The First Donation
The Distant Relatives Project first donation was in December of 2017; we donated school supplies to Chia Methodist Primary School’s, both located in Akim, Oda, in the eastern region of Ghana.
In partnering with Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, a Ghanaian Parliament Member, we impacted over 800 students, providing them with composition and educational books, desktops, laptops, sports equipment and more.
It was that day that our founder, William Asiedu, made a personal commitment to make education a right for all children and to provide opportunities and access to resources for all underserved communities.

Again, thank you so much.”Senyo Solomon JonasHeadmaster/Principal
