Our Story

Ghana Cultural Foundation’s  economic empowerment and entrepreneurship program provides financial services and support to Ghana’s low-income youth in America who are inspired to learn technology and other skills so they can create businesses in our communities. 

For some Ghanaians, entrepreneurship provide best way to be economically empowered. And the best part about being an entrepreneur is the flexibility to work and operate a business at your convenience. In fact, with the ever-growing tech start-up market across the world, there are even more resources available for young people to become entrepreneurs, making it easier and faster to launch a business.
