ABOUT NADO FOUNDATION

PROFILE OF CO-ORDINATOR

NADO FOUNDATION, a Non-Governmental Organization (N.G.O) was established 22nd June 2008 to cater for the incapable in society. Inspired by her parents who had similar in capability, NAA ADOLEY ADDO, (Ghana’s most beautiful 2008) decided to use her achievement as a platform to launch this vision to provide some of the basic need of the incapable in society.

While living with both parents, NAA ADOLEY ADDO understood the difficulties of persons with hearing impediment as she uses sign language to communicate with her parents.

NADO Foundation is determined at creating awareness and building partnership with government and other organization who share in a similar vision to attract sponsorship for this worthy course.
