“KGL  is focused on youth empowerment, youth entrepreneurship, health and sports, arts and culture, and the main aim is to change the way philanthropy is done in this country. We really want to innovate the current system, we want to empower the youth at the centre of it because we believe the youth are the centre. They have the potential to fix all the issues that we see in Ghana today,” he told Ameyaw TV.

Mr Dadey, who joined the group as the C.E.O to spearhead the affairs of the foundation added that he and his team’s focus is to involve the groups they help and make them the centre of it.

“I came on board with a singular goal and that is  really put the people you want to help at the centre of everything. They’re so many foundations that come to help people but fail to focus on the group and their needs. We collaborate with the groups we help, we don’t just give them money,” he added.

Listing some of the projects the foundation has embarked on so far, Mr Dadey was super proud of the work they have done in partnership with the Ghana Football Association to redo the juvenile league.

In response to source of funding for the foundation, Mr Dadey stated that the mai. source was from the KGL Group, however, the foundation is open to partnerships.

“Our main funding is primarily from the KGL Group but we’re open to accepting partnerships and funding from other sources,” he added.

The Programs Manager of the Foundation, Nii Sarpeh, expressed the foundation’s need to improve lives and provide support where needed.

“For us as a foundation, we want to carve a niche for our society. We want to see people’s lives improved, and that means we need to identify vulnerable, disadvantaged, and marginalised people in the society and provide support. We want to improve people lives,” he stated.
