Emmanuel Britwum

Senior Manager, Development

Reach Out

Emmanuel begun volunteering with FOA in 2016 when he was a student at Ashesi University. He always felt heartbroken seeing children begging on the street and malnourished but didn’t know what he could do to help them. When TK begun engaging street children and sharing food, he jumped at the opportunity to support his project since it was finally a tangible way to have a positive impact on a group of people that others ignore every day.

As the Senior Manager for Development, Emmanuel is responsible for forging partnerships with other organizations that support the mission of Future of Africa. He is also in charge of communicating to the world the stories of the street children living in Accra and how FOA is changing their stories.

Emmanuel holds a master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the University of Edinburgh and then a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Ashesi University. Before working full-time with Future of Africa, he spent his early career years working as a business analyst raising funding for SMEs headquartered in various African countries.

Emmanuel enjoys a good road trip with friends and playing board games in his spare time. On the weekend you will find him glued to the television watching football matches.
