Give Me Hope Foundation Rescue a Street Woman and Her Children

I was driving around 11pm at first light when I saw her selling three t rolls but the baby at her back was just crying nonstop. I asked her of the reason but she said no sales yet to get the child some food to eat. I gave her something to buy food for the baby and added my core card.

I visited her at home and listen to her story and she also have a boy not in school. Her husband went to Togo and has still not returned for a year now. She has to move from where they stay because of the inability to pay rent. We cannot support the child with the same mother still in the same condition.

I decided to buy 50 pieces of T rolls for her to be selling in order to feed the children while we take education responsibilities of the child to go to school.

The aim is to change the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in some of the most impoverished rural communities and slums in Ghana through education. “No child should be left behind and every child is your child” said by Wisdom Dordoe the founder of Give Me Hope Foundation.

You can be part of this story by supporting, school uniform, bag, shoe and books to a child through this initiative.

That’s why as well as giving children school supplies and fees, your support also helps them develop emotionally and make wise choices in life through ongoing support, counselling and life-skills workshops. Once children join Back to School Drive, support is available to them until they get to free senior high school. 

 Children between the ages 3 and 18 will enrolled in schools. This increase can only be possible through commitment and partnerships is organizations and individuals.

Emphasis will be placed on Early Childhood Development and provision of healthcare to children. Experience in the communities has further highlighted the important role this plays in proper integration of out-of-school children into the primary school system

Estimate of 400,000 children – approximately 1 in 4 pre-primary age children – are still not enrolled in kindergarten. “Pre-primary schooling is our children’s educational foundation – every stage of education that follows relies on its success,” said UNICEF representative in Anne-Claire Dufay. “Yet, too many children in Ghana are denied this opportunity. This is a looming threat to the economic prosperity, social security and developmental sustainability of the nation and a wakeup call to every responsible organization, individual and leaders in the private and public sector across the country to join us stand up for these children and do something.

Through partnership with various socially responsible organizations and individuals we can provided various educational and psychosocial support to over thousands children in Ghana back to school.

We were made to listen some stories which needed our support.

1. A young guy is sentenced to 2 years in prison in February 2019 for careless driving. This young guy came to Accra to hustle for greener pastures. He drives taxi and was crossed by a 4*4 car. The man took him to police and the car came for his car and left him there. He was fined an amount of Ghs 1500 or two years in prison. Is unfortunate  he lost his phone and could reach any of his families. 

2. 19 years boy was sentenced in April to prison for stealing phone. He was fined Ghs 700 or one year. Per discussions with him His boss phone was on charging in the shop which he was there alone. He left to buy food within a 5 minutes and the phone is no where to be found. Nothing he could say to defend himself of not taking the phone. This guy cannot hold tears when narrating his story.

Meet the man educating girls in menstrual hygiene

Source: Ghana| Myjoyonline.com |Abubakar Ibrahim
Date: 12-06-2019 Time: 07:06:47:pm
Wisdom Dordoe’s strong belief in the youth and children has led him to start a small initiative titled iCAN Mentorship which gathered season speakers.

“We need to let our girls know that whatever sanitary method they use while menstruating, must be hygienic and that they should not feel ashamed during their period,” the founder of Give Me Hope Foundation said.

 
Mr Dordoe said a young lady having her period especially for the first time, is a thing of pride as it initiates her into the next stage of development.

This informed his decision to take his campaign to some Junior High Schools (JHS) in the Greater Accra as well as the Ashanti regions. 

Some of the beneficiary schools are Ordogonno JHS, Nsawan JHS and Presby JHS in Asante-Mampong in Kumasi. 

Speaking after his visit to the schools he told JoyNews, it is time society embraced them and it is everybody’s business to teach them how to keep themselves well stressing, it is not something the girls have to be ashamed of it.

“We need everybody to show support for it because it is important to health and nation-building. If we are talking about empowering a girl child through personal hygiene; it is not just about health but also about social development,” he said.

“Menstruation should not be something hidden or to be ashamed of, instead, the girls should be empowered with enough information and means to make their menstrual periods more hygienic and comfortable for them,” Mr Dordoe said.

According to him, if the men want to see their women succeed, it is time young girls’ hygiene becomes an issue of priority for them.

 

“It is common for women to talk about young lady’s hygiene but I want the men to come forward to fight for this for our young rights,” he said. 

Some of the pupils who benefitted said it was an eye-opening experience for them and they got the opportunity to know their bodies better. 

Mr Dordoe’s Foundation distributed sanitary pads and mathematical sets to the students.

Wisdom Dordoe is a banker and founder of Give Me Hope Foundation, an NGO since 2013 which has been the voice for children and less privileged. He is also the country adviser for Naifa Naif Foundation.

Education has an immense potential to change and save lives. We need to encourage students to become exceptional in society by promoting individual growth through academic achievement.

Some new Junior High School (JHS) graduates have lauded the Give Me Hope Foundation’s ‘iCan Mentorship’ programme for helping them prepare adequately for their Basic Education Certificate Exam (BECE).

Beneficiaries of the program themed “Inspired for Excellent BECE” held at Ordogonno JHS prior to this year’s exam said it helped see them through the exam.

The over 150 candidates who participated in the seminar were taken through the Dos and Don’ts of the BECE as well as general examination and studying tips on how to answer questions effectively.

Most of the participating candidates were excited as they were not only mentored but the Give Me Hope Foundation provided them with some school materials including mathematical sets

“Although it’s just a day’s seminar, I believe it afforded us the opportunity and time to acquaint ourselves with best practices when it came to the BECE,” one of the candidates said.

Another beneficiary said, “We got the benefit of hindsight and it really helped in making the most out of the exams.” 

Volunteer mentors, Emmanuel Tsivafe and Cynthia Kumah, who took the candidates through various levels of preparations said they provided the candidates with psychological counselling to boost their confidence.

“We are motivated to extend our tentacles in subsequent mentorship programmes because of the testimonies of the candidates. We picked a theme that demonstrated our vision of empowering BECE the students,” Ms Kumah said.

Founder of the Give Me Hope Foundation, Wisdom Dordoe, said they aimed to remove any doubt and give the students the right boost as they undertake a remarkable step in their lives.

“We taught this will go a long way in giving them the right foundation in writing examinations so it will help them in give off their best,” he said.

He added, “making it an annual event and organising more iCan Mentorship projects will go a long way to improve on the fortunes of BECE candidates.” 

Mr Dordoe called on institutions, NGOs, philanthropists, donors and interest groups to partner them in organising such programmes to help JHS students.

From New York to Paris to Beijing, every human is said to have the power and opportunity to become successful in life, whether born into a rich family or poor, or even living a normal life or living with any form of disability.

However, in Ghana, there are very little opportunities as well as social intervention initiatives put in place to cushion persons living with disabilities.

On March 8, 2019, I was struck by the chilling story of a man together with his wife, who are all physically-challenged persons while on a visit to the Ridge Hospital in Accra.

The physically-challenged man whose wife was visibly pregnant shared his story with me on how he and his wife’s lives have been touched by a young man they described in their words as a ‘Guardian Angel’.

The man, who was in crutches while his wife was also in a wheelchair, gave his name as Emmanuel Bonah and legally married to his wife.

Mr Bonah, believed to be in his 40s narrating his ordeal revealed that he almost gave up on life after doctors at the Ridge Hospital told him that his pregnant wife was in a condition that needed her to go through cesarean-section in order to save her and that of his unborn baby, but couldn’t afford to raise any money.

Emmanuel Bonah who was almost in tears in his conversation told me that, in the middle of his frustration; he approached and narrated his plight to an unknown young man by the roadside around Ridge Hospital area, who instantly offered to assist him.

He added that, although he had little hope approaching the ‘stranger’ about his wife’s condition, he was amazed at the swift response and the compassion demonstrated by the young man towards him.

“This young man followed me to the hospital and guaranteed his personal car he was driving in, and urged the doctor to go ahead with the surgery and that he will come back and pay the bills and take back his car, such an unbelievable hero,” the man narrated amid tears.

Mr. Bonah insisted that his wife who was at the point of death together with his baby boy got their lives saved through the kind gesture of this ‘strange angel’.

And as a journalist, I decided to dig further in order to uncover more about the activities of this kind young man.

However, my checks revealed that the ‘Guardian Angel’ in question is a young banker and philanthropist who currently works with Ghana’s Fidelity Bank.

He is also the founder of Give Me Hope Charity Foundation that has touched thousands of lives over the years.

Speaking exclusively to this young man, he gave his full name as Wisdom Dordoe, and insisted that his gesture to Mr. and Mrs. Bonah was influenced by his poor upbringing as a child far back in the Volta Region of Ghana.

“I have seen and tasted how poverty is and I have always promised myself to make a difference by touching other underprivileged people’s lives in society, especially vulnerable groups and children,” Wisdom Dordoe said.

Give Me Hope Foundation which was founded in 2013 is aimed at restoring hope and inspiring the lives of underprivileged people in Ghana.

“My ultimate aim is to see every Ghanaian child get access to education, empower the youth, create child abuse awareness, expose domestic violence and as well give voice to the voiceless,” he added.

Give Me Hope Foundation has over the years embarked on numerous life-changing projects by touching the lives of orphanage homes, street children, prison inmates as well as vulnerable individuals across the country.

Mr. Wisdom Dordoe in his final submission encouraged Ghanaian youth to develop more interest in charity and community works; by tackling pressing issues that matter most to them in society.

“I cannot stress how important this is in every society by addressing an issue that you’re emotionally connected with in order to bring real results and change into the lives of other people regardless of your income bracket,” he said.
