Abofra Foundation

Accra, Ghana, Africa

Abofra Foundation means child. We have two(2) major programs namely: Free Abofra Computer Training and Community Outreach Program.

Abofra Foundation is a registered (CG000492016) local non-profit organisation in Ghana seeking to improve the socio-economic well being of vulnerable and destitute children.The idea of Abofra Foundation was earlier discussed in 2013 with family and friends, established in 2015 and officially registered (2016) by our founder, Kwasi Ampadu. Abofra Foundation has impacted the lives of most children.

The name Abofra means a child in the Akan(Twi) language in Ghana. The reason for the choice of name is that, children are the hope and future leaders of every town, community, country or nation. So the well-being of children are our great concern.

Initially with support from family and friends saw to the start of Abofra Foundation. Kwasi Ampadu and his team are determined to see that every child in Ghana have access to basic needs namely good health, clean drinking water, education to mention a few. The early activities of any child is very important, since is most likely to determine the future of the child.
We believe that the total development of children through activities of health, education and support for vulnerable children will lead to the development of the entire community.

Vision: To help create a better future for the children in our communities through computer training, health care and support for vulnerable children.
