About Us

Ghana Health and Education Initiative (GHEI) is a non-governmental organization which provides vital health and education programs to communities in rural Ghana. Since 2004, we have created programs around the common goal of empowering marginalized children and alleviating poverty.

Our Vision

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. GHEI empowers communities in the BAB Municipality of Ghana to build that future through investment in children and youth.

Our Values

We believe that all individuals have a right to health and education, and that healthy, well-educated young people have the power to lead their communities out of poverty.


We believe that progress in health and education is best achieved by the community itself. Therefore, we value empowering local individuals and cultivating local leadership to develop and manage all our programs.


We believe that girls deserve the same opportunities as boys, and we recognize the barriers to female success. Therefore, we are committed to investing the additional time and resources needed to close the gender achievement gap.


We believe that implementing high quality programs requires integrity, hard work, and creativity, and we are committed to finding the most innovative solutions, even if it requires challenging established limits.

Our Story

It began with a strong desire to make a real difference and empower people. GHEI's story is fundamental to the way we serve rural communities in Ghana.

Various services being offered by GHEI are advertised in Humjibre.

Our Communities

Our communities boast lush forests, cocoa plantations, bustling markets and vibrant local cultures. Unfortunately, they are also home to poverty. Lack of access to good quality health and education creates obstacles for people to realize their full potential.
