PAAJAF’s vision is to be the leading educational center for the youth, women, orphans and underprivileged individuals in Ghana and beyond.
PAAJAF’s mission is to continuously improve the living conditions to those in our community through the power of education.
My name is Philip Appiah and I know the life changing importance of education. I could have landed up as a street hawker like many of those with whom I grew up.
I thankfully did not, because of the education that I had earned the hard way. After completing Junior High school, I traded away four years of my childhood to working in multiple odd jobs, saving money for Senior High school.
Completing schooling was a milestone for me. It permitted me to dream higher, to hope for a future as a professional, and to pursue a diploma course in Accounting. The power of education helped me secure a substantial job as an Accountant and enabled me to gradually yank myself out of a life of scarcity into one of sufficiency.
I know from experience that when children, youth, and women are provided a foothold into education, it opens the doors of hope and opportunities for them. Having seen first-hand that it was possible to exit the vicious circle of poverty, I envisioned this kind of an empowered life for countless others in the community.
So, when Juliet Adusei, a like-minded teacher shared this vision, we started the PAAJAF Foundation together in 2007, to provide education to the underprivileged children, youth, and women of the community.
PAAJAF's journey towards this quest has been filled with contributions of time and money from several benevolent individuals and institutions. It is due to their support that the Foundation has been able to continue its efforts towards community-building.
When you support foundations like PAAJAF, you equip underprivileged children, youth and women, to meet a future that is full of better opportunities, safer, happier and dignified.
