By sponsoring a child, you let that child know that someone, somewhere, cares deeply about their success and well-being.

WHAT DOES SPONSORING A CHILD OFFER?

Sponsoring a child for $35 a month provides that child with three nutritious meals a day, a basic education, health insurance, school supplies, and school uniforms as well as clothes to wear outside of school. Because we don’t want any child at Missahoe to be penalized for not being sponsored, all funds are pooled into one account that cares for all of the children at the home collectively.  One you have subscribed to sponsor a child, the $35 will be pulled from you account on the first of the month from that date forward.

If a child’s profile says that they are part of our outreach program, this means that they no longer physically live in the orphanage. These children have been placed back with their parents or another family member, but are still fully supported by the home.  Their school fees, feeding fees, clothing, and medical needs are still managed by Missahoe Children’s Home, and Mawusi, the children’s primary caregiver at the home visits them at least once a month at home to ensure their needs are being adequately met.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”padding-2-percent” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][nectar_cascading_images image_1_bg_color=”#2493db” image_1_offset_x_sign=”+” image_1_offset_x=”10%” image_1_offset_y_sign=”+” image_1_offset_y=”10%” image_1_rotate_sign=”+” image_1_rotate=”none” image_1_scale=”1″ image_1_animation=”Fade In” image_1_box_shadow=”none” image_1_padding=”auto” image_1_max_width_desktop=”100%” image_1_max_width_mobile=”100%” image_2_url=”227″ image_2_offset_x_sign=”+” image_2_offset_x=”0%” image_2_offset_y_sign=”+” image_2_offset_y=”0%” image_2_rotate_sign=”+” image_2_rotate=”none” image_2_scale=”1″ image_2_animation=”Fade In” image_2_box_shadow=”none” image_2_padding=”auto” image_2_max_width_desktop=”100%” image_2_max_width_mobile=”100%” image_3_offset_x_sign=”+” image_3_offset_x=”0%” image_3_offset_y_sign=”+” image_3_offset_y=”0%” image_3_rotate_sign=”+” image_3_rotate=”none” image_3_scale=”1″ image_3_animation=”Fade In” image_3_box_shadow=”none” image_3_padding=”auto” image_3_max_width_desktop=”100%” image_3_max_width_mobile=”100%” image_4_offset_x_sign=”+” image_4_offset_x=”0%” image_4_offset_y_sign=”+” image_4_offset_y=”0%” image_4_rotate_sign=”+” image_4_rotate=”none” image_4_scale=”1″ image_4_animation=”Fade In” image_4_box_shadow=”none” image_4_padding=”auto” image_4_max_width_desktop=”100%” image_4_max_width_mobile=”100%” border_radius=”none” image_loading=”default”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” column_margin=”default” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column_text]

HOW DOES SPONSORSHIP WORK?

Potential sponsors are able to scroll through photos and profiles of the children who reside at Missahoe orphanage or who are part of our outreach program below. Once a child is selected that you would like to sponsor, you will be prompted to set up a monthly auto deposit of $35 monthly which will be withdrawn from your account on the first of every month.

Once you have sponsored a child you will have the opportunity to begin to build a relationship with that child. You will receive updates on that child’s grades, accomplishments, and general well-being from one of our staff members at least two times a year, and can gain more information on your sponsored child upon request. Because we are a family based charity, we are willing to personalize sponsorship relationships to fit the needs of both sponsors and the sponsored child within reason-so don’t hesitate to reach out and ask questions/make suggestions![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full_width_background” full_screen_row_position=”middle” column_margin=”default” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” top_padding=”100″ bottom_padding=”5%” id=”childrensroww” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none” shape_type=””][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][tabbed_section style=”minimal” alignment=”left” spacing=”default” tab_color=”Extra-Color-3″ cta_button_style=”extra-color-2″ icon_size=”24″][tab icon_family=”none” title=”In Need of Sponsors” id=”1607977143926-1″ tab_id=”1607977143928-7″][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”padding-2-percent” column_padding_position=”right” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none” enable_animation=”true” animation=”reveal-from-bottom”][image_with_animation image_url=”237″ alignment=”” animation=”None” hover_animation=”none” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” image_loading=”default” max_width=”100%” max_width_mobile=”default”][vc_column_text]

Bella, 12

Bella is here at Missahoe with her big sister Bertha.    Being smaller definitely doesn’t stop her bursting personality from shining through though!  The two girls  were brought to Missahoe orphanage when they were one year old because their mother was handicapped and couldn’t take care of them.  Their grandmother had tried to take care of them but was too old to keep up with two busy little girls.  Bella is a bright little girl who  naturally has a motherly sense.  She can always be found with one of the nursery school kids on her back or caring for another younger kid and making sure they are taken care of.  We are sure when she grows up our Bella will be the best mom there is. Bella is also very intelligent. She consistently places at the top in her class and is always eager to learn new things. When she grows up, Bella dreams of becoming a flight attendant and seeing the world.

Bella is not currently eligible for sponsorship as she has been sponsored already.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none” enable_animation=”true” animation=”reveal-from-bottom”][image_with_animation image_url=”240″ alignment=”” animation=”None” hover_animation=”none” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” image_loading=”default” max_width=”100%” max_width_mobile=”default”][vc_column_text]

Erika, 15

Meet our beautiful and sassy Erika.  She is sweet and spicy all in one.  A hard working student and helpful hand around the house, Erika is looking for someone who she can form a friendship with and who might support her through secondary school, as she has almost completed junior high school.  Erica has been here at Missahoe since she was just a little girl.  She was brought here with her older brother Prosper who grew up in the home and has since moved out.  She is always excited to see hime when he comes to visit her.

Comfort, 13

Comfort is one of our quieter kids, but has the sweetest and most welcoming personality once she gets comfortable with you.  Comfort was brought here with her two older brothers Richard and Michael who have since grown up and left the home.  Their mother was very young and their father was an older pastor, who left her alone with six children to marry another woman.  Their mother did not treat the kids properly which is why Missahoe has taken them in.  Comfort came to the home when she was two years old, so most of her memories are here.  She is currently in class six and is one of the top students in her class. Our sweet and cuddly Comfort is sure to steal any heart that she comes by!

Comfort is not currently available for sponsorship as she has already been sponsored.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”padding-2-percent” column_padding_position=”right” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none” enable_animation=”true” animation=”reveal-from-bottom”][image_with_animation image_url=”234″ alignment=”” animation=”None” hover_animation=”none” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” image_loading=”default” max_width=”100%” max_width_mobile=”default”][vc_column_text]

Bertha, 14

Bertha and her younger sister Bella have been at Missahoe since they were very young. Their mother is handicapped and was unable to care for them and was relying heavily on their grandmother for help. Their grandmother was too old to be caring for two babies so the pair were brought to Missahoe. Despite her situation, Bertha is an outgoing, impossibly happy little girl. She is one of the older girls at the home, so she has taken on a natural leadership role and is always helpful around the house. Bertha quickly becomes a favorite among visitors to the home because of her friendly and welcoming nature and her outgoing personality. We can’t wait to support her strength and to watch her grow into the powerful woman we can already see she will become.

Emmanuel, 9

Emmanuel is a sweet and funny young man. Emmanuel was brought to Missahoe in early 2019 because his family could no longer afford to take care of him. Emmanuel, or Emma as we like to call him, is a very bright young man. He speaks four languages fluently, and is currently learning a fifth. Emmanuel is sweet and loves to hang out with volunteers. He has lots of questions about the world outside of Ghana, and is eager to continue learning about the world. When he grows up, Emma wants to become a pilot so he is able to see different places in the world and learn about all the different cultures.

Sena, 10

Sena is the firecracker of Missahoe orphanage! A zealous fourth grader, Sena is always ready to soak up all the action and loves to be the head of all the activities going on around her. She is friendly, adorable, and has a sparklingly loud personality. Sena was brought to the home by her mother when she was two years old where we accepted her with open arms. She now excels academically and socially, and chooses to sport her awesome hairdo instead of the shaved head like most other Ghanaian children. We know that Sena has the spunk and strong willed personality to change the world one day.

Augustine, 9

Our sweet Augustine is the clown of the home.  He is always laughing or making another one of the kids laugh. He can usually be found in a tree, looking for mangos or pears or building himself a fort.   He keeps the mood of the home light and happy despite the hard days.  Augustine was brought to Missahoe with his brother Raphael because their biological parents split up and they were in need of protection and more stability.  Raphael has since left the home.  Augustine is truly a joy to be around and a favorite among volunteers who visit the home.  In early 2020, Augustine was placed back with his biological family, but continues to be supported by the home through our outreach program.

Timothy, 11

Timothy is a sweet and genuine young man.  He is sometimes quiet at first,  but always seems to open up and show visitors his pure heart and crazy energetic side. Timothy loves running around, playing soccer, and climbing trees.  His mother was just fifteen years old when she gave birth to him, and was unable to support him on her own.  Missahoe welcomed Timothy with open arms, and we are so proud of the young man he is becoming. We can’t wait to see where Timothy channels his energy to, because we know whenever Timothy sets his mind to something, it’s only a matter of time before he achieves it.

Landrea, 24

Landrea is sweet and kind and puts his heart into everything he does.  He is older, but has grown up his whole life at Missahoe and will always call it home.  Landrea is currently in trade school learning how to do construction and he says that for his first big project he wants to build a beautiful palace for all of the Missahoe children to live in with everything they could ever need.  Landrea helps to care for the boys and acts as a father figure to them in some ways.  We are truly so lucky to have such a helpful and kind man looking out for our boys and helping them whenever they need.

Desmond, 5

Little Desmond was brought to Missahoe children’s home when he was just two years old.  Desmond is one of our smallest children, and also one of the most loving.  Desmond always wants to be holding volunteers hands and is always the first to jump into your arms after a long day of work.  He was brought to the home because his  father denied his mother’s pregnancy and left the responsibility to his mother.  His mom tried to care for him but fell seriously ill and remains ill to this day so social services brought him to Missahoe to give him a better life.  Our little Desmond is a talented singer and one day he dreams that he can make a career out of it!

Mercey, 11

Mercy is one of the many beauty queens of our home-just look at that smile! Mercy was growing up here at Missahoe with her big sister Fransisca, the two have since moved back home with their extended family and are part of our outreach program.  Initially, the two were abandoned at a young age and were brought to Missahoe by social services.  Since then, we have made contact with family and ensured a safe space for them to live and grow. Mercy excels academically and has many friends at school. One of Mercey’s favorite things to do is to climb the big mango tree behind the orphanage and grab a snack for her and her friends.

Junior, 10

Junior was brought to Missahoe with his older brother Christopher and younger sister Harriet. Junior’s father was a tractor driver working for a farmer and his mother was unemployed. His father decided that he no longer wanted to help care for the kids and so the burden of raising three children fell on the shoulders of their mother. Eventually, their mother was unable to afford to care for her children so she made the impossibly hard decision to give up their care to Missahoe children’s home in hopes that mama Mawusi would be able to raise them in a more stable way than she herself could.  The three have since returned to their mother’s care, as she was able to gain employment and stability.  Their needs are still managed by the home through our outreach program.[/vc_column_text][nectar_btn size=”small” button_style=”regular” button_color_2=”Extra-Color-3″ icon_family=”none” text=”Sponsor Junior” url=”https://quickclick.com/r/mtpaz”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”padding-2-percent” column_padding_position=”right” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none” enable_animation=”true” animation=”reveal-from-bottom”][image_with_animation image_url=”245″ alignment=”” animation=”None” hover_animation=”none” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” image_loading=”default” max_width=”100%” max_width_mobile=”default”][vc_column_text]

Titi, 20

Meet Titi (tee-tee).  Titi is Mama Mawusi’s biological child.  Despite growing up with her mother she still grew up in the orphanage as if she was one of the other kids.  Titi is gentle and kind to everyone she meets and always makes new kids at the home feel safe and welcome.  She is motherly by nature and loves to care for babies.  Right now Titi helps out at the school with the nursery school aged children and is hoping she can go to school to be a teacher one day.

Fransisca, 12

Fransisca is a quiet, shy young lady who is very sweet and soft spoken.  She grew up at Missahoe with her younger sister Mercy until early 2020 when the two were moved into a trial home placement with one of their family members.  Initially,the two were abandoned when they were very young, which is what brought them into the home.  Since then, contact has been made with their family and a safe space for them to live has been ensured.  Francesca is a hard worker with a quiet and gentle nature about her.  She is shy around new comers but always shows interest and genuine care for all others around her. She is a natural caretaker and was often found looking after the other girls in the house. We can’t wait to continue watching her grow into the amazing young woman we know she will become.

Cilas, 14

Cilas is a sweet and caring young man. He is quiet in his demeanor but excels academically. Silas is one of six children. His mother suffers from mental illness and was not able to care for her children, and his family could no longer financially support them, so they were forced to make the impossible decision of sending Cilas to live at Missahoe. Cilas is still able to see his family occasionally for holidays and hopes one day to be able to give back to them for offering him a better life. Cilas is outrageously curious. He can spend hours at a time with volunteers asking about where they come from and how things work in other parts of the world. We cannot wait to see all the amazing things this quizzical young man will accomplish in his life.

Christian, 15

Christian is our strong boy at the home. He is always willing to help with tasks that Mama Mawusi isn’t strong enough to do on her own. Christian and his brother Daniel lost both of their parents in a tragic incident of domestic violence. Christian was just two months old at the time, so he has lived most of his life at Missahoe. Christian is kind and helpful, but has struggled in the past with coming to terms with his situation. We are so proud of him for working as hard as he does and we cannot wait to see the person he will become one day.

Vanessa, 23

Vanessa is one of the sweetest and most kind hearted people that we have ever met. She is personable, funny and extremely helpful with caring for the kids. Vanessa has grown up most of her life at Missahoe. She was brought to the home with four of her siblings, all who have since left the home. The five children were brought to the home after the death of their father. They never knew their mother so when their father passed away the children were passed on to various family members. The family was trying to force the kids to practice voodoo-a common practice in the northern regions of Ghana. An aunt realized the children’s unwillingness to practice the voodoo worship, so she snuck them away and brought them to Missahoe so they could attend school. Vanessa still lives at the home and is awaiting funds to complete her university education.

Christopher, 12

Christopher is the oldest of three siblings that were brought to Missahoe Children’s home.  Christopher and his younger brother Junior and younger sister Harriet were brought to Missahoe by their mother because she could no longer afford to care for them.  Their father, a tractor driver for a farmer, left their mother who was unemployed and she could no longer care for three small children.  Since then, their mother has gained employment and stability, and thus has taken the children back.  They are still supported by the home through our outreach program.  Christopher is very helpful in guiding his younger siblings through their life.  He does well in school and is always helpful around the home.  He has a passion for playing soccer and hopes to be a professional one day on the Ghana national team.[/vc_column_text][nectar_btn size=”small” button_style=”regular” button_color_2=”Extra-Color-3″ icon_family=”none” text=”Sponsor Christopher” url=”https://quickclick.com/r/ztt9q”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/tab][tab icon_family=”none” title=”Sponsered” id=”1607977147431-0″ tab_id=”1607977147432-1″][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” overlay_strength=”0.3″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none” enable_animation=”true” animation=”reveal-from-bottom”][image_with_animation image_url=”236″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In” hover_animation=”none” border_radius=”none” box_shadow=”none” image_loading=”default” max_width=”100%” max_width_mobile=”default”][vc_column_text]

Comfort, 13

Comfort is one of our quieter kids, but has the sweetest and most welcoming personality once she gets comfortable with you.  Comfort was brought here with her two older brothers Richard and Michael who have since grown up and left the home.  Their mother was very young and their father was an older pastor, who left her alone with six children to marry another woman.  Their mother did not treat the kids properly which is why Missahoe has taken them in.  Comfort came to the home when she was two years old, so most of her memories are here.  She is currently in class six and is one of the top students in her class. Our sweet and cuddly Comfort is sure to steal any heart that she comes by!

Bella, 12

Bella is here at Missahoe with her big sister Bertha.    Being smaller definitely doesn’t stop her bursting personality from shining through though!  The two girls  were brought to Missahoe orphanage when they were one year old because their mother was handicapped and couldn’t take care of them.  Their grandmother had tried to take care of them but was too old to keep up with two busy little girls.  Bella is a bright little girl who  naturally has a motherly sense.  She can always be found with one of the nursery school kids on her back or caring for another younger kid and making sure they are taken care of.  We are sure when she grows up our Bella will be the best mom there is. Bella is also very intelligent. She consistently places at the top in her class and is always eager to learn new things. When she grows up, Bella dreams of becoming a flight attendant and seeing the world.

Emmanuel, 9

Emmanuel is a sweet and funny young man. Emmanuel was brought to Missahoe in early 2019 because his family could no longer afford to take care of him. Emmanuel, or Emma as we like to call him, is a very bright young man. He speaks four languages fluently, and is currently learning a fifth. Emmanuel is sweet and loves to hang out with volunteers. He has lots of questions about the world outside of Ghana, and is eager to continue learning about the world. When he grows up, Emma wants to become a pilot so he is able to see different places in the world and learn about all the different cultures.

Timothy, 11

Timothy is a sweet and genuine young man.  He is sometimes quiet at first,  but always seems to open up and show visitors his pure heart and crazy energetic side. Timothy loves running around, playing soccer, and climbing trees.  His mother was just fifteen years old when she gave birth to him, and was unable to support him on her own.  Missahoe welcomed Timothy with open arms, and we are so proud of the young man he is becoming. We can’t wait to see where Timothy channels his energy to, because we know whenever Timothy sets his mind to something, it’s only a matter of time before he achieves it.

Mercey, 11

Mercy is one of the many beauty queens of our home-just look at that smile! Mercy was growing up here at Missahoe with her big sister Fransisca, the two have since moved back home with their extended family and are part of our outreach program.  Initially, the two were abandoned at a young age and were brought to Missahoe by social services.  Since then, we have made contact with family and ensured a safe space for them to live and grow. Mercy excels academically and has many friends at school. One of Mercey’s favorite things to do is to climb the big mango tree behind the orphanage and grab a snack for her and her friends.

Titi, 20

Meet Titi (tee-tee).  Titi is Mama Mawusi’s biological child.  Despite growing up with her mother she still grew up in the orphanage as if she was one of the other kids.  Titi is gentle and kind to everyone she meets and always makes new kids at the home feel safe and welcome.  She is motherly by nature and loves to care for babies.  Right now Titi helps out at the school with the nursery school aged children and is hoping she can go to school to be a teacher one day.

Nana came to Missahoe with his older brother Richmond in August of 2020.  The two boys came into care due to their mother passing away from illness, and their father’s inability to properly care for them.  Nana enjoys being around the other kids in the home, and particularly likes to be cared for by the older girls at the home.  Nana is learning to speak Ewe (the region’s language) as well as English.  He attends the nursery program at Misssahoe school.  We are so excited to watch Nana grow!

Richmond was brought to Missahoe in August 2020 with his younger brother Nana.  The boys were brought to the home following their mother passing away from illness, and their father’s inability to care for the boys.  Richmond has some medical complications including untreated spina bifida, extra fluid in his brain cavity, and deformations to his legs that make him unable to walk.  Richmond had never previously attended school before coming to the home in 2020.  He is bright though, and is reported to be catching on fast.  He is a very protective older brother and always looks out for Nana around the house and the school.[/vc_column_text][nectar_btn size=”small” button_style=”regular” button_color_2=”Accent-Color” icon_family=”none” url=”
