From page A3 | April 09, 2014 |

A celebration of Ghana on Saturday, April 26, in Davis will raise funds to equip a computer room at a village school in Otwetiri (pronounced “oh-che-tree”), Ghana. West African food, music and culture are planned from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

The Otwetiri Project, founded in 2007 by Davis resident Tometi “Tim” Gbedema, is a Davis-based nonprofit that aims to improve the educational environment for children in underdeveloped and developing nations, including the rural areas of Otwetiri in Ghana and Tsiviépé in Togo.

Thanks to support from Davis residents and businesses, The Otwetiri Project has rebuilt a dilapidated three-classroom primary house with a computer room in the village of Otwetiri. Proceeds from this month’s fundraiser will equip the school’s computer room.

Guests will enjoy appetizers, desserts and beverages while listening to lively African music provided by DJ Jalal Dolapo Sanyaolu. Also planned are a raffle and silent auction of art pieces created by local and African artists, gift cards to local businesses and catered dinner parties.

Tickets for the evening are $40 per person and may be purchased from Jan Poole at poolejan@hotmail.com or 530- 304-0656, Toni Smith at tonismith2312@gmail.com or 530-758-9244, Martha Gegan at marfjax@gmail.com or 530-756-8794 or Gbedema at tkgbedema@ucdavis.edu, ktometigbe67@hotmail.com or 530-848-5285.
