We envision a world where a lack of educational opportunities does not shatter anyone’s life’s aspirations.

Hope for Education Ghana (HFEG) is a non-profit organization established in 2015 to offer educational scholarships to underprivileged yet talented boys and girls living in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Formerly known as MeReJeD Foundation, it changed its name to Hope for Education Ghana, or HFEG for short, in 2016.

We all have dreams and aspirations to be great, successful, significant, and make a difference. However, not everyone has the same opportunities or environment to achieve their goals. That’s where HFEG comes in. Our mission is to empower and assist underprivileged children in accessing education and reaching their dreams.

In the 1920s, Dr. Kwegyir Aggrey, one of Ghana’s distinguished sons, advocated for Achimota College in Accra to be made co-educational. Dr. Aggrey believed that educating women was crucial to the nation’s development because “the surest way to keep people down is to educate the men and neglect the women. If you educate a man, you simply educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a whole nation.”

With an emphasis on nursing and teaching education, HFEG supports gifted girls and boys alike Ahafo by providing tuition scholarships and educational resources. We aim to produce confident and independent individuals who make informed decisions for themselves, their future families, and their communities.


We envision a world where a lack of educational opportunities does not hinder anyone’s life aspirations.

Help provide every child with the resources they need for higher education to unlock their full potential.

Here are some interesting facts about the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana

The Brong Ahafo Region was established on April 4, 1959, and Sunyani became its regional capital. It is the second-largest region in Ghana, covering an area of 39,557 square kilometers (15,500 square miles), about 17% of the nation’s total land area. 

The Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana has a population of approximately 2.3 million, which accounts for roughly 9% of Ghana’s total population. The child dependency ratio, which is the ratio of children (aged 0-14) per 100 individuals of working age (ages 15-64), is quite high in the region, at about 73%. In comparison, the same ratio in the United States is 28%. This dramatically high ratio highlights the region’s difficulty in supporting its young population.

It is concerning that around 40% of the population in the region, aged six and above, have never attended school. This is particularly prevalent amongst females. Additionally, in Brong Ahafo, only 1% of the population has an education beyond high school, the lowest percentage of any region in Ghana. Females, again, are particularly disadvantaged. Furthermore, laptop ownership is low, with just 5% of the population owning one. 

Over 70% of Brong Ahafo’s population lives in rural areas, with more than half of the working population employed in subsistence farming, forestry, and fisheries.
