Tina Ketewa shows love to Aboom Special School

In a heartwarming gesture of generosity, budding media personality Tina Ketewa marked her birthday not with lavish parties or extravagant gifts, but by extending a helping hand to the Aboom Special School in Cape Coast.

The social media influencer and radio presenter chose to celebrate her special day by donating to support the school’s students and staff, demonstrating her commitment to making a positive impact in her community.

The Aboom Special School, located in Cape Coast, caters for children with various special needs such as autism, down syndrome, and dyslexia among others. The school was established in 2006 and currently has about 163 students aged 4 – 34 years. The school runs both the regular and vocational modules where the children are taught skills like baking, sewing and beadmaking.

The school currently runs daily due to a lack of boarding facilities. However, they still strive to serve the pupils with hot meals daily. Over the years, the school has faced numerous challenges in meeting the needs of its students due to limited resources and funding constraints. The donation consisted of food items like sacks of rice, a box of cooking oil, a box of tomato paste, bags of water, boxes of biscuits and some detergents.

“I wanted to do something different for my birthday this year,” said Tina Ketewa. According to her, this is something she has always wanted to do. She decided to solicit funds from friends, family and well-wishers to enable her to embark on this project. “I was amazed when I got people on social media sending in contributions,” she continued.

The donation from Tina Ketewa will greatly ease the burden of securing foodstuff for the preparation of meals, allowing the staff to channel their limited funds into securing other important teaching and learning materials needed.

Aside, from the presentation of the items, Tina spent some time with the children, dancing and making merry. She also encouraged them not to look down on themselves because they were born different. “Never look down on yourself or feel sad because you are different. You are perfect just the way you are and God loves you,” she said as a way of encouraging them to embrace their uniqueness.

She praised the teachers for taking up such a Herculean task and implored them to be extra patient in dealing with them. The school’s principal, Madam Mary Osei, who received the items expressed her profound gratitude to the birthday girl and prayed for God’s continued blessings upon her life.

This might be her first solo donation but Tina Ketewa has always been passionate about children and helping the needy. She has volunteered severally on projects dedicated to helping the less privileged in society and is actively involved in various charitable initiatives, particularly those involving children. She believes everyone can make a difference no matter how small.
