The TEKCHILLS Foundaton was the brain’s inception of COURAGE from a very early age where he gained a great affection for the poor, the deprived, and the disabled. Courage lost his dad at the age of 9 and since then his mother took sole responsibility of his upkeep through primary school to high school. COURAGE began to develop an understanding of the socio-economic lives of people living in rural and deprived communities which were heavily influenced by his surroundings and experiences.
From the age of 22, COURAGE began formulating together with her mother what eventually became the TEKCHILLS Foundation on the 2nd of February, 2015 as an adovacy organisation solely into highlighlighting the needs/problems of rural and deprived communities and finding organisations that could be of help by solving the issues highlighted.
After 3 years of advocating, COURAGE realised that the majority of problems highlighted were not addressed by the organisations that promised to support the communities in solving their problems. Upon deliberations and his continued vision for rural communities, he decided to incorporate the Foundation to give it a full recognition as a Non-Governmental Organisation/Non-Profit and the power to mobilise resources in achieving its goals after the successful completion of his University course in 2019.
After a rigorous process, the TEKCHILLS Foundation was finally incorporated under the Companies Act 179, 1963 (Now Act 992, 2019) of the Republic of Ghana on the 17th day of February, 2020 with the core mandate to empower rural and deprived communities across Ghana to break the cycle of poverty, inferiority complex, illiteracy, and lack of resources that continued to hinder their socio-economic development.
The TEKCHILLS Foundation is also a Sustainable Development Goal focused organisation with strong emphasis on the following goals of the United Nations;
- 1 – NO POVERTY
- 2 – ZERO HUNGER
- 3 – GOOD HEALTH & WELL-BEING
- 4 – QUALITY EDUCATION
- 6 – CLEAN WATER & SANITATION
- 17 – PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS
COURAGE and the TEKCHILLS Foundation’s team are willing to form strategic partnerships with philanthropists, local & international chairty/non profit organisations, and corporations that have strong desire to help & support the growth of rural and deprived communities.
