Their ideas were to shift the focus from fixing problems and healing the past, to focusing on what we want for our organization, our communities, our country and our lives – and how to achieve it. Enabling poor people to envision and realize their dreams was the approach they called” Dream for all foundation (DFAF).” The Asunafo South District is one of the twenty-two (22) districts of the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Its capital is Kukuom. Asunafo South district was split off the former Asunafo District (which is since then called Asunafo North District) on November 12, 2003. Asunafo South District through Dream for all foundation, DFAF, established its Abroad scholarship called ‘’Asunafo South Abroad Scholarship Program,’’ which was founded in 2017 by Moses Antwi, the founder/CEO of DFAF, to encourage and enable bright and promising young students to fulfill their dreams of entering abroad universities with full scholarships.
