As part of giving back to the society, gospel artiste Gifty Osei and her Empress Ministry are embarking on an educational scholarship scheme for the brilliant but needy in the society.
This initiative is to help brilliant children who can’t continue their education due to financial constraints.
“This idea came after my Ubufakazi Bami concert. I think that as Christians love should be paramount in our lives, not the love we show to only people who are good or close to us but to those in need as well.
“On this note, I urge other musicians to extend a helping hand to those in need. I know there are a lot of children who need our help and I do not think the NGO’s can do all on their own, we need to come in and help,” she said in an interview with livefmghana.com.
In order to let people know how serious she is about this, Gifty has taken a step of sponsoring a girl who had 9 ones in her Basic Education Certificate Examination to secondary school and intends to see her through the tertiary as well.
She said; “for me this girl is intelligent and has something inside her that needs to be nurtured and I want to unearth that thing, who knows what the future has for her and how Ghana will benefit.”
The Jesus Be Too Much singer added that this gesture is not going to be just a one off thing.
