as we go along!

HAILE SELASSIE HIGH SCHOOL


(Chronixx and Chaka got a chance to meet with some of the staff and  students of the school to strategize how we were going to work together and involve the surrounding community.)
(The students are super excited to begin the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical process it will take to get their school morale and infrastructure where it needs to be.)
