We proudly support our long-term customers and their inspirational projects to help others. In 2015, we partnered with South African Airways to give away a few free flights to Africa. However, we didn’t give them away to just anybody. We chose people who want to change the world!
For that reason, we chose Viola Tebah and gave her free round-trip tickets from the US to Africa.
So let us tell you more about our customer Viola, and of course her meaningful work in Ghana, Africa. Viola Tebah is an African born model and is the founder of the Tebah Educational Initiative (TEI). Viola founded TEI to help students from developing countries around the globe. Firstly, to help them with their education, and secondly, to improve their quality of life. Furthermore, this helps the local communities.
Viola was born in Côte d’Ivoire and thereafter moved to Ghana and grew up there. Now she lives in the U.S. and is studying at university to become an accountant. Evidently, she understands the challenges facing many students in Ghana. Consequently, this project means a lot to her. She gives back devotedly to her own community and other communities.
She created TEI to provide the means and tools for the education of students around the world. She wants to give hope, inspiration, motivation, and encouragement to students to succeed in life.
Tebah Educational Initiative (TEI)
The Tebah Educational Initiative is based in Maryland. Presently there are schools in Takoradi, Tamale, and Bolgatanga for the purpose of helping students and orphans to get an education.
TEI cooperates with local schools and supports them with educational needs such as book donations and more.
TEI has been offering scholarships to African students in the Afigya Kwabre district. Since 2013, twenty students have been offered scholarship opportunities and for the most part, many of these students come from low-income families.
TEI also works with several orphanages in Haiti and there are plans to visit Ugandan schools. Such educational projects are very important and are helping to improve the future for this generation.
