Since its inception in 2015, the Foundation has embarked on several philanthropic activities which include several rural outreaches to donate over GH¢30 000 in cash and kind, funding the surgery of one baby with hydrocephalus and construction of borehole facility for Tom Krom, a village near Nsawam.
Through financial literacy programs and microloans to rural women, they have empowered about 500 women to enable them cater for their needy children.
The CEO believes that we should all have our voice heard in society but sadly that is not the case especially for the poor. Therefore, the Foundation aspires to be the voice for the voiceless in Ghana. According to her, she is deeply passionate about significantly contributing to Ghana’s development by positively changing the lives of less privileged children especially those living in rural areas. Recognitions like this will inspire hope in the Foundation’s beneficiaries and serve as an inspiration to other women to venture into charity work to support the poor”.
