To enhance the quality of life for children,
by providing communities in Sub-Saharan Africa with access to life-changing opportunities
and sustainable solutions.
Our philosophy is deeply rooted
in a simple fundamental belief:
ALL children across the world should have the basic privilege to experience their inherent human birthright; QUALITY OF LIFE.
This allows them to equally excel and attain their highest potential.
Our goal is to enhance their quality of life by providing solutions that address the root cause of the main issue; POVERTY.
We work consciously to fulfill our vision of a world with self-sustainable people
& sustainable communities....
1 CHILD & 1 VILLAGE at a time!
At the core, our main belief is that "it takes a golden heart," to NOT ignore the plight of poverty around the world. It takes courage to answer the call of duty and help children and families withstand its devastating effects.
20 plus years ago, our Founder and President, Fanta Sesay, unofficially began this philanthropic movement by aiding in the fight on the war against poverty in West Africa. She didn't have much when she started; just a golden heart and a vision of a better Africa in mind.
Here is her story...OUR FOUNDER'S VIDEO.
Armed with years of nursing experience in the United States, she knew that she could use her skills as a powerful tool to help the less fortunate people of her native land - Sierra Leone. Using what she had, she began by providing medical supplies for the youth, pregnant, sick and elderly.
She has provided over 500 Sustainability Grants in the form of food/housing assistance, educational scholarships, medical bill assistance and start-up/expansion business grants. All "singlehandedly" and "unofficially."
On one of her "unofficial" mission trips to an orphanage in West Africa, she came across a harsh reality that led to the eventual founding of our official non-profit organization.
After distributing school supplies (donated by her youngest son) to 44 children at an orphanage, she looked around and realized there were 50+ other orphans crying because they felt they had been left out. She explained to the children why there simply was not enough to go around this time. That very day, she made a promise to them that their gift was on the way.
Witnessing this experience broke her heart, but further strengthened her resolve.
She knew that her capacity to help was limited. As her "unofficial" angel operations on the ground grew, so did the need for awareness & support. So, she sent out a call for help and the community began to answer.
This call to action has bought aboard others who share that same golden heart. And with their support, her love for humanity has grown and deeply and inspired others. She hopes to continue enlisting assistance for a greater impact on the world.
Ultimately, it is her solemn wish to utilize this platform to raise awareness about the issues and solicit further support in the cause. She hopes to leave this organization as a sustainable legacy that will live on beyond her days.
To all our volunteers, donors and communities who continue to answer Fanta's call for support, we say THANK YOU!
Deep down, what unites us ALL is our love for humanity and our beautiful golden hearts!
We are a group of dedicated golden-hearted volunteers who help to support children suffering from the effects of poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In doing so, we establish a seed in the community that will grow into a sustainable solution for the children now and the future generations to come.
