Andrews (Kofi) Amenuvor

I am committed to the protection of children through education and opportunities to rise from poverty.

Growing up in small town in Ghana with my parents, I have seen the vulnerability that comes from being raised in poverty and not having opportunities for education. I was fortunate to have parents who believed in the value of education, and as i have attended a Teacher’s College to help build up education among children.

In Ghana, over 24.2% of the population lives in poverty at under $1 per day. With schools that are too often underfunded and overcrowded, the need for individual attention, guidance, and encouragement to children pursuing their dreams is key to a brighter future. I am committed, with Rising Roots Foundation, to improving the possibilities for each child in Hohoe, Ghana.
