At Ghana Health and Education Initiative, we envision a future where children – free from illness and illiteracy – can realize their full potential, a future where healthy, educated young people will lead their communities out of poverty. Our health and education programs work hand-in-hand to achieve this vision. Whether preventing childhood illness or promoting learning success, we are committed to finding the most innovative solutions to the health and education needs of our communities, even if it challenges established limits. Our success if firmly rooted in the idea that local capacity leads to sustainability, which is why we recruit, train, and employ people directly from the communities where we work. We invest in our local team for the same reason we invest in the children and young people we serve: we believe that to invest in an individual is to empower a community.
