An intro to Mayekoo: Fundraising for Africa through charity sweepstakes

We believe in the power of numbers, so we invited the global community to participate in a crowdfunding, charity sweepstakes platform that supports essential projects in developing nations. Or, more simply stated, we’re giving away incredible prizes to people who donate to help us build schools, provide healthcare and create environmental sustainability. We’re giving fundraising for Africa a new makeover.


When people have the chance to win amazing prizes while simultaneously helping to support amazing causes, it’s truly a win-win situation. We believe that fundraising this way elicits the greatest response from donors, and ultimately creates the best results for communities in need.


We started in Ghana, we’re now fundraising for Africa as a whole and we plan to support projects across the globe. Our goal is to inspire as many donors through our prizes and stories, and benefit as many developing communities as we possibly can. In Ghanaian culture, “mi ma mo ayekoo,” means “I’m congratulating you.” Mayekoo is both a play on that expression and a salute to everyone who joins us on our mission.

Our promise is shared purpose, transparency and accountability. To ensure our projects have an enduring and meaningful impact, we believe community members and beneficiaries should be part of the process from the start, and that we must ensure good stewardship of resources through to the end.

Why Mayekoo is here to help


Our view at Mayekoo has always been the same: when it comes to fundraising for Africa and beyond, a little bit from a lot of people goes a long way. We’re energized by the incredible potential our charity sweepstakes platform has to harness the power of giving to improve the lives of people in need across the globe.


We are inspired by our own experiences and the incredible resilience of individuals in communities that struggle to meet their basic needs from day to day. We hope we inspire you to join us in improving the lives of millions of people. Mayekoo!
