We are the family of Jemimah Anama Noonoo. In honor of the love and respect we feel for Jemimah, we came together one year after her passing, to carry on her dream of developing a charity that would supply resources to the coastal village of Anomabu, Ghana.
WOMEN ARE CENTRAL
TO COMMUNITY LIFE, HEALTH, EDUCATION AND ACCESS TO FOOD.
The overall impact of women in the Ghanaian society has been momentous. The social and economic well-being of women as mothers, traders, farmers, and office workers has evolved throughout centuries and is continuing to change in this modern day.
MEET THE BOARD
The Jemimah Noonoo Foundation Board of Directors is made up of recognized leaders across many areas of expertise. They represent diversity and contribute significant amounts of time, talent, and energy to further the mission of the organization.

EDUCATION IS THE KEY
a higher quality EDUCATION CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
At present, roughly half of all students fail their basic education completion exam and roughly 70% drop out before obtaining a high school diploma. For those students who do complete school, many are ill-prepared to find employment or seek further education.
This decline in the quality of education is reflected in the decline in the percent of trained teachers in primary education.

CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
Ebenezer Noonoo is the younger brother of Jemimah. A native of Chicago, he was a four year Divison I basketball player at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His role on the team was acknowledged, upon graduation in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. The Men’s Basketball program announced it was permanently naming its post-season Spirit Award to the “Ebenezer Noonoo Spirit Award.”
There, Noonoo began his career off the court, as a Player Liason, recruiting professional basketball players for a Chicago-based sports agency. A year later he joined a Chicago Public School as an Athletic Director and Head Basketball coach.

He also coached the highest level elite players in the region.
The crowning achievement of his time in Dubai came in the summer of 2014 when he created and produced a global basketball tournament hosted by MPAC that saw four top ranked American high school teams, including Chicago’s Simeon Academy, travel to Dubai to compete against the best the UAE had to offer.
