Our funding and partnering approach focus on connecting learners with hatched solutions to realizing their career goals through commitment to scholarship, mentoring, leadership, and advocacy.
The Adoo Family Foundation seeks partners in private tertiary institutions and organizations in Ghana that are looking for merit-based opportunities to explore new ventures that bridge the creative thinking of students from low-income families to their career purpose. Our vision is to create sustainable career pathways for overall life success for students and their communities.
Our focus on our commitment to scholarship, mentoring, leadership, and advocacy stems from the fundamental reality that students from low-income families do not have a level playing field like their favored peers to adequately complete and succeed in college and in life.
Without scholarship assistance, low-income students may have an almost impossible chance paying for the degree they need to enter the workforce and become a contributing member of society.
Without quality mentoring assistance, chances for success through professional socialization and personal support to facilitate success in graduate school and beyond may not be possible.
Without leadership development assistance, students may not be fully equipped to set goals as well as organize, initiate, coordinate, direct and motivate action with others as desired at the workplace.
Without advocacy in all its forms – self-advocacy, individual advocacy and systems advocacy – for others in society to have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives, there is the danger of erosion of confidence and self-esteem, making mis-informed decisions, and unintentionally enabling abuse, neglect, mistreatment and exploitation of others, resulting in drops to quality of life.
Strategically, we believe that the immediate and critical needs of low-income students must be addressed. The fundamental incentives and dynamics that cause their educational problems can be minimized through our funding and partnering approach. In the end, our hope is to be part of student success stories as they get ready to pursue professional success and meaningfulness in their lives, relationships, community, and work. Our commitment to scholarship, mentoring, leadership, and advocacy are the driving forces that challenges us to give and partner responsibly.
