Rebecca Foundation


The Rebecca Akufo-Addo Foundation is focused on identifying and implementing initiatives that support the Ghanaian government’s efforts to improve Ghanaian lives, particularly those of women and children.

Helmed by Executive Director Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the First Lady of the Republic of Ghana, the Rebecca Foundation works in partnership with Ghanaian government agencies, the private sector, development partners, civil society and non-profit organizations.

Since its inception in 2017, the Rebecca Foundation has spearheaded the construction of a new mother and baby unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, assisted schools for special needs children in Akwapim, supported numerous orphanages across Ghana, provided resources for children throughout Ghana to access urgent medical interventions, helped improve learning outcomes for children, and provided skills and entrepreneurship training for hundreds of women in Ghana’s eastern and northern regions.
