Who We Are
Partnering to build a world where outside charities will no longer be needed
We are a local based charity, operating in Bono and Volta region of Ghana, empowering disadvantaged children to gain skills to maximize their full potential through IT, Education, Healthcare, Social Housing & Community Development. The aim is to build the confidence of the children, enhance their computer skills, giving them higher competency and a foundation for the job market. We care for orphans and disadvantaged children by giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential through educational sponsorship, raising funds towards medical and healthcare cost, social housing – building a new children’s home and community development.
We also provide entrepreneurship skills training to the rural women unemployed to empower them to become self-sustainable and live financial independent lives.

— Our Story
Heritage Charity Foundation was co-founded by a social worker who was born to a poor parent, he became a school dropout at the age of 10 years after he lost both parents to a snake bite. Later, a member in their local church saw the potential in him and decided to support him. Currently, he is a graduate with MBA in Project Management, Bachelor in Integrated Management Studies and Diploma in Social Work. Hs dream is to give back to society hence the formation of the organization with the focus to help the rural poor children and women.
