We can’t cease to admire the impact Joseph Awuah-Darko is doing in academia and in the creative arts industry.
Last Wednesday, Joseph Awuah Darko donated $20,000 to Ashesi as a token of appreciation for the entrepreneurial support that helped him to jumpstart his career in the creative arts.
“Ashesi has a lot to do with who I am today,” said Joseph, speaking to why he chose to make the gift. “I had access to a lot of people and resources that truly acted as a catalyst for my journey into art and entrepreneurship. All the qualities I have – my work ethic, attention to detail – were qualities I learned from here.”
“And Ashesi affirmed, for me, that it was ok to be different,” he added. “All of this has contributed to my career as an art entrepreneur; I hope this gift goes towards strengthening the resources at Ashesi that support creative work, and that it inspires more students to engage in work outside the classroom.”
By donating to Ashesi University, Joseph Awuah-Darko becomes the youngest major donor of the institution since its inception in 2002.
Easily one of the most significant philanthropic milestones in my life, I am deeply honoured to be the youngest major donor in Ashesi University’s history since its inception in 2002. Long live @ashesi. 🇬🇭⚡️ pic.twitter.com/gOOLSO5IA8
