ABOUT THE NGO
No matter how simple the effort or how large the cause, we believe in restoring hope and advancing minds. We promote charitable giving and humanitarian work among the youth by selflessly supporting the act of giving back. We have a commitment to providing sustainable healthcare, education and empowerment opportunities to rural and overlooked communities in need.   


PROJECTS DETAILS
This NGO helps deliver education to children in need by providing a free primary school. Through local partnerships, this NGO has provided children that have been left out of the existing Ghana educational system with a safe space to learn and play. Today, more than 105 students attend this primary school that hopes to launch a mushroom and livestock farm to help provide vocational opportunities to women in the village, and to continue to facilitate courses in English, math, and geography.   \
