MUSICAL INSTRUMENT TRAINING
We have been inspired by visiting so many schools, community leaders and talking to children about the exciting opportunities available to children in music education and the result was gargantuan.

We are dedicated to restoring music education in Ghana’s public school, communities, remote villages and also raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education.

BUILDING MAINTENANCE TRAINING
It is well known in Ghana that maintenance is not part of our culture and that has coursed a lot of problems such as collapsing of individual’s homes, public schools, state owned properties and community buildings.
Ironically, when family member dies, no matter the circumstance, the head of the family will look for funding to renovate the family home before the burial ceremony, the building will see another renovation unless another one is gone. Reward Foundation will like to step in and educate the communities about impotence of maintenance and establish community volunteers groups in order to take responsibilities in their own communities. We like to cure that myth and educate the community about the importance of maintenance.
