Sarah Afia Kittoe, a 10-year-old British-Ghanaian author, has made a commitment to refurbish the school library of Tema Methodist Basic School in Ghana. Sarah, who has authored three books, made the promise during her recent visit to Ghana with her family to share her story of resilience, purpose, can-do, friendship, and family values as contained in her books with kids in Ghana.

During her visit, Sarah donated copies of her books to the school and also interacted with the pupils, reading portions of the books to them and interviewing them about their passions in life. She encouraged her fellow kids to be firm and resolute about what they want to be in the future and work at it with passion, saying that “you can do anything once you put your mind to it and work at it.”

While at the school, Sarah noticed the library’s state and the kind of books on the shelves. She found the library congested in terms of the setting, and the books on the shelves were very few and not relevant to the pupils. Thus, she plans to organize a fundraiser in the UK and add some of the proceeds from the sale of her books to help refurbish the library of her dad’s alma mater on her next visit to Ghana.

Sarah has been donating all the proceeds from the sale of her books to two charities in the UK – CenterPoint, which takes care of challenged youth, and the Croydon Methodist Church Wednesday Drop-in, where needy people in society go for free groceries, toiletries, and some stipends every Wednesday.

Sarah plans to reach out to various institutions in the UK to help her raise funds to refurbish the library. She also hopes to return to Ghana soon to meet more of her age mates and donate to more charities in the country.

For the most part, Sarah’s commitment to refurbish the school library of Tema Methodist Basic School shows her philanthropic spirit and desire to improve education in Ghana. Her actions also serve as an inspiration to other kids that they can make a positive impact in their communities.
