Nicholas Quansah

Programs Coordinator

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, pursuing 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. He won two championships as captain of Kasanoma FC. Under his leadership as the player/coach of Kasanoma FC, 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 programs coordinator, Nicholas is responsible for street outreach activities, education and wellbeing programs at FOA’s Norviwo Community Center. “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.

  • I was so happy when Future of Africa accepted me again. I felt back at home. Now there is hope to attain my future ambitions.
