About PEI


PAAJAF stands for Providing Adolescents and Adults Jobs for Advancement in Future and was founded in Gbawe, Ghana in 2007 by youth activist and accountant, Philip Kye Appiah and a dedicated local teacher. Born and raised in Ghana, Philip Appiah experienced himself the extent to which extreme poverty undermines a child’s access to education and, consequently, the ability to create a better life.

The PAAJAF Foundation was established to provide a range of much-needed support services for children, young people and women who live in the Village of Gbawe, peripheral-urban Accra, Ghana.

PAAJAF Foundation is a registered NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) with a Certificate of Recognition from the Government of Ghana – Department of Social Welfare in Ghana – Certificate Number D.S.W./4003 and Register General G21, 781.
