We want to end poverty and illiteracy in our community by providing programs that will contribute to better life opportunities.

PAAJAF is a small but very ambitious NGO. Our objective is to end the cycle of poverty that perpetuates in Ghana through educational programs for children, youth and adults. The organization’s main purpose is to provide quality education not only for underprivileged children and youth, but also to extend the programs benefit to their families.

We believe that education is the only permanent answer that will enable entire communities to fulfill their dreams with dignity.

“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.”

– Philip Apiah, PAAJAF CEO
