Lil Jon has been making a difference out in Ghana! According to CNN, Lil Jon partnered with Pencils of Promise to help bring proper education to children in underdeveloped countries.
Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School is the second of two schools he has helped fund. The school will enroll 313 children in the village of Mafi Atitekpo in Ghana.
The rapper donated a total of $70,000 to fund the school, along with another that opened last October.
He said, “When I saw the conditions where these children were trying to learn, one community they had a big mango tree and two classes were sitting under the mango tree and that’s not a condition conducive with learning.”
He also said his role as a father influenced him to join the organization. “Children shouldn’t have to suffer for any reason.” He continued, “One of these kids could grow up to be a scientist, a lawyer, an astronaut, the president of their country. I could create an environment where all these things could happen.”
