Actress Moesha Boduong has decided to ‘go back to her roots’ by donating some items to students back in her hometown in the Upper West Region.

Moesha, who celebrated her birthday this past weekend, revealed her donation to the students via social media and elaborated on her motivations for the donation.

The actress is a Sissala from the Upper West region and reveals the plight of her people is not highlighted often enough.

She revealed there is a deficit in education up there due to the inability of some parents to fund their kid’s education and therefore, is doing her best to meet that need.

She said she can’t promise to fix all the issues but would do what she can to help some of the kids.

Despite her notoriety down here in Accra, Moesha deserves some props for her attempt to give back to kids in the area she grew up in.

Well there are two things I'll forever be proud of and continually boast about, that is; who I am and where I come from. Growing up from a sissala home taught me how to value family and education, respect and be hard-working. Compared to other tribes, the sissalas are not talked about often, however, aside been located in Upper West Region we are also known for the xylophone, charcoal burning,farming and wearing smock. Compared to other tribes, you might have heard little or nothing about the Sissalas and so I'll briefly tell you something about them. Everychild is entitled to education, but it is sad that most of our young ones lack the basic necessities and support to achieve it. I can't promise to build mountains and castles for these young ones but, I know I can support them with the little that I can and rather push them to value education as I was taught so that,they can build the mountains and castles for themselves. So yes, I'm proud I didn't forget the values I learnt and gave back to society,especially my people. #sissalas @moeshafoundation #
