GUBA Foundation > About Us

It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a child with autism to raise the consciousness of the village

About Us

GUBA Foundation is made up of a group of professional volunteers who run a non-profit organisation (Charity registration No: –1149303). It has been established to support the Ghanaian and African communities in the UK and abroad on issues around disabilities, health, educational attainment and the relief of poverty. Its main aim is to provide support, training, guidance and to build awareness where there is a need for it within the Ghanaian and African communities.

GUBA Foundation’s current campaign is called ‘Autism; I am not a Stigma’. The Campaign aims to:

  • Connect families living with autism within the community to each other, encouraging networks of support.
  • Deliver culturally sensitive autism training and provide awareness to the specified community aiding in the reduction of stigma.
  • Provide support and guidance to parents and carers by connecting them to services that can help.

Message From Founder

The seed that birthed the vision for GUBA Foundation was sown whilst organising the GUBA Awards. We were recognising talent within the African community and realised that although there are many achievements to highlight, there are also many needs to address. For example health, disability, education and poverty needs. As a foundation we want to do what we can to try and meet some of these needs. We want to provide awareness, support and guidance to families, create strong connections encouraging community cohesion, and ensure that the community have access to the services that they require.”
