Welcome to Anansi!

Anansi is a nonprofit that funds the high school education of students in Ghana, West Africa. Our simple goal is to better the futures of these students and, through their realized potential, the future of their communities and country. Ghana is a developing country, with growing momentum, where access to continued education for underprivileged youth can dramatically change their lives.


Since 2005, Anansi has served nearly 800 students, introduced the artistic traditions of West Africa to supporters internationally, and facilitated volunteer opportunities in Ghana for individuals from across the globe.
