Our mission is to...
1. Assist the children we work with to become the person who they want to be and achieve their dreams regardless of the situations they were born into and raised in.
2. Support the educational, nutritional, and career goals and development of the children we work with.
3. Provide infrastructure and sustainability programs to improve the conditions of our partnered homes and knock out poverty in Ghana one step at a time.
4. Help our children become empowered, driven, and focussed individuals who value themselves and others.
Our vision as a charity is to help raise the next generation of Ghana to be as successful as possible.
Within the first 10 years of operating we are striving to have completed building housing units for all of our partnered homes and schools that offer boarding. In addition we would like each of our partnered institutions to have functioning sustainable nutrition programs. This means every child being served will receive three square meals a day that meet appropriate nutrition requirements for optimal development. We also envision in our first years that all of the children we support will have medical insurance and will receive proper and quality medical care when they need.
Our long term goals include providing secondary education for all of the children we support. Secondary education in Ghana is expensive and with all of our children coming from the poorest communities in Ghana, this is something that will take time. Secondary education will allow our children the opportunity to build a career for themselves beyond farming or sewing-low income jobs that are common in Ghana, but don't provide opportunity for much growth. With the addition of secondary education, these children will grow into adults who will be making more sustainable income, which in turn will allow them to provide for their own families and will contribute to the abolition of child laboring and poverty in Ghana.
