The executives of Scratch Studios have promised to the patrons of the Dream child Concert that, the proceeds of the upcoming musical concert would be canalled towards bringing hope to the orphans in the society in the country.
The chief Executive Officer of Scratch Studios Mr. Kofi Amoakoh has observed that, the third edition of the concert at the National Theater in Accra on 22nd March, would yeild towards helping orphans in the country.
The Dream Child Foundation seeks to empower underprivileged African children to play important roles in the continent’s socio-economic development.
It does that by raising funds through a major concert each year and donates the money to a specific organisation working in children’s interests.
Proceeds from the first concert in 2012 went to the children’s unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Money was raised for the Child Development Centre at Apam last year.
This year’s philanthropic initiative will benefit Orphan Aid Africa which works to put orphans in foster cater instead of institutions.
“Anything about children interests me and that is why we must all patronize the March 22 concert and help to put smiles on the faces of children,” Becca said at the concert launch which was chaired by H. E. Ademola Oluseyi Onafowokan, the Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana.
He announced that the next Dream Child charity will come off in Lagos next year. Scratch Studios officials also indicated that the concert in 2016 was likely to come off in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Meanwhile apart from Becca, other artistes expected to be on the bill are Osibisa, Elivava, Ralph Karikari and some other top performers from Nigeria.
