Otumfuo’s charity foundation changes name
The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation (OOTCF) has announced that it has changed its name to the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation (OOTIIF).
According to a press statement, the name change is in line with a restructuring that the patron of the Foundation, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, is undertaking to enhance social development for Ashanti Region and Ghana.
“The Otumfuo Education Fund, the Serwaa Ampem Foundation for Children and the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Charity Foundation, have been consolidated into the Osei Tutu II Foundation with a newly-constituted Board of Trustees and Management personnel.”
The newly-consolidated foundation seeks to improve the quality of life of Ghanaians by enhancing access to good quality education while promoting programs in ICT, tourism, and socioeconomic empowerment.
“The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation will continue to “consolidate, structure and implement all the Asantehene’s social impact initiatives in the specific thematic areas of education, health, culture & heritage, water & sanitation and some special projects” the statement read.
The Foundation also expressed gratitude and appreciation to its partners who have helped to bring progress and happiness to the lives of many Ghanaians.
“The OOTIIF, on behalf of His Royal Majesty, would like to say ‘Ayekoo, Mo ne Adwuma’ to all its development partners who have worked with the Foundation over the years in fulfilling its mission.”
The Otumfuo Osei Tutu II charity foundation, located in Kumasi, Ghana, seeks to improve the lives of Ghanaians by implementing the ideals, values and visions of its patron and thereby use this medium as a vehicle in the transformation of Africa.
The foundation has programmes that address health care, technology and water.
It works towards enhancing access to good quality education through rehabilitation and provision of ultra-modern education facilities and equipment.
