BASSUAH LEGACY FOUNDATION (BLF) promotes social inclusion and relieves the needs of single parents and their children. Since being founded in September 2019, our philanthropic vision has focused on finding ways to empower single parent families to build new and better legacies for themselves, their children and dependants. We now have two operating branches, one in London (United Kingdom) and the other Accra (Ghana).

Aims & Objectives

Our Charity has FIVE main aims & objectives that it focuses on to help deliver support to single parents and their dependants:

Meet Our Dedicated Fully Volunteer Lead Team

Here are some of the key volunteers working behind the scene to help our organisation succeed. Bringing in expertise from both their professional lives as well as personal experiences to provide us a strong foundation and help us deliver on our outcomes.

Meet Our Volunteering CEO & Founder

Christina Konadu founded Bassuah Legacy Foundation in 2019 and has been working hard to support single parent families in Shepherds Bush and the surrounding area through these difficult years.

“The families we help have been hit hard by the current rising cost-of-living crisis, this has come on top of the challenging pandemic we faced and added more pressure to the issues that they face. I want to pay tribute to these families for the resilience they have shown in the face of adversity and as a voluntary organisation, to our wonderful team of hard-working volunteers who have made sure that we can deliver the impact that we have made so far. In the coming years, we want to grow as a charity and hopefully start to take on paid staff so we can reach more people and deliver more impact, but we would not be where we are without the dedication of our volunteers.”
