THE STORY:

In order to thrive, young children need cognitive stimulation, good nutrition, and an absence of recurrent infections. To meet these needs, the Ghana Health and Education Initiative is seeking support for our Mother Mentor Program. The program pairs first-time pregnant women with trusted mothers in the community who serve as “Mother Mentors”, working with families through the first two years of the newborn's life to maximize the child’s health and development.

With just $1,500, we can sponsor a family for the first two years of their baby's life, but any contributions towards this total will make a huge difference to the life of a young family in rural Ghana.

We offer a Mama Partner donor's package for any individual, group, organization, or company who contributes $500 or more, with a special, Mighty Mama Partner package available for those who would like to sponsor a mother outright for $1,500.

For further information about these donor packages, or for any other information about our program, please contact Chris at clowe@ghei.org. Or if you would like to donate right away, there's a big DONATE button which just loves being clicked on!

Many thanks for your support,
The Ghana Health and Education Initiative
