The Keta Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting a number of philanthropic and other institutions in Ghana, Africa, and globally.
In Ghana, a primary beneficiary of U.S. donations will be Freedom University, based in Keta, Volta Region, Ghana, which will host students, faculty, staff and alumni who wish to become informed social activists in the battle against modern slavery. This project is funded under the aegis of the Freedom Corps Ghana Pioneer program.
Freedom University will satisfy the needs of scholars and historians to have a slave studies center situated in Africa – the only one of its kind – providing proximity to the epicenter of this inhuman practice, and opportunities for research of slave routes and markets, dungeons in which they were held, transportation to the Caribbean, and more. The Fort Prinzenstein setting provides emotional and physical immediacy for such studies – one impossible to duplicate thousands of miles away. But this is only one aspect of the strategic plan. Freedom University will become Africa’s foremost slave studies and anti-slavery activist institution, hosting teams of Pioneers who, under the guidance of a distinguished faculty, will analyse, propose and initiate projects fundamental to the health, welfare, economic stability and future of Keta, the Volta Region of Ghana.
