About Founders Initiative

Africans moving to the US have surged by over 1 million in the last 5 years and are fast becoming the 2nd largest diaspora to the US. With over 52% of girls experiencing sexual violence in public schools, 30% 6th grade drop-out rate, and 60% illiteracy rate in Ghana, as they move to the US in increasing numbers, Founders Initiative wants to bridge the gender gap in Ghana to promote a safe education for girls and US college exchange programs to empower women and girls to break the cycle of abuse.

Founders Initiative has 4 core-values: Faith, Educate, Develop, Empower. Our 5 initiatives provide life-changing opportunities for women and girls to receive a free education, create jobs, offer hope in Jesus, have their basic life needs met, and contribute to the economic development of Ghana and the US a in a safe environment.

First, we are planning, organizing, and leading the effort to open Ghana’s first ALL-Girls Primary School in January 2023 to provide not only a safe learning environment, but offer jobs, and a Unique Christian STEAM Education. Also, we continue our 3-times a year critical Christian Outreach and Supply missions for feminine supplies and basic daily needs and offer Dress Making/Sewing Classes. In the future, we plan to expand offering affordable women’s services; along with a US College Exchange Program.

The Fi welcomes partnerships with individuals, foundations, corporations, and grant associations, to bridge the economic, social, and gender equality the gap for women and girls in Ghana, the US, and Globally.
