Hope for Ghana is a non-profit tax exempt public charity founded in 2011 whose mission is to create opportunity through education for the children of Ghana. Hope for Ghana is building schools, libraries and computer labs in rural villages, providing hope and opportunity to thousands of Ghanaian children who are hungry to learn, yet who do not have the adequate books and resources for their education and development.
Hope for Ghana is providing access to clean water in remote villages where women and children walk long distances to fetch dirty water. Hope for Ghana is identifying villages in dire need of clean, potable water and drilling water boreholes with pumps to ensure a community’s most basic need while significantly reducing water-borne disease.
It is said that one’s journey to Africa will never be one’s last. A pediatrician in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I will soon embark on my 30th trip home to Ghana, over 30 years since my first trip as a medical student. For me it has been a journey that has redefined my own path in life.
Together let’s change the lives of children, families and communities in Ghana for generations to come. One village at a time.
With much gratitude,
Steve Greene, MD
