The main objective of the Busia foundation is to promote, in Ghana and elsewhere, the principles ofDr. Kofi Abrefa Busia basic human rights, democracy, civic education and good governance that were the hallmarks of Dr. K.A. Busia’s philosophy and praxis.

To do this the foundation seeks to raise funds in Ghana and abroad to fulfill its short-term and long-term goals. Educator, sociologist, anthropologist, politician, statesman, and Prime Minister of the Second Republic of Ghana, the life of Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia was a truly remarkable one.

Born into the Sofoase Yefiri ruling clan in Wenchi Brong Ahafo, on 11 July 1913, Dr. Busia was the eldest of thirteen children. These factors helped shape the path of his life from his childhood to his dying days. The sense of both private and public responsibility that came, so to speak, through his mother’s blood made him dedicate his life to the service of his people.

From his earliest years he was determined to make his world a better place, not just for the fortunate, but for the poor and disenfranchised, and it was a blessing to the nation that the sense he had of the world grew beyond the confines of the family, or even his immediate communities of home and the academy, to include the peoples of this nation, and indeed the world. He became not simply a politician, but a great statesman, and a visionary beyond his time.
