Ghanaian Afro-Pop star, Wiyaala, has visited Benenden School, an exclusive all girl boarding academy in the heart of the Kent countryside to help raise funds for Teach2Teach International, an NGO based in Northern Ghana, whose mission is to provide a training programme for volunteer teachers that will boost education for the region’s children.
Wiyaala performed for the students and spoke about Ghana to the whole school at morning assembly and later met members of the staff and girls for an informal lunchtime performance and discussion.
Benenden School is ranked amongst the top schools in the UK and amongst its famous alumni is none other than Anne, The Princess Royal, second child and only daughter of HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
Also in attendance was Teach2Teach founder, Ms Anita Lowenstein Dent, who is a TV documentary producer with many years experience at the BBC.
