The Youth workshops that have been organized by the foundation have successfully rekindled the youth spirit in the United States and it would afford the youth better opportunities than earlier generations.

The Coach Kwasi Appiah on his part thanked the Edusei Foundation for the gesture and mentioned that this donation from an individual confirms the love, support and confidence Ghanaians have in the Black Stars.
Dr. Edusei's track record of philanthropy will be continued for youth development and empowerment of women and children. Whilst Dr. Bawuah- Edusei espouses positive thinking he has led an exemplary life and despite all the challenges he has kept his integrity intact and continued the family tradition of philanthropy which he started even before he became Ghana's Ambassador to Switzerland and later the United States of America.
