Along with fellow event manager Jada Badu, Kisanii is presenting Afrika Rising; a charitable arts showcase with amazing live music and an exclusive pop up supper club for VIP ticket holders. This night will feature the best in established and emerging artists of African descent. This showcase is held to raise awareness of the amazing work being carried out by the WAM Campaign.
The WAM Campaign is a registered charity which aims to facilitate volunteering programmes for young people, helping to expose deserving children (orphans and vulnerable children) living in Ghana to opportunities they may be socially marginalised from. They also run and facilitate fundraising initiatives in partnership with volunteers to support specific projects which enhance the educational development of the children based within the organisations we partner with in Ghana.
Ghana has a way of challenging and inspiring you to want to give back and do more. The WAM Campaign – supported by the Ghana High Commission – has recognised the need for this and aims to provide a gateway to connect YOU with opportunities to volunteer and give back in an easy, fun and practical way. “Your role as a volunteer, fundraiser or supporter, is to contribute your skills, gifts and talents in the best way you can, to empower the lives of others, because as we say here at WAM, The best of YOU, comes out when YOU give your best to others…”
