Samuel M.K Dzomeku - Executive Director

I am the 3th born, am 25 years old and currently, I am studying network engineering. It’s is my passion to be in charity for life regardless of whatever the world and situation looks like. I realized I was born to serve people when I started knowing myself and getting mature. I feel very joyful inside when am able to support people. I had the drive to show love, because I myself was a victim of hard African poverty: My father died when I was in class one, along the line I had to work hard to support my secondary education. On this account I hated seeing people suffer. I personally feel that no one deserves to suffer and if the government is not willing to change things quickly then I will also do my quota to help the world developing.

Simone Eggenberger - Programmes Director

I am a 23-years old medical student from Switzerland. I have lived there all my life. I wasn’t completely aware what privilege this is before I first went to Ghana in 2014. At this time, I volunteered as a teacher for three months. I fell in love with the country and its people, but at the same time, the helplessness of many families to get out of poverty made me sad. As a human being on this planet, I feel I can’t just close my eyes - there is a responsibility. I realized that I can’t save the world, but I got passionate to at least try my best to maybe make the world a little better.
