History

Databank Foundation began as a small outreach to children at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital. This outreach was led by Dr. Angela Ofori-Atta. Angela’s work with the children prompted Databank to start something permanent and sustainable – something that would be Databank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) vehicle.

Databank Foundation was therefore created by Databank Group as an intentional way to actively engage in CSR. The Foundation works to promote education, leadership development and mental health for the vulnerable. The Foundation has a long-term commitment to identifying and addressing the needs of vulnerable groups in our society. Commencing from the 1997 with our social work at the Children’s Ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, the Foundation has initiated CSR programmes such the Young Leaders Mentorship Program (YLMP), the Leadership and Excellence Awards (LEA), the African Leadership Initiative (ALIWA) and the Read Aid Literacy Program.
