Lil Jon is continuing his philanthropic efforts by renewing his partnership with Pencils of Promise and opens a second school in Ghana.

With a passion for aiding education in underprivileged communities, Jon has continued to use his fame for the greater good and opened Mafi Atitekpo DA Primary School located in the village of Mafi Atitekpo in Ghana. 

The Atlanta rapper dedicated the opening of the schools in Ghana after his first visit to the country. Having seen the harsh conditions children are learning under and being a father himself, it drove Jon to look into giving back to communities. Jon opened the first school just a year ago in memory of his mother Carrie M., and has donated a total of $70,000 to help fund the development of both schools.

The grammy award winning artist stated, “It’s been really fulfilling to see the impact these schools have made on so many of these children’s and families’ futures.” In a interview with CNN Lil John added, “Children shouldn’t have to suffer for any reason. One of these kids could grow up to be a scientist, a lawyer, an astronaut, the president of their country. I could create an environment where all these things could happen.”

With the dedication Jon has been giving towards the cause, he is definitely contributing to the advancement of childrens education while displaying his humantarian efforts.
