Shatta Foundation is a Corporate Social Responsibility campaign by currently the most sought after Ghanaian musician, Shatta Wale. The objective is to aid in developing the socio - human capital of Ghana by improving quality of lives of the Ghanaian youth through appropriate and sustainable social interventions in identified areas.

The aim of the foundation is to be achieved through numerous social interventions In the areas of:

Education – Intervention

    Under the Foundation, four projects have been launched

An estimated number of over 100,000 students have benefit from this initiative nationwide.

  • Reading Clinics
  • A campaign geared at sensitizing the younger generation on the essence of education and instill in them a reading culture which will go a long way to enhance their interest in learning. This is to be achieved through a series of exciting Reading Clinics in selected schools and communities across Ghana.


  • Community Talk Sessions
  • This is an outreach programme in selected communities where Shatta Wale together with other resource persons (successful indigenes from those communities) will speak to young people about need to make education a priority.

  • Mentorship Campaign
  • As a follow up to the community outreach programs, the resource persons and other identified persons (preferably residents in the community) will be tasked to serve as mentors to some of the students.
