    The Otumfuo Education Fund which has been in existence for about 20 years has been a game-changer in the transformation agenda of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II. Although Otumfuo Osei Tutu started off with education, he later expanded his development programmes to include four other thematic areas namely, Health, Culture & Heritage, and Water & Sanitation.

  • Louis Lamis, Head of Culture & Heritage

    The Otumfuo Charity Foundation has empowered many people, setting them up for a better standard of living. The foundation was borne out of the need to do more to help people stand on their own in the Ashanti Kingdom and beyond. Its Patron and Founder, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has immensely supported the foundation which is in its 10th year running. With initiatives like the Yiedie Programme, Otumfuo Education Fund, The Otumfuo Teachers’ Awards, the foundation continues to make impact all across the country.
