Thank you For your Support

Thank you for supporting children and some of the most uniquely challenged communities around the world. Together, we are improving access to quality education, clean water, health care, and child protection to ensure that children and families living in these communities can thrive.

Sustainable, community-led change is at the heart of everything we do. While we invest in local infrastructure – like schools, clinics, roads and wells – above all we invest in people, ensuring that they have the capacity to lead their own development, today and for generations to come.

Visit Volta

Together we are changing lives in the West African country of Ghana. Volta is a nation rich in history, culture and natural resources. But despite that, more than 50% of Ghana’s citizens live in poverty. But thanks to you we are changing lives for the children of Volta by improving health care and education opportunities, boosting livelihoods and bringing awareness on the importance of gender equality.

With your help, the people of Kita are gaining lifechanging opportunities in one of the most undeveloped communities in West Africa. Children are benefitting from new school builds and educational enhancements, nutritional programs and clean water sources. Pregnant women and new mothers are gaining vital medical information and services, and taking part in loans and savings programs to gain more income and independence. Meanwhile, local men are becoming engaged in – and supportive of – rights-based issues like equal access to care. Collectively, this program is helping the families of Kita improve their own lives.
