Westchester County Chapter Of Link, Inc partners Voices Of African Mothers Outreach Project

The Westchester Chapter of Link, Inc, a charitable organization in the United States of America (USA) has partnered Voices Of African Mothers (VAM), an NGO based in the African diaspora helping to bridge the gap between the poor and the rich in its outreach project this year in Ghana.

The project was initiated by Westchester Chapter of Link, Inc prior to the wonderful performance and heart touching initiatives such as donations, women empowerment, health care delivery and educational scheme Voices of African Mothers (VAM) has embarked on over the years.

As part of Westchester Charter of Link Inc plan to give away to the needy, the organization instituted a fund raising plan known as the Baby Shower Project. The project with the aid of its good memberships has now presented items to be donated to the Mampong Babies Home in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

Items received from the Westchester Chapter of Link Inc includes, clothing, blankets, beddings and non-perishable food items.

The founder of Voices African Mothers also hinted that she has so far spent $ 4, 000 on consignment of the items donated to her organization by the Westchester Chapter of Link, Inc and this shows they have really donated much to our organization.

Speaking to the media, Nana Fosu Randall the founder and President of Voices of African Mothers expressed much appreciation to Westchester Chapter of Link Inc, and the international Director of the organization Judge Delores Scott Brathwaite of Town of Greenburgh effort to eradicate poverty in the society.


With the help of various institutions and donors, Voices of African Mothers (VAM), one of the regular supporters of the Mampong Babies Home early this year donated to the Home. The donation was aimed at aiding the Babies Home to cater for the poor children whose parents have abandoned them or passed away.

Items donated to the Home comprised cooking oil, boxes of soap, bags of rice and boxes of tin fish including clothing from Westchester Chapter of Link Inc.

Donation by the Voices of African Mothers to the Home is one of the consistent aid they experience.

This year’s donation brought great happiness to the Home as delegation that joined Nana Fosu Randall took the opportunity to have fun and socialization with the kids.

The items were presented to the Home by a delegation led by Nana Fosu Randall the founder of VAM and John William Montessori School. Teachers of the School and some Elders of Mampong community were also present.

Cornel University Students led by Dani and Anamika Goyal also accompanied Nana Fosu Randall to make the donation to the Babies Home.

“ I am pleased to make this donation to these children to help the Home dramatically accelerate their vision to achieve total development of each child in the society and around the world”. Nana Fosu Randall stated.

She also hinted that there is more to come this year as the Westchester Chapter of Link, Inc organization has donated almost a full container of items to help the good job of Voices of African Mothers.

Receiving the items, authorities of the home thanked Nana Fosu Randall for the great support and heaped a lot of blessings on her.

“I want to take this opportunity to show appreciation to the first lady of Equatorial Guinea, Mrs. Constancia Mangue Nsue de Obiang for the great support she has offered me in all outreach programs Voices of African Mothers has embarked on. She has been such a great patron of the organization for the past three years.

Because of her contribution my organization has been able to reach a lot of voiceless children in the society”. She added.

“The first lady of Equatorial Guinea is a very good friend of mine and also a patron of VAM therefore everything I do in the name of my organization, she is part of it. May the lord bless her”. She clearly stated.

Recently there are ten (10) Equatorial Guinean children studying at John William Montessori School being sponsored by the first lady. They are also enrolled on private classes four times a week to accelerate their learning abilities.

With the hard work of teachers in the school, these children have improved massively in all their studies.

It is marvellous to see them speak and write both English and the Ghanaian language as well. Young as they came to Ghana, they have grown beautifully and are very responsible and respectful.

Four (4) amongst them are in their final year and are expected to write the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) slated June this year.
