Christian Zogli -Chairman, Nunya Foundation Why this initiative?
Chair: The reason is to give knowledge back to the society. How are the schools selected?
Chair: The schools were selected by members of the foundation; a member decides the school we shall go. This means that, if it’s your turn as a member, you will choose a school for the foundation to do the donations to in your name. This is how we intend to do it until we visit schools chosen by members of the foundation before we move out. Do you select the books or the schools do their own selections?
Chair: The foundation recommends the books and the schools selected from the recommended books. How are you funding this project?
Chair: The project is self- funded. Members of the foundation contribute towards this project. Is there a mechanism to monitor how the books are used?
Chair: The foundation task members whose schools have benefited to visit the schools and monitor to give feedback to the foundation. Who can join the foundation and how? 
Chair: Anybody at all who is ready to give back to society can join us. If you join us, we shall pass through you to donate Eʋe books to  the school you will choose.
Chairman Christian Zogli is calling on all well meaning Eʋeviwo and non Ewes as well to come on board in order to make the project a big one.

About 3,000 people displaced in Keta; JJ Gonami laments effect of climate change

The Tidal Waves has displaced about 3000 people in the Keta Municipality. The incident occurred on Sunday, 7 November 2021.
Following the disaster, JJ Gonami also known as Dr Gbekui is out with a new tune titled “Keta“, a piece to awaken our leaders to take up their responsibilities towards making the Keta Municipality a safe haven for indigenes again.
Gonami in a WhatsApp post said “It’s true our people are suffering! 
The farm lands are no longer bearing fruits.” He was quick to add “maybe it could also be as result of Climate change”


Affected communities include Kedzikope, Keta Central and Abutiakope. Residents were forced out of their homes while others salvaged some of their belongings onto portions of the main road waiting for the water to recede. Tidal waves have been an annual occurrence in these areas. They can be resolved when a sea defense wall is constructed.

The See Them Records boss in his new song #KETA calls on the authorities’ to do the needful, saying, “Keta used to be the Volta Regional Capital back in the days but due to havocs wrecked by the angry ocean, it was moved to Ho”.
He bemoans the lack of livelihoods in which has led to many youths seeking greener pastures elsewhere.  “Now when our fathers go fishing they usually come back home with nothing.  This has made a lot of youths to travel  to Benin, Togo, Nigeria, Akosombo, Cote D’Ivoire, Burkina Faso among others” Gonami said in a post.
 JJ Gonami laments greatly about the severity of what these people they go through to survive. The Dzidzɔkpɔkpɔ singer sounded so broken when he said “Only God knows what happens to them over there . Some of them die over there and they remove their finger nails and hair and bring back to the country to burry.  Only God knows the number school going age who died in the Akosombo Lake”.
The crime rate in Volta region is on the upward surge. Dr. Gbekui alludes this to the lack livelihoods and calls for urgent attention to salvage the situation. 
He says “I am pleading with our Chiefs , Assemblymen , Opinion leaders , Investors to come to the aid of my people”

Seyram Music visits The Amissah-Arthur Learning Center

Seyram with some students at the center


Talented Ewe folk song art Seyram Music was over the weekend at Abor in the Volta Region, for a song collaboration with radio engineer DJComma. The yet to be released track ‘gbogborvor’ tells you to ignore your critics, keep being resilient and your crown of victory is assured.

Seyram’s announcement of the trip on Facebook caught the eye of a VIP fan, Uncle Ben Dotsei Malor who requested of him (Seyram) to visit learners at the Amissah-Arthur Learning Center in Ohawu. After his program at Abor, Seyram indeed went to the center to interact with the students. The students took turns to appreciate Uncle Ben for his continual support.

Chief Editor of the UN Dailies Ben Dotsei Malor is an ardent fan and supporter of Seyram Music. This is probably because Seyram chose to revive some fond childhood/youthhood memories in uncle Ben and this is evident in one of his posts on Facebook.

He expressed such gratitude to Seyram for taking time off his schedule to surprise the students with his visit. He encouraged all and sandry to keep adhering to the COVID protocols called on those who have not yet taken the vaccine to do so.

The Amissah-Arthur Learning Center in Ohawu in the Ketu North Municipality was built in honor of Ghana’s former vice president late Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur to promote reading habits among school children.

The facility which consist a library, an 18-seater computer laboratory, reading area and board games sector was initiated by Uncle Ben Dotsei Malor, founder of Torna Foundation. It cost $50,000.
