The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation (OOTCF) has announced that it has changed its name to the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation (OOTIIF).
As indicated in a press statement, this is in line with a pivotal restructuring that the patron of the Foundation, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is undertaking to enhance social development for Ashanti Region and Ghana.
“The Otumfuo Education Fund, the Serwaa Ampem Foundation for Children and the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation, have together metamorphosed and been consolidated into the Osei Tutu II Foundation with a newly constituted Board of Trustees and Management personnel.”
The newly consolidated Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life of Ghanaians by enhancing access to good quality education while promoting programmes in ICT, tourism, and socio-economic empowerment.
The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation will continue to “consolidate, structure and implement all the Asantehene’s social impact initiatives in the specific thematic areas of education, health, culture & heritage, water & sanitation and some special projects.”
The Foundation also expressed gratitude and appreciation to its partners who have helped to bring progress and happiness to the lives of many Ghanaians.
“The OOTIIF, on behalf of His Royal Majesty, would like to say ‘Ayeeko, Mo Mo ne Adwuma’ to all its development partners who have worked with the Foundation over the years in fulfilling its mission.
“We look forward to achieving greater measurable and sustainable impact with you in the coming years, ” the statement added.
