Students of Vine Christian High School serve the less privileged food, drinks

Vine Christian High School last weekend donated food and drinks to the less privileged on some streets in Accra. This initiative was the second edition, held on the theme: “Feed My People”.


Among beneficiaries were hawkers, beggars and the physically-challenged along the main roads of Shiashie, Accra Mall, Opeibea and 37 in Accra.

With a zeal to be part of an experience that fosters a sense of community and shared responsibility, the students distributed the food and drinks.

In an interview, the Principal of the school, Mr Victor Tekpetey, said the meals were prepared and event planned by the students under the guidance of their teachers and a student’s committee.

He expressed the school's dedication to instilling Christian values beyond academics in the students.
“Education goes beyond textbooks; it is about shaping compassionate individuals who contribute positively to society", he noted.

"The project, named ‘Christmas Cook N’ Serve’, to be held yearly, was designed to teach our students the importance of empathy and kindness to those who do not enjoy the same privileges they do", he explained.

He added that the school, located within the East Legon, Adjiringanor community in Accra, runs both the British and Ghana Education Service Curriculum. Mr Tepketey showed gratitude to their sponsors, Fotostore Ghana, ZoomLion Waste Management, Petrosol, Tourpedia Travel, and Pick and Bite Cake.

The Student President and committee Chairperson, Benaiah Ayensu, said although he enjoyed the impact they made, planning was quite a challenge for him.

“Leadership is very dynamic, it takes time and patience, especially working with people to help put things together. I believe at the end of the day, we are all one people, no matter the background, because love is all that matters”, he said.

The co-chairperson of the student’s committee, Nakeasha Ejim, said planning was tougher than she expected but seeing the smiles on the faces of the beneficiaries, made it all worth it.

“Looking at the predicament of some of these people, I am very grateful for the life I have and hope more opportunities are made available to them also”, she said.

Another student, Louisa Xose Ayem, sharing her experience, said the act of giving energised and excited her which made her always open to doing more.

“Small acts of kindness can make a big difference in anyone’s life so having the opportunity to make someone’s day is fulfilling”, she noted.
