In Ghana, it is common for school age children to be on the streets working, selling items either because they are orphaned or their families are poor. Often times families cannot afford the school fees, uniforms or books and as a result many children do not attend school. These kids need outside financial support to attend school. Learn Grow Lead (LGL), our US non-profit, has been able to address this need for hundreds of children in Cape Coast. For the past fourteen years, we have been providing funding for school fees, uniforms and books and have built an orphanage for those most in need. Our current efforts afford an education for over 115 children annually and a safe place to sleep, nourishing food and transportation to and from school for 25 orphans at The Shaisiri Home orphanage.
Learn Grow Lead (LGL) is a USA based nonprofit organization actively fundraising to help support the Children's Help Foundation. LGL's mission is to make a long-term impact on global poverty by supporting projects in developing countries that empower young people to get an education and achieve a sustainable livelihood.
The Helpers Farm
The Children Helpers Foundation currently owns 10 acres of land which is being cultivated for the production of vegetable crops and sold in the local marketplace. Other objectives include the creation of jobs for recent high school graduates (CHF alumni) and supplying fresh produce to 17 schools in the government school feeding program.
Please help support our efforts to expand the farm. Our 2018 goal is to raise $17,000 to fund the expansion from 10 acres to 20 acres so The Helpers Farm can become the sole financial provider in 2019/20 and beyond.
