Akua Akyaa Nkrumah's Homegoing Fund

On June 8, 2017, our beloved Akua Akyaa Nkrumah passed away suddenly.  Our hearts are heavy from the loss.

Akua cannot be described in just a few words. Simultaneously firey and sweet, strong-willed, compassionate, caring -- from the smallest creatures to the world at-large, conscientious, smart, bright, motivated, and passionate. She handled life's challenges with perserverance and grace that inspired others.

As a U.S.-born Ghanaian, Akua called Ghana her home. She loved the people and the land and served both as an environmentalist. Accordingly, she will be laid to rest in Ghana, amongst her friends and family.

We humbly ask for your assistance in giving Akua a proper burial. Any support you can provide is sincerely appreciated. We will provide information about ceremonies in Ghana and Washington, D.C., when arrangements are final.
