Welcome to Cheerful Hearts Foundation
You are warmly welcomed to Cheerful Hearts Foundation. In the following pages you will find information regarding our organization, its projects, Internships and Volunteering programs.
Cheerful Hearts Foundation believes on a principle that together we can build and give opportunities to organizations, donors and individuals who are willing to contribute and improve the livelihood of rural communities in Africa. We believe that the little effort of any individual or volunteer will help change the lives of some children, youth, men and women in the under-developed world.
Our main mission is to provide assistance or support to rural community development needs in Africa geared towards the achievement of the millennium development goals set by the United Nations.
We are based in Ghana, a very peaceful country in West Africa with lots of challenges to its development. Ghana faces problems in areas such as: poor health and health facilities, insufficient Educational resources (human resources and materials), HIV/AIDS pandemic, Malaria, Tuberculosis, inadequate or lack of drinking water, poor communications and attitude (over reliance on government support or foreign aid for development, culturally inherited superstitions), and in certain areas children cannot go to school due to financial difficulties.
Taking into consideration all these challenges and knowing that the government cannot solve these challenges alone, we believe the involvement of the private sector in the quest for development would greatly assist those individuals and communities affected. Our love and strong desire to influence and improve people’s lives brought about the establishment of Cheerful Hearts Foundation.
