Lil Jon has followed through on his promise and opened his second school with organization Pencils of Promise in Ghana.
On Nov. 13, Pencils of Promise confirmed the opening of Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School in Mafi Atitekpo, Ghana. The opening of Mafi Attitekpo DA Primary School is a part of a continued effort between the 47-year-old rapper and PoP. In Oct. 2017, Lil Jon announced the opening of Abomayaw D.A. Kindergarten, a learning facility located in the same Eastern Ghanan village.
“Lil Jon is one of our most loyal and passionate celebrity supporters, from his work in the field to donating his birthday to make two schools a reality, he continues to impact education needs for those in rural communities,” Pencils of Promise CEO Tanya Ramos told VIBE. “We are thrilled to open the Mafi Atitekpo DA school with Lil Jon and can’t wait to see his impact in action.”
The super producer also shared his joy over the school in a statement.
“Last year [October of 2017] I went with my family to open up my first Pencils of Promise school in Ghana, and now to have over 300 kids already enrolled in my second school there is incredible!” he said. “It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures.”
According to AOL, Mafi Atitekpo DA officially opened it’s doors in July and has since been operating with approximately 313 children enrolled.
Lil Jon has donated a total of $70,000 to help fund the development of both schools.
