Edusei Foundation, a non-governmental organization founded by Dr. Kwame Bawuah-Edusei and his family have made several donations to various orphanages and have organized youth workshops in various regions of Ghana, USA and the Diaspora.
To cap it all the Foundation has donated to the Catholic Relief Charities as part of its efforts to broaden their horizon in supporting Ghanaian initiatives and embracing youth activities acros the globe.
The Foundation was started in 2012 and built the basic groundwork with the main goal of seeking youth development and empowering women and children, facilitating college counseling, life survival skills in order to positively enrich their lives.
After the donation, the Foundation also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Catholic Relief Charities, to support the five poorest regions in Ghana, including Upper East, Upper West, Northern, Central and the Brong Ahafo Regions.
Consequently, the Foundation provided a seed money of 50.000 Ghana Cedis. The donation was received by Rev. Father Afriyie, the General Secretary of the Ghana Catholic Charities fund on May 2, 2014.
The Youth workshops that have been organized by the Foundation have successfully rekindled the youth spirit in the United States and it would afford the youth better opportunities than earlier generations.
However, Dr. Edusei’s track record of philanthropy would continue to enhance the growth and empowerment of particularly Ghanaian youth.
Whilst Dr. Bawuah-Edusei espouses positive thinking he has led an exemplary life and despite all the challenges he has kept his integrity intact and continued the family tradition of philanthropy which he started several years ago.
Dr. Barwuah-Edusei wishes to thank God, family, friends and all those who have supported him over the years with full assurance that he is the same person, legal with uncompromising integrity, fiercely independent, and that his endeavors have been by his own initiative.
He intends to continue these noble qualities unabated as a private citizen for the rest of his life.
