‘For The Future Ghana,’ a Ghanaian charity organization, has set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds to accomplish its flagship project dubbed FTF Village.
The FTF Village, when built, would serve as a safe haven that would cater for the needs of underprivileged children in Ghana, including education, health needs and mentorship. FTF Ghana aims to give underprivileged children a safe, happy and controlled childhood, as well as to prepare them for a positive, productive and responsible adult life.
The project was launched on October 20, 2021, at the Accra City Hall; it was graced by former minister of state, Dr Joyce Aryee and the MP for Essikado-Ketan, Hon. Joe Ghartey.
The facility, which would be located at Adukrom-Aprebi in the Eastern Region of Ghana, is expected to be completed within ten years (between 2021 to 2031); and would cost approximately GHC13.4million.
The goal of FTF Ghana for this year is to raise GHC500,000 for phase one of the project, which will go into purchasing and walling the land, obtaining architectural drawings, constructing basic facilities, purchasing a school bus, and commencing the eco-farm.
This, however, has necessitated the creation of a GoFundMe account by FTF Ghana to realize the targeted amount to enable the completion of phase one of the projects.
Donations can also be sent via MTN Mobile Money number: 0595855455 (account name: For The Future Ghana) or via Ecobank Ghana (account number: 1441002365069, account name: For The Future Ghana, branch: Weija).
