EN – About Us

After Lola’s gap year and several trips to Ghana it was clear that we wanted to do more and actually mean something to children and young adults in the south of Ghana. Therefore, our charity is aiming for providing projects that has a relation with education, care and housing for children and young adults. With these projects we stimulate self-reliance within the community and eventually reach a state of self-sufficiency. Over the last few years we helped, guided and housed many children and young adults in order to let them achieve an independent and happy future.


We are giving children equal opportunities for personal development, independence and self-sustainability


This year on providing safety and stability when we support temporarily housing children and young adults.
