Entertainer Sam Okyere helped build a school in his motherland, Ghana


World Vision announced on November 15 that Sam Okyere attended the opening ceremony of 572 School in Ghana after a successful crowdfunding allowed its establishment. 


572 School was built with funds collected through a crowdfunding called, 'Orange Act' that Sam Okyere hosted. A total of 5,203 individuals donated 77,000,000 KRW (~$60,000 USD) to the fund.

During the opening ceremony speech, Sam Okyere stated, "I had the privilege of receiving an education because of a sponsor who supported me. However, education should be a right, not a privilege," and talked about how all children have a right to receive an education. 


He continued, "Education is an essential element for human growth and an opportunity to achieve one's dream...I am happy that 1,000 children will enjoy the right to receive an education and to dream at 572 School." 


Sam Okyere also thanked the sponsors who donated to the school project, saying, "I sincerely thank the 5,203 sponsors who gave."
