This is an impacting/touching lives project,(headquartered in Ghana) that creates the economic empowerment base for women and the youth through stakeholder participation and social support systems. This foundation is dedicated to personal and professional development, and is borne out of Ama’s passion to be of immense value to all people, especially women and the youth.
Ama, by virtue of this initiative, fights for the well-being of the physically challenged in society and has adopted the “Accra Rehabilitation Center” where the inmates are supported to acquire skills and walking aid and other items such as food are also donated to the inmates through this intervention. As part of her vision and activities, support is also given to the underprivileged ones in society and thus has adopted an organization “Oasis of Love Human Development Centre”, in Ho, the Volta Region of Ghana(which supports orphans and the less fortunate young ones ) and visits made to the institution with donations to these young ones.
