It is impossible to convey how profoundly the energy and passion of our international volunteers has impacted the lives of women in Ghana. Our Mamas are unique and their accomplishments over the years have varied from supporting their children through all levels of school including university, paying off debts, opening savings accounts, expanding their businesses, improving the nutrition and health care for their families, and most importantly, feeling empowered and valued. We are proud of our success and invite you to be a part of shaping our future.
