Lil Jon Is Opening His Second School In Ghana
This past Tuesday, AOL confirmed the 46-year-old artist has opened the doors to Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School in eastern Ghana. Mafi Atitekpo is a part of a larger initiative, one that is connected to Lil Jon’s support of Pencils for Promise, an organization that builds schools in developing countries such as Guatemala, Laos, Nicaragua, and Ghana.
Lil Jon is one of our most loyal and passionate celebrity supporters, from his work in the field to donating his birthday to make two schools a reality, he continues to impact education needs for those in rural communities," PoP CEO Tanya Ramos told Entertainment Tonight. "We are thrilled to open the Mafi Atitekpo DA school with Lil Jon and can’t wait to see his impact in action."
The school, officially inaugurated over the summer, has since enrolled more than 300 children, in part due to Jon's $70,000 donation.
