ATTUKWEI ART FOUNDATION - AAF (NGO) c\o David Anum Doku P.O. Box OS 0904
Attukwei Art Foundation (AAF) is a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO) setting up in the Accra and Eastern Regions of Ghana as charity fostered by the idea that every child should experience art especially in urban slums and rural Ghana using both educational and social approaches. In addition we hope to help children who have been victims of any kind of abuse find cathartic means of expressing themselves through art.
Our main goal is to use artistic methods of teaching to educate children in Ghana about the world we live in today. We wish not only to teach these children about the world itself, but also how to play an active role in society focused on bettering our nation and the rest of the world. Our passion for art has influenced our desire to start a foundation that reaches out to underprivileged children allowing them to experience the wonders of art and what it can do to help them.
Our mission is multi-faceted because we aim not only to teach children about the world around them and how they can initiate change in their own communities; we also want to create a safe place for students to express themselves through a variety of mediums. The Attukwei Art Foundation is an NGO based in Ghana, so our work will be based here, but the focus of the art education would not be limited to one region or area. Our essential goal is to help these children develop a sense of the world and ways in which they, as art students, can help.
We have hosted several volunteers through our program and it has been very successful! Ask us about internships instead of volunteering!
