The Sarah Fanaah Kuffuor Foundation
GONE TOO SOON!Sarah was a member of the Ghanaian Women’s Association of Georgia. (G-WAG) a 501C Charitable Organization committed to Improving Maternal Health in Protecting Mother & Child.
Sarah attended The North Metro Pre school at Oakland and Suwanee Elementary Schools. She was loved and nurtured by her teachers, Mrs. Sue Nelson, Mrs. Susan Benjamin, Mrs. Dara LeValle, Mrs. Glenda Grant, Mrs. Elaine Coppola, Mrs. Kathy O’Rear, Mrs. Julia Sarnowski, a very special couple, Mr. Rick & Ms. Cher Austin. A host of Para-Professionals and Special Ed Bus Drivers.
Sarah attended Richards Lanier Middle School, where she lamented, “mom, Middle school is long and hard, I don’t like it, end of story”. While she wasn’t a fan of Middle school, she fully bloomed at North Gwinnett High School, as a socialite, community skill loving, chorus singing and Fundraising selling young lady. After graduating in 2008, she continued on in ADAPT, at the MONARCH School in Duluth where she flourished as a businesswoman making and selling coffee and donuts to the staff at the school.
Following many years of association with The Ghanaian Women’s Association of Georgia (GWAG), Sarah Fanaah Kuffuor registered to become a member on March 7th 2020 during the monthly general meeting. Sarah was an amazing friend,sister and daughter who touched the lives of everyone she came into contact with. She was one in a million, and a true inspiration. Her infectious smile always lit up the room, and the truths she spoke would always fill the room with laughter.
Sarah never looked at herself as disabled, but rather ABLE. She was able to live her life fully accomplishing her wildest dreams successfully. Shortly after graduating High School, Sarah went to seek employment, but was turned away being told she was “too disabled”. As discouraged and hurt as she was leaving the job fair she never looked back on these hurtful words. Instead she used this as fuel and this became her motivation into becoming an entrepreneur. She opened up her own store selling African goods, and once that quickly came to an end, she researched how to make the perfect Shea Butter Cream.
She was constantly bouncing ideas around for starting her own business and finally found her happiness being successful with her Etsy page selling her Shea Butter! check her out on: https://www.etsy.com/shop/africansheaandcraft
She was a successful entrepreneur with a relentless pursuit of perfection and serving of happiness on the side. Sarah never met a stranger, was a friend to ALL, loved being around others, had the most beautiful and infectious smile that lit up the darkest of rooms. She had the patience of a SAINT, who never had a bad day. She would repeatedly tell her mother, “mom, my life is perfect”.
Sarah listened with care and talked with wisdom. She was always busy helping others and making them feel special. Sarah had a unique gift and drive for being an entrepreneur. We need to live our life to the fullest just like Sarah did and never allow challenging obstacles stop us from accomplishing our biggest dreams. We need to love one another unconditionally, the most valuable lesson Sarah was taught by her parents. When days get tough, we need to remember to continue to smile and be the light in the lives around us. Sarah loved everyone unconditionally, never judged anyone, and passed away peacefully into the arms of our Lord living her life to the fullest.
She was determined and her perseverance was like no other. A true child of God, who was blessed with all the nine fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self control and gentleness. As heartbroken as we are, it is up to us to continue Sarah’s legacy. Sarah was a member of The Ghanaian Women’s Association of Georgia. (G-WAG) a 501C Charitable Organization.
