Promoting Global Learning (PGL) and Universal Learning Solutions (ULS) will host a charity ball on Saturday 6 February, 2016 from 6.30 pm to 1 am at the luxurious Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London SW1X 9PY.ULS

This black-tie event, themed the ‘Literacy Drive Charity Ball’, is being held under the distinguished patronage of His Excellency Mr Victor Emmanuel Smith, Ghana’s High Commissioner to the U.K. and Ireland.

The dinner dance gala has as its media partner The Voice newspaper, Britain’s leading black newspaper.

For over three decades, The Voice has been committed and made a contribution to education and social enterprise. The publication was an obvious fit as media partner for this ground-breaking event.

The gala occasion will be attended by business leaders, dignitaries, renowned sports personalities and an array of stars from stage and screen.

The evening’s programme will include a 3-course dinner, cultural performances, dancing to live music and a DJ, raffle draws, auctions and other fundraising activities. Tickets cost £100 and are available at  http://buff.ly/1PzRzIl

The event is raising funds to help transform education in Ghana and beyond through the Jolly Futures programme. The Jolly Futures programme has already reached over 1 million children and been shown to be highly effective in enabling all children to read and write with confidence.  February’s charity ball also aims to help provide mobile libraries to facilitate a strong culture of reading in schools.

The Jolly Futures programme will be implemented in close partnership with governments and will significantly assist them to ensure that all school children acquire the critical skill of reading and writing in their formative years.
