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 District of Ghana to build that future through investment in children and youth.

MISSION

 

To enable communities in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Municipality of Ghana to improve their children’s health, learning success and opportunities by building local capacity and providing necessary resources and support.

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 of 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.
