Barely 24 hours after the actress painted Instagram red with racy pictures from her birthday photo shoot, the 28 year old actress posted about her visit to Billaw in the Upper West region (her hometown).
As part of making her birthday celebration memorable, the actress decided to include pupils of her Northern community. Moesha’s decision for going back home to her roots stems from a promise she apparently made as a child to go back and help her people.
She was warmly received and supplied the Billaw School with learning materials like exercise books (which has a picture of her on them) and stationery. In addition to that, she donated some bottles of water, snacks and carbonated drinks.
The actress also celebrated with the children by giving out prizes to pupils who topped various classes.
Her Foundation (Moesha Foundation) was set up nearly a year ago. Since then, the actress has donated to pupils of different backgrounds. She has also quite recently funded some ladies to acquire makeup or hair dressing training.
The actress has, in her most recent Instagram post stated that a lot of people have the wrong idea about her, something she has no desire of clearing it up. However, it’s safe to assume that the actress’ good deeds might be saying more about some other side to her the public doesn’t often see. Also, from her Foundation’s slogan (Every child matters), we see that every child matters to her.

Well there are two things I’ll forever be proud of and continually boast about, that is; who I am and where I come from. Growing up from a sissala home taught me how to value family and education, respect and be hard-working. Compared to other tribes, the sissalas are not talked about often, however, aside been located in Upper West Region we are also known for the xylophone, charcoal burning,farming and wearing smock. Compared to other tribes, you might have heard little or nothing about the Sissalas and so I’ll briefly tell you something about them. Everychild is entitled to education, but it is sad that most of our young ones lack the basic necessities and support to achieve it. I can’t promise to build mountains and castles for these young ones but, I know I can support them with the little that I can and rather push them to value education as I was taught so that,they can build the mountains and castles for themselves. So yes, I’m proud I didn’t forget the values I learnt and gave back to society,especially my people. #sissalas @moeshafoundation #
