Giving Back to Society: an overview of the Edusei Foundation’s projects in 2023

The Edusei Foundation continues to support women and youth development agenda through a number of projects and donations against the backdrop of an ever-growing demand for socio-economic advancement in Ghana.

A summary of the Foundation’s activities in the past year covers three major projects and one collaborative venture with other philanthropists with like passion.

Humanitarian efforts by the Edusei Foundation have mostly been directed towards schools, health facilities and orphanages to resolve infrastructural and consumables deficits to ensure seamless operation of these beneficiary institutions. The scope of projects underpins the core mandate of the Foundation, which is to empower women and the younger generation and contribute to poverty alleviation initiatives by the government and other civil society organization's.

Edusei Foundation’s Portfolio of Projects

The portfolio of the Foundation’s activities in 2023 included renovation works and construction of boreholes for Kumasi Academy Senior High School, Yaa Asantewaa Senior High School, Kumasi Children’s Home and Donyina Methodist School.

At Kumasi Academy Senior High School, the Foundation renovated two girls’ dormitories and two bathrooms which were in deplorable conditions. Consequently, the two dormitories received a comprehensive make-over with the repair of walls, flooring and other installments, thus creating a more comfortable and conducive space for female students to rest and sleep after classes. Additionally, two bathrooms were renovated to ensure improved sanitation and hygiene among students.

At Kumasi Academy Senior High School, the Foundation, recognizing the water scarcity challenge faced by the school, invested beyond structural improvements to construct a borehole to provide a reliable and sustainable source of potable water for the students. This vital resource was then linked to strategically placed water reservoirs, thereby ensuring constant water storage and supply to adjoining dormitories and bathrooms. The project was commissioned on 8th May, 2023 by board members of the Foundation.

At Yaa Asantewaa Senior High School, the humanitarian works of Edusei Foundation continued unabated as it undertook some impactful initiatives which saw the rehabilitation of the largest bathroom in the school. This upgrade featured new fixtures, tiling and other repair works to promote better hygiene and contribute to the overall well-being of the girls. The renovated facility was commissioned on 20th July 2023 in a modest but joyful ceremony which was witnessed by staff, students and board members of the Edusei Foundation.

In a separate gesture of philanthropy, the Edusei Foundation visited Kumasi Children’s Home - a haven for underprivileged children - on 5th June 2023. During the visit, the Foundation provided much-needed food supplies and toiletries, ensuring that the children's basic needs were met to boost the morale of the dedicated staff members.

Dormitories at the orphanage also benefitted from a facelift and the floors were fully tiled. This act offered not only essential resources but also breathed a message of hope and support to demonstrate the Foundation's commitment to the well-being of vulnerable youth.

The Edusei Foundation, in collaboration with Mrs. Claudia Amaniampong and Mama Ode Kufuor, extended her philanthropic works to Donyina Methodist School with the construction of a new classroom block and a borehole. The project was conceived by Mrs. Claudia Amaniampong and Mama Ode Kufuor after witnessing a heart-breaking scene of pupils studying under trees. Moved by the plight and sight of toddlers passionately studying under these despicable conditions, they swiftly mobilized resources to construct a new classroom block for the pupils.

Their philanthropic gesture later caught the attention of Dr. and Mrs. Bawuah-Edusei, who, similarly touched, generously supported them in constructing the classroom block and crowned this project by drilling a borehole to provide potable water for the school.

The new school building and borehole were completed and commissioned in a colorful ceremony in April 2023.

Dr. Kwame Bawuah Edusei, a former diplomat with a family history of philanthropy dating back to the early 1920s through his family foundation has built a clinic for the Kumasi children's home, a clinic at Tamale in the Northern Region and engaged in several philanthropic activities in Ghana from his own resources.

He supported the fundraising for COVID 19 relief intervention in Ghana with a donation of $10,000
