In Ghana, students from The King’s School and Tahilah School were treated to a special Christmas party hosted by TFG’s Africa team, who brought with them lunch packs, drinks and gifts of school supplies for the children.
It marked the third year running TFG had arranged a special Christmas celebration for the students.
