Reach Out

A very personable leader and an advocate for Ghana’s most neglected and vulnerable children, TK is committed to building an organisation that solves difficult social issues, and redefines African leadership.

Today, Future of Africa is a highly reputable Ghanaian NGO with an extensive reach and impact. Its vision is an Africa where vulnerable children and youth are protected from abuse and equipped to realise and contribute their created potential. Under TK’s leadership FOA has evolved from a campus club in Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo Canada, to a growing Ghanaian youth movement transforming the lives of vulnerable children in street situations. Its programs have improved the lives of more than 100 children and their families, and impacted over 60 passionate university students.

A strong believer in relationships, TK can be found every week in the streets hanging out with children in street situations or mentoring university students.

  • I made friends easily on the streets because I am very friendly. They taught me how to survive on the streets and engage in bad things.
