Chelsea and other Premier League clubs are assisting towards the completion of Christian Atsu’s school in Ghana

Five months after his untimely death, late Ghanaian football player Christian Atsu’s goal of constructing an orphanage school has finally come true.

Christian Atsu tragically died in the February earthquake that devastated Turkey, prompting concerns about the construction of the school that he had been funding for the Becky’s Foundation.

The school, which is located in Ghana’s Senya Beraku neighborhood, was projected to cost £40,000 to build.

Although Atsu was unable to see it completed, the generous contributions of Newcastle United, Chelsea FC, and Everton fans were instrumental in bringing the project to conclusion.

Chelsea FC played an important role by auctioning off their players’ jerseys, with the revenues benefiting the school’s completion through the charitable group Arms Around the Child, for which Atsu was an ambassador.

A recent visit to the school by GHOne found that construction has been completed, and the institution is now ready for opening.

The pupils and Seth Asiedu, Director at Becky’s Foundation, expressed their gratitude to the donors who made it possible for the school to be completed.

When Atsu passed away, we lost all hope and were unsure of what to do, one of the pupils remarked. But by God’s goodness, we were given support from others who enabled us to finish it.

On Wednesday, June 29, 2023, the institution, which will be known as the Christian Atsu Educational Center, is set to receive its formal commission.

This is a big step toward realizing Atsu’s dream of helping orphaned children and creating a lasting legacy in his honor.
