As human as we are, we are always tempted to take the things we do daily for granted. One of such regular practices is the eating of an indigenous food called kenkey. We eat Kenkey everywhere from our workplace to our various home. Wait! Home. Yes home, there is no place like home, where we are served with palatable food every day. When students go to school, they always tend to miss their mums home cooked meal a lot.
From the aforementioned concept; our desire to have some palatable food down our throat into our stomach gave birth to a plausible idea for a group of young people to come together and set-up a project to raise funds through a food fair.
People living in Accra are well-known for their desire for hot Ga Kenkey mostly eaten in the evenings after work and school.
It was a good avenue to use food to get people together to raise funds for a worthy cause. For young people to cultivate such a habit at a very young age speaks a lot about their goodwill and the need for us to encourage such act of kindness.
This initiative by “Tatas and Friends,” was to raise funds through the sales of Ga Kenkey to help the needy. This wasn’t just your normal Ga Kenkey, but a special one with special ingredients that will give you the craving of buying more.
The project is a laudable idea and needs more companies to support and make it bigger. So that more lives can be changed.
Tatas and Friends is a Non-Governmental Organization founded on July 29, 2013. They have on numerous occasions reached out to orphanages and also those in need across the country. They believe they are change makers and they intend to make change in the country.
