Founding Principles and Inspiration

Raymond Amezado, Rhoda Amezado, and Senyo Sosu co-founded the Fafali Organization on May 10, 2021. While officially established in 2021, the organization derives its inspiration from the Chosen Generation, which was founded in 1994.

Early Foundations – 1994 to 1999: Chosen Generation

The roots of the Fafali Organization trace back to the principles and ideas of the Chosen Generation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by Samira Captan-Chepoo in the Achimota area of Accra, Ghana. Chosen Generation focused on empowering youth and promoting good sanitation. Raymond Amezado, now the co-founder of the Fafali Organization, began his journey as a youth board member of Chosen Generation at the age of 14. His responsibilities included organizing events and encouraging children to participate in sports and educational programs.

Unfortunately, Chosen Generation dissolved in 1999 when its president and sole sponsor, Samira Captan-Chepoo, moved to the USA. Undeterred, Raymond Amezado vowed to persist in his efforts to promote education for the underprivileged in society.

Ngorli Organization – 2011: A Commitment to Education

In September 2006, Raymond immigrated to the United State to continue his education, but opted to join the U.S. Army in January 2007. It was his service in the army and deployment to different countries, including Afghanistan among others, that reinstated his passion and motivation to promote education. As Raymond journeyed through life and countries, he noticed the different levels in education and how poverty and lack of education can lead to major problems in the world.

Raymond recognized the pivotal role education played in empowering communities, especially in war-torn regions. Raymond continued supporting his community in Kissehman, Ghana, and engaged in philanthropic efforts, donating school supplies and sports equipment to schools in need.

Ngorli Organization was officially established on November 7, 2011, with the vision to promote quality education for underserved children globally. Operating in Ghana, the USA, and the UK, Ngorli aimed to make a positive impact, one child, one town, one country at a time.

2021 – Emergence of Fafali Organization

In 2021, Raymond, having served over a decade in the U.S. Army, returned to Ghana to focus on uplifting children in his hometown of Kissehman and beyond. Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Raymond, along with Senyo and Rhoda, envisioned a renewed mission for the organization. Fafali Organization emerged from extensive discussions, combining their passions and expertise.
