WHO WE ARE
The Ekyirefi Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a vision towards promoting and supporting girl-child education in Ghana to degree levels. It was founded by a staunch Catholic Christian believer who has faithfully served the Catholic Church as a member and a Philanthropist for 40 plus years. In his life, as a Student, a Tutor, a Professional Accountant, an Entrepreneur, a Director, and a Philanthropist, he has witnessed a minority representation of women in all spheres of life and leadership. As a dedication and support to women in the family setting, local communities, town and city development and nation building, therefore, The Ekyirefi Foundation was born. The Ekyirefi Foundation aims ultimately, to make motherland Ghana a better place for our girl-children and women through enhanced education.
As a revered honour, and a spirit-led endearment to the Catholic faith, there is also a special revolving supportive package by the Foundation to the Catholic Archdiocese of Cape Coast.
The foundation is governed by a nine-member team of senior and energetic middle-aged citizens who represent various areas of the foundation’s vision, mission and interests. God leads the way.
