The Abiola Bawuah Foundation (ABF), a non-profit organization has pledged its continuous support to promote girl child education in Ghana as part of its “100 Girls Support Project” which seeks to improve the lives of brainy but deprived girls.
The Abaiola Bawuah Foundation after a year of existence has among other things, provided disadvantaged girls access to quality education.
Speaking at the launch of the ” 100 Girls Support Project”, Founder and West Africa Regional CEO of United Bank for Africa (UBA), Mrs Marufatu Abiola Bawuah said her commitment stems from the support she had from few women in her life while growing up.
“ABF supports girls from nursery to the universities and girls with medical conditions as well and all these is to remember and say thank you to the few mothers who helped me to get this far,” she said.
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of ABF’s Board of Trustees, Elizabeth Hayfron Asare, said ABF will not be overridden by the challenges they may encounter but will continue to support genuine needy but brainy girls in Ghana.
To ABF, they wish to support both genders but it is all about the sponsorship and are pleading to all well-meaning Ghanaians to support the initiative.
The foundation has so far committed over GH¢ 100, 000.00 into the publication of a book “Chosen from the Darkness”, which gives a full account of how Mrs Abiola Bawuah defied odds to get to the top.
