Broken for use


“Broken for Use is a moving, intimate memoir which takes you on a truly tumultuous journey with Rev’d Akua. By the time you complete the journey from her early days in school, through the various turns in her life that finally bring her to the priesthood, you feel as though you have experienced many lifetimes. She tells her story as it is, straight and unadorned.


‘A gripping story of a Middle Class Ghanaian girl’s journey from an angst-ridden childhood, through a riotous and bare-knuckled struggle to professional excellence and to an Anglican priest, told with remarkable candour. Reverend Akua manages to hold the attention of her reader by enlisting you as part of the story she is telling and she doesn’t let go till the very last page.’ – ELIZABETH OHENE – Journalist, BBC Africa Service.

Rev. Akua Ofori-Boateng is an Anglican priest and is the Founder of Aequitas, a faith-based foundation which seeks to transform lives by infusing the love of Christ into social imbalances.


Pain and shame affect us all. It can be the pain from the death of a loved one, or the shame we experience by virtue of our own failure and sin. Whatever the cause, we can all identify with pain and shame at some level and it can feel like we have been broken.
