ACCRA, Ghana – Author of the Caribbean Adventure Series Carol Mitchell made a presentation of much-needed school supplies to the students and staff of Christ the King of Kings school in James Town, Accra.

Mitchell, a Kittitian national, is the current president of the United Nations Spouses Association of Ghana, a small support group for spouses of UN employees stationed in the West African nation. The group donated new desks, kitchen supplies, sporting equipment, books and clothes to the fledgling school.

At a small ceremony held outside the school, the author of the children’s adventure series which features Chee Chee the monkey presented the gifts to the principal, Mr. Ashie. She expressed her hope that the gifts will boost the children’s morale and help them in their quest to become contributing citizens in Ghana.

Mitchell said the school was chosen because the group appreciated the fact that Mr. Ashie, crippled from birth, had chosen to make a positive contribution to his society by starting the school. He now has 150 children, nine classes and 10 teachers. Over the last five years he has sent 250 children on to the secondary schools. The author said she hopes the donation will be just the start of more community support for the school, which is doing a tremendous job despite adversity.

The UNSAG group also takes on small projects to assist women and children in Ghana.

Carol Mitchell is just completing work on the third children’s novel in the Caribbean Adventure Series. This time Chee Chee, the vervet monkey who takes Mark, Kyle and Ingrid on adventures in the past, is heading to Trinidad & Tobago.
