A delegation of Fifteen(15) participants made up of school children from Ghana have arrived in China to begin a Sports and Cultural Exchange Programme under an arrangement between the Rebecca Foundation and its Chinese partners.
The beneficiaries were met at the Beijing Capital International Airport by Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Mr. Edward Boateng.
They were hosted to a brief reception and taken on a tour of the Embassy and offered some rudimentary knowledge about China by staff of the Embassy.
The Ambassador told the students to be worthy representatives of Ghana, and conduct themselves with respect and civility.
They then proceeded to the Qingdao, where they were met by officials of the Qingdao Experimental School, the venue for the Sports and Cultural Exchange Programme.
The students were drawn from SOS schools in Tamale, Kumasi, Tema, Asiakwa and other parts of the country.
This arrangement represents the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Rebecca Foundation, the Ministry of Education, the Education and Sports Bureau of Lincang and the Qingdao Belt and Road Collaborative Innovation Centre when the First Lady visited China last year.
