How We Received Our Name E-mail Mothers for Africa, the Nana Sekyiaabea Foundation received its beginnings in Ghana, West Africa. The President Nehanda Sankofa-Ra and Vice-president Cheryl Faheem, founders of Mothers for Africa, the Nana Sekyiaabea Foundation began their charitable quest 45 minutes outside of Accra, Ghana in a village named Ahwerase Akuapem.

Nehanda Sankofa-Ra (President) decided to honor her past by legally changing her name in 2001 to Nehanda Nzingha Sankofa-Ra. Impressed by this act, as well as her knowledge and passion for Africa. Chief Semshia Ohene Asah Krofa II an indigenous chief in Ghana, instooled her as a: Queen Mother. He renamed her: Queen Mother Nana Akosua Sekyiaabea I apart of the Asona Royal Family. The family’s crest of the Asona Royal Family is proudly displayed on the website’s homepage.


Nana Sekyiaabea was an instrumental figure in the Chief's village. She was a Queen Mother during the 19th century who left with missionaries for the United States, sadly she never returned. Village tradition states that her descendant would return to Ghana. In honor of her memory, Chief Krofa II suggested that the foundation subtitle be called: Nana Sekyiaabea Foundation, thus, the name.

Once a year our foundation raises money for students from this village to develop and continue their education.
