Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen disadvantaged, rural communities in Ghana, W. Africa, through targeted projects in education, health and poverty reduction. We believe the most effective way to facilitate long-term sustainable change is through sustained commitment to the communities in which we work and more specifically, through assistance in educational programming. We seek to facilitate access to education and an educational experience that will promote use of creative and critical thinking skills and engender a desire for life-long learning.
