The Thompson Foundation for Africa hopes to encourage progressive human development on the continent of Africa. Through the creation and direct support of clean water projects, partnerships with educational institutions and enterprises, the creation and delivery of health services and health services institutions, and the support and development of emerging business ventures, TFA helps to insure delivery of solutions to fundamental human needs in a consistent and excellent manner. By encouraging and developing support for existing institutions bringing direct aid to citizens of the continent, TFA hopes to provide stability and respect to those on the front lines of caring for those most vulnerable members of our human family.

MISSION

The mission of the Thompson Foundation is to promote the restoration and development of Africa and the African Diaspora. Beginning in Ghana, TF works to promote education, health and economic development through community based efforts. The Thompson Foundation is also committed to a broad understanding of the notion of cooperation and a broad definition of the idea of family. Specifically, it is important that this Foundation, with a strong establishment in a faithful witness to God in Jesus Christ, also serve in communities that are predominately Muslim. In fact, the first wells built in the name of the Thompson Foundation was in the Muslim community of Larabanga, Ghana, home of the oldest mosque south of the Sahara.

Why give to
the Thompson Foundation?

Since May of 2004, the Thompson Foundation has operated a micro-lending entity. Over the years, it has enjoyed a 95% repayment rate (consistent with the rates of other micro-finance entities) and served, with an overwhelming majority, clients who are primarily women. All of the clients are business owners. The advantage that this microfinance has provided for the families of these women is incalculable. What is amazing is that it has continued to exist in spite of being horrible under-financed from its inception. Only in December of 2005 was there a successful fund-raising effort. At that time, in order to answer the needs of the Christmas rush, $13,000.00 was raised. Other than those monies, this effort has been financed through funds raised locally (repayments of loans, sale of properties owned by Nana Kwasi Agyemang and proceeds from other TF projects, most notable a funded bore hole project) and through contributions given by the Thompson family which represent proceeds from speaking engagements, funeral fees and wedding fees earned by Robert Thompson over the years. Changes in the Thompson family circumstances have necessitated a limitation of those funds. Changes in finances in Ghana have limited the funds available through those sources.
