Get to know our Foundation

and see how we work

The Omenaa Foundation is a charitable NGO originated by Omenaa Mensah who remains its good spirit. The Foundation’s key field of activity is supporting education in its broadest sense. We support street children in Africa who do not have access to education, but we also help the most needy children in Poland…

Targets of Foundation
Education

because everything Omenaa has achieved in life, she owes to education. When she was a kid, her dad used to say: “Cars, houses, jewellery – you can always lose. What we have in our heads, no one can ever take away from us…

Tolerance

because Omenaa, due to her origin and skin colour, especially in her childhood, experienced many unpleasant situations resulting from the lack of tolerance in the Polish society. Hence, in her activities she attaches…

Cooperation

because as befits a businesswoman, Omenaa sees great potential in business development in Africa. Therefore, her ambition is to help create and strengthen business, social or cultural cooperation between Poland and Africa…

OUR MOST IMPORTANT PROJECTS

and help us bring help

Omenaa Foundation runs various charity projects. We focus our efforts on helping children in Africa, mainly Ghana, but also children in Poland. Our activities concentrate not only on charitable help but also on promoting tolerance in Poland.

BECOME WHOEVER YOU WANT TO BE

“Zostań kim chcesz” (Eng. Become whoever you want to be) is a charity campaign organized by the Omenaa Foundation together with CCC and Eobuwie brands. As part of the project, in the spring of 2022, a unique line of sports sneakers with children’s drawings will be created for children and adults, featuring children’s drawings of their dream professions…

SUPPORT FOR UKRAINIAN CHILDREN

We are currently developing a pilot centre in Konstruktorska Street in Warsaw in cooperation with Mondial Assistance, who have provided office space for the centre. Ashoka Polska is our strategic partner.

SCHOOL FOR STREET CHILDREN IN GHANA

When the idea of building a school in Tema, more than 8,000 km from Warsaw, was born a few years ago, it seemed rather crazy and very risky. But it worked! The Omenaa Foundation found partners to support the project and built a school for street children in Ghana. The KIDS HAVEN SCHOOL was officially opened in September 2021…

SUPPORT FOR POLISH CHILDREN

The Omenaa Foundation also supports Polish children who have access to education, but due to limited financial means, very often do not have the necessary computer equipment. This problem has been brutally exposed by the pandemic. After its outbreak, it turned out that there were computers in children’s homes and foster families, but many kids had to share one…

CHARITY SHOW PROMOTING RESPECT AND TOLERANCE

The Omenaa Foundation is the initiator and producer of a theatre play entitled “CZARNO TO WIDZĘ, czyli wymieszani, posortowani” (Eng. “THE ODDS ARE NOT GOOD, mixed and segregated”) , which touches on the subject of widely understood tolerance in Poland. The play is about important and serious things, but it is a comedy which makes the audience laugh a lot…

EVERY SHIRT HELPS

It’s a campaign carried out by Omenaa and the OMENAA FOUNDATION in partnership with the James Button start-up, which undertook to donate some of the income from each shirt sold to the school in Ghana…
