Support Team

Over the years we have brought several project facilitators on board to help us carry through specific objectives. Meet some of them here:

Abiko Eghagha Bremer Abiko Eghagha Bremer is the founder and director of General Media Solutions, combining creative work with entrepreneurship in the fields of television, film production, performance arts, and community development.  Recognized internationally through the British Council as a young performing arts entrepreneur, she has been part of our Mmofra family from the start.  She was the project manager for the 2006 Efua T. Sutherland Theatre Festival and the 2006-2007 Reading Clinic. Abiko continues to work with us in many ways as a consultant and collaborator.
Core Volunteer Ama Buabeng Presenting at Mmofra Language Club Adeline Ama Buabeng (Auntie Ama) has won national and international accolades in her long career as an actress, storyteller, cultural expert and performer in the Ghanaian popular theater tradition. Her work has taken her to Nigeria, the Ivory Coast, the United Kingdom and the United States. She is featured in the essay collection African Theater: Women. Auntie Ama has been an invaluable cultural facilitator  in our Language Club sessions, instructing children in the arts of storytelling, using proverbs, and traditional dance.
Mmofra Sankofa Bird T-Shirt Design Sample Alf Bremer is an urban planner from Berlin, Germany who has traveled and worked for periods of time in Ghana since 1997. In Berlin, Alf works in the field of urban renewal, and in Ghana he’s involved in various projects from community development to archiving and documentation.  Sponsored by the Goethe Institut Accra, he led training workshops involving the Willis Bell Archive Project from 2005 to 2009,  collaborating on exhibitions as well as the photo essay Ghana Through the Lens.
Mmofra volunteer Rachel Phillips Rachel Phillips has grown up with Mmofra Foundation in many ways, from providing the voice-over conclusion to Tahinta! at the age of 8 to implementing a cataloging system for book donations as an intern. After studying history of science and medicine at Yale University, Rachel continues to contribute to the foundation through design work, creative product development and strategic planning.
Members of the band Adehyeman Group The Adehyeman Group is made up of master percussionists Akwasi Asante, Kwabena, Major Ntow, Emmanuel Okyere and the talented dancer Florence Larbi. We were very sorry to lose master drummer Michael “Gayoyo” Agbayiku in 2008. The group anchors the traditional cultural component of our Language Club programs and is featured in the rhythm play Tahinta!.
