ABOFREM AREA FOUNDATION PRODUCES AFRICAN MOST BEAUTIFUL USA PAGEANT
Abofrem Area Foundation, Inc. (AAF) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 www.abofremareafoundation.org organization based in the United States. The AAF is the brainchild of Nana Obaahemaa Nkrumah Akosua Adasa III, a Ghanian-American, whose desire to provide the village of Abofrem, her original hometown located in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, as well as the surrounding villages in Ghana and other African countries to get access to food, employment, education, sanitation, and medical needs.
In the year 2019, the foundation proudly constructed a new school building which encompasses Grades 1-5 to benefit the children in the village so that none would be left behind in gaining vital education. A medical hospital was constructed within the village in 2021 to be dedicated January 5, 2022.
