The former Second Lady, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has advised the kids in Kinder Paradise, an orphanage at Prampram, to take their lessons seriously in order to excel in life and become the future leaders of this great country.
Mrs. Amissah-Arthur gave the advice last Saturday during a visit to Kinder Paradise, an orphanage at Prampram, in the Dangme East District in the Greater Accra Region, when she donated assorted food items and also interacted with the children.
The former Second Lady, a friend to Kinder Paradise for the past five years, said it had been her practice to visit the orphanage, at least twice a year, to extend a helping hand to children in the orphanage.
She said, as part of her Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the children, she donated food items – bags of rice, cooking oil, candies, drinks, as well as some educational materials – to support the children this Christmas.
She also used the occasion to wish the children well and God’s blessings.
She advised the children in the orphanage to work hard and respect their caregivers.
Kinder Paradise, meaning Children’s Paradise in the German language, is a Christian charitable institution, which cares for impoverished, marginalised, and socially neglected children deprived of their rights.
As part her visit to the orphanage, the children put up a host of educational activities to entertain her.
Madam Silke Roesner, Director of Kinder Paradise, said it was her greatest wish to see the children grow up to become independent, self-confident and responsible members of their communities.
Kinder Paradise was established in October, 1998, as an orphanage. It has 74 inmates – 29 girls and 45 boys – who are being provided with education from nursery to Junior High School (JHS) levels.
