Investing in Young People

OKF provides holistic education support for brilliant youth in Ghana made vulnerable by physical disability and financial need.


Our vision is to become Africa’s foremost youth-focused Foundation that helps vulnerable youth to discover their purpose and maximize their potentials.


OKF was established, by Dr Kofi Osei-Kusi, as a vehicle that will invest in young people and create a new breed for public leadership across all spheres. Dr. Osei-Kusi has been involved in mentoring young people for over two decades.


OKF has a Board of Trustees made up of youth development experts, corporate executives and a legal luminary. The Foundation is currently run on a day-to-day basis by an Executive President, a management team, support staff and volunteers.

OSEI-KUSI FOUNDATION (OKF) Nonprofit Overview and Reviews on GreatNonprofits
Volunteer. Donate. Review.
I am a physically challenged person. I completed Ningo Senior High school in the year 2016. Means to further my education to the tertiary level was very difficult but by the grace of God, I met Osei Kusi Foundation and from that day onwards my dreams and aspirations is becoming a reality. The foundation is sponsoring my tertiary education at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Indeed I have a beautiful story to tell. I met the foundation in 2012 during my first year in Yaa Asantewaa Girls' Senior High School. Even though I had successfully sailed through the first term of the academic year, I had no hope of getting funds to continue my studies since my parents were going through serious financial challenges. OKF came to my aid and sponsored my fees throughout my stay in the Senior High School. On completion, the foundation decided to sponsor me at the tertiary level.​
Osei-Kusi Foundation sponsored my education through tertiary. With their excellent training and mentoring I developed talent and skills I didn't know I had. With Dr. Kofi Osei Kusi's books I learnt a lot. Osei Kusi Foundation is really investing in young people with their scholarship scheme for the blind, rural outreaches and many more.
My experience with OKF is amazing! The founder traveled to Uganda to support our Charity, Kalekekasome foundation located in Mpigi. The OKF foundation donated books and visited our Public library.
Imbeleko Foundation in South Africa highly recommends collaborations and partnerships with the Osei Kusi Foundation. Throughout our 2 years of working with this organization, we have been impressed with their unwavering commitment to youth and the quality of their programs.
OKF has impacted my life with their works of charity as I get the rare occasion of meeting very talented young men and women who are not afraid to dream of making a significant change in the world. This has broaden my own scope and perspective on issues in the world.

Our Core Values

What defines us

Wealth Creation

As a wise person once put it, ‘You cannot help the poor by being one of them’. We challenge ourselves to practice principles of entrepreneurship and wealth creation in order to generate funding for our humanitarian endeavours, thereby ensuring our efforts are sustainable.


We assertively reject mediocrity, instead embracing uniqueness, innovation and leadership. We exceed expectations, and seek to reflect the highest international standards in everything we do in an effort to be outstanding as individuals—and as an organisation.


Integrity is the be-all and end-all of OKF; forming the key foundation of all we represent and seek to achieve. We are transparent and accountable to ourselves, our partners, the government and other stakeholders. By upholding honesty, responsibility and integrity, we seek to inspire others to do the same.


We believe in the power of knowledge, and so we are constantly learning to find new and better ways of carrying out our work in order to maximise the use of our resources for the effective achievement of our goals.


We consciously look out for the good in ourselves, our organisation and the people around us. We count our blessings, no matter how few they may appear to be, and continuously appreciate everyone who helps us to advance our vision.


We empathise; we feel the pain of others, especially that of the youth population. Our work is driven by our burden to help those in desperate need for support.
