Ghana is particularly a poor country. The Gross National Income (GNI) is, for example, more than 10 times lower than that of Argentina. Despite these unsatisfactory numbers, the exceptional progress that the country recently made reducing poverty should be noted.
While making the reduction of poverty one of its priorities, the government became a considerable and exemplary success in the heart of the African continent but other issues still pose a threat to the young lives of Ghana.
You at Heart Foundation and Teach for Growth
With gratitude to our local partnerships, the Desire to Inspire Foundation is able to help bring sustainable change and growth to these communities. We are bridging the gaps between rich and poor, gender inequality and human rights.
Clean Water, Health
- Drilled boreholes in Nzelezu, Megina and Kasoa (coming December 2020) providing clean water for thousands.
- Built a Sick Bay providing the village of Nzelezu, and surrounding communities, with a much-needed medical facility as the previous access to any basic medical services were hours away.
- Provided extra classes for students at Savior Childrens Foundation in Kasoa. All students passed their secondary school exit exams because of the extra tutoring.
- Performed health screenings to check for malaria, diabetes, general wellness for thousands in many villages across Ghana.
Bringing Love and Joy
We have delivered over 1500 “Little Books of Be…” to share our messages of love and inspiration with children in several villages across Ghana. We have personally volunteered at Savior Childrens Foundation in Kasoa teaching, playing with, nurturing, and loving all of the children there.
Since 2017, we have been collaborating with the You at Heart Foundation to bring medical services to those who are at risk of Malaria, Tetanus, physicals, breast screening and other diseases that threaten the lives of this community.
Funds that we have raised has allowed us to complete life-changing projects like providing clean water for an entire village.
By providing education and training, we are giving the children of Ghana the tools needed to enrich the community and build a sustainable future.
Close to 30% of births are not officially registered. As a result, these children don’t have an official identity or a nationality. With the right education and proper health screening, these children will be able to ensure their identities and build a thriving community.
