Mission Statement
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization registered in both Ghana and the United States. We believe that simply throwing money or donations at the problem is not the answer. In order to create change, we believe we must empower the people to make change for themselves. Our programs are aimed at developing communities, and developing leaders, so that real change can begin. We are building a home to rescue trafficked children, providing educational opportunities for women and children, and supporting the local clinic with medical volunteers.
