A Better Life for Kids

A Better Life for Kids is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that provides opportunities and invests in the futures of children in need through a variety of means. 

First, we provide assistance to orphanages in Ghana by purchasing life-saving food, medicine, baby formula, clean water, and other essential supplies for the babies and children living there.  Through Eggs for Kids our goal is to give the orphanage children a more nutritious diet by providing a sustainable source of protein (eggs) to them each day.  This initiative also offers opportunities for the older orphanage children to learn farming skills, responsibility, and a strong work ethic by volunteering on the chicken farm.   

Secondly, we fund educational opportunities for orphans and children from families unable to afford the  school fees by providing these children with tuition, school uniforms, shoes, necessary school supplies, back packs, a solar-powered lamp for studying at night, and lunch for each child every school day.  In this quest for education for all children, we are helping to fund the education for twenty-six children, eight of whom are deaf and would be shunned in Ghanaian society without the education in sign language that they are receiving.  These vital skills are allowing these children to communicate for the first time, and will allow them to have a sustainable future. 

Next, we provide tutoring and mentoring opportunities for these children. 

Finally, we build personal and meaningful relationships with the children so that they know they are loved.  

Your support will provide life-saving items and education opportunities for orphaned and needy children in Ghana. 100% of our proceeds go directly to help these children.
