The Nduom Foundation has built state-of-the-art community centres for two towns in the Central Region ? Dego in the Gomoa West District and Narkwa in Ekumfi District.The two projects were built by Yorke Properties, the Estate Developing unit/company within Groupe Nduom, and commissioned on Friday, May 8, 2015 by the President and Senior Vice President of Groupe Nduom (GN), respectively Dr. Papa Kwesi and Yvonne Nduom.The Nduom Foundation is a non-profit making subsidiary of Group Nduom that executes corporate responsibility projects and services on behalf of Groupe Nduom companies. The Foundation earns its funds from contributions of the 40 member companies that make up Groupe Nduom.

Speaking at the commissioning of the two facilities, Dr. Nduom said the group holds as its major duty the act of giving back to society, hence the need to provide the beneficiary towns with such a basic need as a community centre.
At Gomoa Dego, Dr. Nduom disclosed that the town is his ancestral home, hence he felt obliged to continue the pioneering give-back-to-society role of his grandfather who built a Post Office for the town.
Apart from the Dego and Narkwa ones, the Nduom Foundation has sponsored the building of community centres for towns, such as Bronyibima and Brenu Akyenim in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem (KEEA)Constituency; Effutu Mampong in Cape Coast North Constituency and Otuam at Ekumfi Constituency. All projects are in the Central Region.
Dr Nduom underscored the importance of education and the need for governments to implement a provision in the 1992 Constitution that says every Ghanaian child should be given the opportunity to go through primary and Junior High School in a national project of basic Free, Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE.)
He challenged Chiefs and elders of the communities to support his crusade, for, in his opinion, education opens doors and opportunities for people to aspire and the potential to meet those aspirations.

The Nduom Foundation has built state-of-the-art community centres for two towns in the Central Region – Dego in the Gomoa West District and Narkwa in Ekumfi District.

The two projects were built by Yorke Properties, the Estate Developing unit/company within Groupe Nduom, and commissioned on Friday, May 8, 2015 by the President and Senior Vice President of Groupe Nduom (GN), respectively Dr. Papa Kwesi and Yvonne Nduom.  

The Nduom Foundation is a non-profit making subsidiary of Group Nduom that executes corporate responsibility projects and services on behalf of Groupe Nduom companies. The Foundation earns its funds from contributions of the 40 member companies that make up Groupe Nduom.

He disclosed that his political party-the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), is currently at the Supreme Court seeking the court’s order to compel national administration to implement the FCUBE to the fullest.

That is an indication of his insatiable appetite for education and it is that same passion that has driven the Nduom Foundation to fund the construction of a dormitory block for St. Augustine’s High School in Cape Coast and to constructing (in an on-going project) an auditorium for the Arch-Bishop Porter Girls Senior High School in Takoradi, Western Region.

The Foundation is also offering scholarships to brilliant but needy children and teenagers right from basic level through to the tertiary level. Each year, 10 boys and 10 girls are selected through a basic selection process nationwide for these Nduom Foundation scholarship awards.

Before their philanthropy was institutionalized as a formal Foundation, Dr. & Mrs. Nduom, for the past 15 years, fulfilled a personal commitment to sponsor students who are brilliant, but from economically-challenged backgrounds through basic school all the way to the university level.

The Groupe Nduom Foundation has funded the construction of a GH¢500,000 dormitory block for St Augustines College in Cape Coast.

The foundation is funded by contributions from Groupe Nduom Companies.

Yorke Properties, the construction arm within the group, designed and supervised the construction of the project within a year.

The project has an Information Communication Technology (ICT) Centre, a study and a teacher’s flat attached to it. The foundation also provided student beds and mattresses for the 120 students expected to occupy the dormitory.

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Mathias Nketsia, consecrated the dormitory before it was officially handed over to the school.

Presenting the dormitory to the school, the President of Group Nduom Companies, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, who himself is an old student of the college, said it was the aim of the foundation to promote and educate all Ghanaian children “so that our minimum educational qualification as a people can become a good high school diploma.”

Dr Nduom, who was the 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP) and is a business consultant, said the foundation had education, health care and cultural activities as its priority areas and was providing educational infrastructure and scholarships for a number of students across the country.

The new dormitory brings to 11 the number of dormitories in the school. It was built in fulfillment of a promise made to the school by Dr Nduom to help decongest the school’s dormitories.

Dr Nduom took the opportunity to recognise the efforts and contributions made by many people with diverse backgrounds to get the project completed on time.

He also appreciated the positive attitude of the headmaster of the college, his sense of gratitude and goodwill, which continues to make it easier for the foundation to support the college.

“It is our intention to ensure that this school dormitory is properly maintained. We wish to ask the school administrators to keep the building in good condition. On our part, we will commission an annual inspection to determine work to be done,” he assured the gathering which included old students of the college.

Dr Nduom also used the occasion to support the idea to return mission schools to their founders.

“In this day where common etiquette, hard work, selflessness and incorruptible behaviour are hard to find in Ghana, more, not less, value-based education with spiritual grounding is needed,” he stated.

The National President of the St Augustine Past Students Union (APSU), Dr Anthony Osei, said it was worrying that despite the increase in the number of students in the school over the years, there had not been a corresponding lead in the facilities available in the school.

The Headmaster of the school, Mr Joseph Cornnel, thanked Dr Nduom for the facility, saying it would go a long way to ease congestion in the school.
