On December 31, 2013 the Savior Children Foundation was forced to relocate. The current location of the orphanage has undergone a major transformation. In a matter of months, with the help of donations, volunteers, and lots of hard work the orphanage has managed to build a school, functional showers and toilets, a kitchen, and a new dormitory for the orphans.
As an NGO we rely heavily on the generosity of donations and volunteers. 100% off all donations go toward the ongoing needs of the children and improvements of the orphanage.
Short Term Plans
Complete work on the school
Build a library for the students
Purchase a school bus to provide necessary transportation for the children
Long Term Plans
Currently, the property housing the orphanage is leased. The ultimate goal is to purchase a plot of land to ensure the long term sustainability of Savior Children Foundation. Once the foundation is on it's own land we can invest in livestock, plant cash crops and also purchase a fish farm. All of these would provide an ongoing source of food for the children and will also act as a means of income.
We aim to establish a scholarship program for the older orphans to ensure they continue to receive a good education past Junior High 3, provide health care plans for teachers and all staff and create an ICT suite for the students to study computing and act as a resource for Kasoa community members.
