INTRODUCTION

Foundation for Economic Development and Educational Promotion (FEDEP ) is a local/community NGO of goodwill poised to work, save and bring joy to many through creation of a new and an improved social and economic order. It was foundered in  July 2009 by Lawrence Ekow Arhin, Theresa Andzewah and Philip Evans Tawiah, with the vision of promoting education, sustaining economic developments, creating jobs to mitigate rural urban migration and reducing illiteracy and poverty drastically. It is located at Kakomdo, a suburb of Cape Coast in the central region of Ghana in  West Africa.

It was registered with the Registrar Generals Department on 20th July 2009 with the registration No. G-28,804 to give the organization necessary legal backing. It was again registered with the Department of Social Welfare on 19th August 2010 with the registration No. D.S.W/4652 to be recognized as Non Governmental entity. Hence certificates of Incorporation,  Commencement of  Business and Recognition were issued respectively.

FEDEP was founded as a result of high rate of illiteracy , poverty, unemployment, rural urban migration, malnutrition and lack of realization of self importance.

Having tasted and attested the power of poverty before, the founders envisioned to wage a lasting war against poverty. The Founders admit, “Indeed poverty is a very bad disease”.

Receiving formal education up to Basic, Secondary and Tertiary levels was truly by virtue or intervention of other people whom the founders always owe them  greatest  gratitude.

It was against this background FEDEP was founded to give back to the society and supplement the efforts of the government to alleviate illiteracy and poverty in the society and mitigate rural urban migration.
