We Support Children, Youth and women to Reach Their Full Potential
What We Do
— Child Development
Our innovation, is a development program design to suit children with or without disability and facing numerous challenges in their quest to fend for themselves. We identify these children from their families and support them them with formal education, hope, and a brighter future. Currently, the Foundation is supporting 5o girls and 15 boys both in primary and secondary schools to attain formal education. However, there still many more who need support but due to inadequate resources, we cannot reach them all.
— The Future is Coding
The Future Is Coding project was adopted for the teenage girls of HCF pioneering the way for young people especially women and girls to realize their economic potential equipping them with the technical and soft skills they need to attain dignified, fulfilling jobs and overcome the gender gap in technology.
— Water and Sanitation
With ever increasing incidences of water borne related illnesses, Heritage Charity Foundation in the past eight years has intensified its campaign towards encouraging and supporting people especially PLWDs and other vulnerable children access safe and clean water through rain water harvesting and digging of boreholes. Most people especially in rural areas of Bono region face the problem of poor sanitation and hygiene. Pit latrine coverage is still very low and the majority of people depend on open sources of water for domestic use. This has resulted into water borne diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery and cholera.
— PLAY'In Together
We view sports as a powerful vehicle for social change. By supporting the development of places to play, places to grow and places to learn, our goal is to ensure that children in underserved communities have easy and affordable access to quality soccer and other sporting programs that support their physical, mental and personal development. We seek to assist, grow and enhance sports with a special emphasis on underserved communities. We believe Sports is a vehicle for social change.
— Women Economic Sustainability
Women have been designated as the target group both because they are the most marginalized and because women tend to use resources more productively than men do. That is, they tend to invest the majority of their income in the household and for their children, and they tend to undertake small, manageable activities rather than risky ventures that could bankrupt families. By providing loans to women, HCF expect to see a rise in household income that will benefit the entire family. An additional benefit is that HCF will be empowering a marginalized group by enabling women to have ownership of assets. Hence HCF will work with landless, agriculture labors, marginal and small farmers, micro-entrepreneurs women folks who fall under Bellow Poverty Line. We consider people who lack access to formal finance and support them through our livelihood microcredit.
— Right To Live
The Right To Live program aims to reduce the high mortality rate among pregnant women and infants in Ghana by using innovative technology solutions to improve the local healthcare system. This is achieved by equipping community healthcare practitioners and pregnant women with mobile phones to send and receive important pregnancy and childbirth information in their own language via text and voice messaging.
