Nicholas Quansah

Programs Manager

Reach Out

When Nicholas’ family lost everything in a fire, people stepped in to help. This experience shaped his outlook and direction in life. In his first year at FOA, Nicholas joined FOA as a volunteer to give back just like he was given. His bright smile and warm attitude made him a natural at coordinating activities with children in street situations and inspiring his peers from Ashesi to serve.

As a Mastercard Foundation Scholar, who pursued a BSc in Management Information Systems at Ashesi University, Nicholas exemplified hard work, academic excellence and leadership. He is a Chelsea F.C. fan and a fine soccer player himself. Under his leadership as the player/coach of the Ashesi football team, he was awarded the 2019 Ubora Sportsman of the year. When Nicholas wasn’t on the streets or the soccer field he could be found in classrooms tutoring his peers in Calculus. “I enjoy the feeling of meeting the needs of people”.

As the programs manager, Nicholas oversees FOA’s core programs and activities. “I believe in FOA’s work because I have personally experienced the growth and transformation. Future of Africa is a lifestyle, a calling, and a family.” He is committed to FOA’s dream to end child poverty in Africa.

  • Children in street situations are desperate to survive, belong, and be seen. We have a sacred responsibility to fill this void with love and opportunities for their growth.
