About Us

The Mary Sowah Foundation is a non – profit organisation which was set up by Jennifer Naa Dedei Opare-Aryee in honour of her Grandmother, Madam Mary Sowah. Mary Sowah was born in Accra, Ghana in West Africa in the early 1930’s. As a young girl growing up in the 30’s, Madam Mary Sowah was unable to complete her education due to her father’s belief that a “woman’s place is in the kitchen”.

She tried to complete her education but this was not possible without the financial backing and support of her father. Until her sudden death on 9th December 2017 she remained passionate about education and through her endless acts of sacrifice she ensured that her children, grand children and great grandchildren had access to good education.
