In 2010, 54 Kingdoms collaborated with Addicted to African and Caribbean Magazine (ATAC Mag) to launch “Built for Haiti” campaign; a mission that aimed to raise funds to support Edeyo Foundation’s mission to rebuild Joyous Heart School in Bel-Air, Port Au Prince.
Earlier this year, 54 Kingdoms’ CEO and President, Nana Poku and Kwaku Awuah, decided to travel in person to Haiti to spend time with the students at Joyous Heart School and adequately deliver funds raised.
A few months ago, the Stay Classy Awards committee nominated 54 Kingdoms for their 3rd Annual Classy Awards, Philanthropic Small Business of the Year category. As the only AFRICAN owned business in their category (Philanthropic Small Business of the Year), 54 Kingdoms is deemed to make Africa proud.
