Imagine having the ability to succeed in an academic field, but not having the financial support to enter or complete college. The goal of the Joseph & Elizabeth Quansah (JEQ) Foundation is to reach as many deserving students in Ghana as we can, to help them on their path to higher education and realize their potential.

​Many students in Ghana have the intelligence and resilience to succeed in their studies and become doctors, teachers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and so forth. But their families cannot afford the tuition and are unable to borrow from private lenders or the government.

College & University Cost in Ghana
Application fee - $50 - $50

Tuition - $500-$1,500 per year

Housing - $400-$700 per year

Laptop - $500

While their families in Ghana cannot meet these education costs, many U.S. donors can. Your tax-deductible contributions can help lift these bright young minds and their families out of poverty.
