The founders of PUREAIDE, Ken and Marie Allen first visited Ghana in 2007. The Allen's were impacted by the number of children who were on the streets especially during the school day, peddling, asking for money or books, . Hosted by their Ghanaian/Canadian friends Louis and Elizabeth Anane, the Allen's had opportunity to partner with the Faith Community Church in Kumasi and Kyekyewere, Ghana, in support of the community.
With each trip to Ghana, friends of the founders would consistently provide additional school supplies, clothing and monetary donations for the communities in Kumasi and Kyekyewere. Out of the inspiration of their supporters in Canada, the founders decided to create a formal support system by means of a charitable organization.
The founding directors in alphabetic order are: Ken Allen, Louis Anane, Patrick Bastien, Colin Campbell, Dr. Richard Dubler, Dr. Edith Lorimer, Beverley Smith and Bernard Wilson.
