Leveraging fame at every turn and helping others in the process.
In North America, education and sports are easily accessible and used as tools in the pursuit of higher education, sports, careers and the overall improvement of life skills. Students in Accra, Ghana, however, do not share in these opportunities. Limited education, lack of funding and the lack of resources are a reality for the children of Ghana.
Launched October 31, 2017, the Rozaay Management Book and Sneaker Drive aimed to inspire the youth of the Greater Toronto Area whilst inspiring change globally. We were able to join forces with ‘I Can We Can’ ( http://icanwecan.ca/home/ ), a registered charity in Canada. Rozaay Management conducted numerous events to collect over 550 pairs of sneakers and over 1000 books. In addition, NBA players and personnel have donated NBA Game tickets, shoes and signed memorabilia to the drive to help raise funds throughout the 2017/2018 NBA season. With the help from the great people of Toronto, we were able to impact over 600 lives in Ghana.

A4H provides a safe and fun environment that will encourage youth to be the best that they can be. From July 3rd - August 10th, we encourage everyone to stop by one of the 5 locations and donate books and/or shoes for year 2 of the drive!
