Plea of an innocent child
I received an email in the foundation inbox from a young girl who wanted my contact to discuss something confidential with me.
I gave her my contact and she called to say unbearable things.

She narrates a story about the father who has been accused wrongly for rape he never committed and she swore her father never did and will not do such thing.
She is the only child of her father and the mother left the father eight years now ago. The father is in police custody for months now and will be going to court soon.

The young girl pleaded I meet the father so as to lend my support where need be. She however emphasized the need to keep it confidential; keen to keep it from intruders.
I went to the police station dressed very informal and in mufti outfit as the son to the man who wanted to see his father. It took me time to prove to the police that I am the son and works as a truck puller in Accra. I learnt about my father’s story and I dearly want to see him; I had to shed tears to earn sympathy from the police officer. The police gave me a glimpse of hope as he gave me the chance to enter and have a short time with him noting such visits are not allowed but for my sake and for the man in custody.

The man said his father gave birth to four children. Three men and a lady. His father left some properties before his untimely demise. However, One of their uncle’s in the family has been fighting them for the same properties after the death of both parents. All his brothers and sister lost their lives through this property. One of the brother was poisoned and his sister was knocked down by an unknown car.
He gave out all the lands to the uncle leaving the house only but his uncle wanted to still eliminate him by all means.

His wife left him some years now because he fell sick and lost his manhood. This is confidential which his child should not know, he said.

He was accused of raping his uncle’s child which he never did and will not, he reckoned. The police doctors report states the child was raped but there’s nothing he could say to prove his innocence.

I asked the man to show me where his wife is and he did. I embarked on a journey to the village thus by a far distance to see the woman and wherewith proved a tedious endeavor. She needed to be convinced and asked continuously so to say the truth of the man loosing the manhood.
She told me the truth and I made her to give me proofs to show she married the man legally. I took the woman to Accra and kept her in a safe place. The court sitting was today Thursday. I brought the woman to court with my legal advisor for her to witness and testify in order to save the innocent man. She left the man because of that and God being so good she saved him.
The court has granted bail to the man and adjourn the case to next two weeks and also asked us to go for medical report to proof the man is actually impotent as said.

God being so good two hospitals just finished their reports and all proofs indicate the man’s manhood is not functional.
The man would have go to prison leaving this girl who might fall prey to many.

How My Life Changed

In the year 2007, I was a security guard stationed at Fidelity Bank, where I managed the reception and common areas on the Managing Director‘s floor.

One day, the MD (in the picture) (Mr Edward Effah -CEO) was passing by and stopped to ask the reason why I am at a security post instead of being in school. I was very young and naive then.

To my utmost amazement, the bank offered me a job as a Messenger by then.

*While working, I used my time judiciously, studied and rewrote my SSCE again and for the fourth time I have passed.

*With an inspiration from environment in which I work, I applied to university as a matured student. With grit and hardwork, I passed with distinction and gained admission to Level 200. Though the challenge wasn’t easy, I successfully graduated.

Inspired by my life story, I Formed an NGO, Give Me Hope Foundation, that brought together people of the same heart and have impacted thousands of lives.

* Provided scholarships to 70 children in school.

* Got the opportunity to share my life story and the impact the foundation is making to the shareholders and Board of Directors of the bank.

* Just a helping hand offered to me, has today changed thousands of lives.

Received numerous awards and recognized by international Organizations for the change I lead.

I am a young banker who had braved the storm in my life to found Give Me Hope Foundation. Strong passion for sustainable development. You can’t take away my study passion for education, especially for the defenseless streets and neglected children. 
My staunch passion to help millions of underprivileged children who are denied of quality education was the motivation for the NGO that brought together great people of the same heart and has focused on eradication of poverty through: Early education for the streets and slums, Mentorships, Health, clothes, food, Skills training.

“Nothing exalts the soul or gives it a sheer sense of buoyancy and victory so much as being used to change the lives of other

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” .

Let’s celebrate them when they are alive.

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.

 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 visited Nsawan prison to save guy who is supposed to serve 5 years in prison if a fined of Ghs 1,200 is not paid. 

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.

3. A young pastor who preaches in town got his girlfriend pregnant and the lady needed abortion but the guy refused. The lady came home with some medication and he took it which turns into heated confrontation he knocked the lady which she reported the case in different way and he was arrested and charged with a fined of Ghs 900 or one year in prison. He could not pay the fine and have to serve his sentence.
