Meet the People Behind the Charities
When the RHF first began working with the Living Faith Foundation in Ghana, providing a safe home for children who had none was our main vision. We began fundraising for a child care centre in 2009, with building work commencing in July that year. The centre will provide facilities for orphans and vulnerable children as well as supporting local families in the town. The centre is now totally complete and we are hoping to have our first children settled in there by Christmas this year!
Another of our main projects is a scholarship scheme. We currently sponsor students in further education that may otherwise not have been able to pursue their education past junior high school.
We also send out teams of volunteers on two week bespoke volunteering trips to visit the children’s centre and offer their skills and help in the town of Santrokofi. It is a fantastic way to experience a new culture and make a positive impact on many childrens lives.
For more information on volunteering and fundraising please visit our Get Involved page.
Established in 2009, the Raising Hope Foundation has been working with the children of Santrokofi, a traditional village situated near Lake Volta. Through our work with a local NGO, The Living Faith Foundation, we are able to provide shelter, access to education and healthcare, food and support to orphaned and vulnerable children.
