The Alice Dede Bright and Needy Memorial Foundation is a non-profit charitable Foundation which supports girl child education at the 2nd Cycle level in Ghana.
The Foundation was established in 2014 by Mr Samuel Asare-Konadu in honour of his late mother Madam Alice Dede (alumina of St Monicaâ€™s Seconday School) and was borne out of a need to promote the education of bright female students whose education was in jeopardy as a result of poverty and other cultural barriers.
Mr Asare Konadu who serves as patron of the Foundation, is committed to making a difference in girl child education in the Ghana as part of his Consulting firmâ€™s (A-Kon Consults Limited) corporate social responsibility endeavours and in gratitude to the difference that education made to his late mother (Alice Dede) and by extension to himself and his siblings.
The Foundation has to date provided scholarships through a rigorous and competitive selection criterion to students of St Monicaâ€™s Senior High School, Mampong.
The Foundation is open to supporting students in other schools and collaborating with other education based charities as a way of deepening its mandate and widening the scope of its operations.
