In Ghana, the foundation has two arts village sites, Abetenim Arts Village near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region and Sang Arts Village near Tamale in the Northern Region. Each arts village offers 1-6 month project residencies and design-build camps open to all students and graduates of design, architecture, art, engineering and schools interested in rural community projects in Africa. Community arts interns, skilled volunteers, gap year students, career break, and retirement or time out from employment are also welcome to the arts village. Nka Foundation was founded by Barthosa Nkurumeh, an African-born artist of American citizenship, and educator living between the United States and Nka art village sites in Africa. Barthosa Nkurumeh earned a PhD in Instructional Leadership at the University of Oklahoma.
