With the support of you all we have been able to actively sponsor 65 children via our flagship Child Sponsorship Program in Ghana. Most of these children dropped out of school because they had to support their single parents, they became orphan or they had teenage mothers unable to send them to school.
Help us reach our ambitious goal of 80 this year! Drop us an email or visit our online fundraising page to donate – every small or big donation counts! With an little as 1$ per day you can give a child access to education, healthcare and hope for a better future.

GIVING TUESDAY: MARK TANF IN YOUR CALENDAR!

TANF would like to invite as many people as possible to join our Giving Tuesday movement this year on the 27th of November to enroll 15 underprivileged children to school. Our target is to raise an amount that’s covers 15 children to be in school for one year. With our 1$ per day Child Sponsorship program we can make it! As we are stronger together!

THE POWER OF MICRO-FINANCING: A CALL FOR A SUSTAINABLE CHANGE

At TANF we believe long-term change can be achieved only by having a sustainable approach, decreasing the dependability on external sponsors and donations and by encouraging local small businesses to arise and self-sustain themselves. For this reason we have started TANF’s first MicroFinance Program supporting single mothers in Ghana to start and grow their business, while their kids can go to school.
 
Also the mother of Wiafe, who lost his right arm in a fire accident when he was only 1 week old, needs our help. She was unemployed, relying heavily on subsistence farming to provide food to Wiafe and his younger brother. Living in a single room of a traditional house made of mud and clay. No electricity, no running water. After TANF Ghana provided a scholarship to pay for Wiafe’s education, he’s been extremely motivated to attend school, walking two hours to get there and back each day. His mother has since expressed a desire to start her own business selling small goods to help bring income into the family.

TANF’s PRIORITY: TEENAGE PREGNANCY AWARENESS

At TANF we have set the priority on to running more public awareness campaigns covering the topic of teenage pregnancy and how can one can prevents them. Since we started our Child Sponsorship Program, we have discovered more cases of girls aged 14-15 getting pregnant, being an important gap in our focus area, that we have decided to address by educating both teenage girls and boys about the importance of safe-sex education and early-pregnancy prevention. We have launched a new campaign: TANF Rural Women and girls Empowerment Project to raise needed awareness and funds to make it happen. Join us today!

At Tanf, we believe that every child is important and deserves and equal opportunity to education. As such we make try our possible best to make sure that no child is left out. Regardless of their situation we ensure they get the right resource to pursue a quality education. 

This is the story of Basira, a bright young girl who has the hope to be educated but had to drop out of school due to the luck of family supports.

With the help of wonderful donors like you we have been able to enroll her back to school.  She is currently enjoying her education life in school. The impact of your generous donations has enabled her increased her attendance and academic performance.

Now, she has high hopes in achieving her dream of becoming a medical Doctor in-future.

We still count on you to enroll more children on our waiting list with similar challanges, No amount is to small!

Ongoing malaria screening
Ongoing malaria screening

Malaria is responsible for the death of many children and adults in Ghana. Many Ghanaians do not regard it as a serious disease leaving them more exposed with a higher chance of being infected.  Tanf Ghana had its first health screening this year and the screening was focused on malaria. The screening was organized with the help of some volunteers and was held at Aburi/Ejanua a village in the Eastern Region of Ghana. 

From afternoon through to evening we screened the inhabitants of this village. We first started with a health talk on malaria and educated the people on the importance of protecting themselves from mosquitoes. Many of them had questions regarding the prevention of malaria and the use of the mosquito nets, which we answered.

 After the screening, our analysis showed that 42% of the children and 12 % of the adults screened tested positive for Malaria.in Ejuana. We also screened adults to know their blood pressure level and about 45% of them had hypertension while 40% of them had grade 2 or 3. Hypertension is a growing health problem in Ghana especially among women and a few men. Many of them were already aware of their blood pressure condition but were not taking any action to visit heath centers to seek medication and medical advice because the medical costs were too much for them.

All the people who tested positive for malaria were given medication and asked to also seek medical advice.  The adults who had high blood pressure were educated on how to live and maintain a healthy living and to also seek medical advice. After all screening had been done, the children were given some stationaries to use in school. 

This screening was very successful and many of the people were very grateful to Tanf Ghana. We were able to make this possible because of the help all our sponsors and volunteers have put in to help these people through Tanf Ghana.

Nancy is a bright 16 years old girl who is very passionate about education and would give her all to have access to education. Unfortunately, she had to drop out from school during her last year due to many difficulties that were preventing her from attaining the education she wanted. Some of these difficulties included luck of financial support from her parents to enable her continue with her schooling. She is staying with her single mother who's farming job is not stable enough to support her while her dad is nowhere to be found. Also the distance between her home and the school she attended was about 2 hours of walking and she has to cover that distance to and from school every day since she could not afford the fare of the vehicle that could convey people from that village to the nearest town where her school was located.

 It has been a year since she last went to school. Her favourite subject was science and she wants to become a medical doctor in future.

At Tanf Ghana, we know the importance of educating the girl child and the value of gender equality which is why we are ever ready to do all that we can to ensure that she enrolls back to school.

With the help of individual donors like you, we are preparing to send Nancy to school to finish her last year in Junior High school and proceed to senior high school to achieve her future dream of becoming a medical doctor.

 Follow us and we will keep you updated about Nancy and her education from present. Thank you for your support and as you keep supporting us, we can together change the lives of people like Nancy.

Some children are not able to attend school not just because they can’t just afford to pay fees but also because they probably are sick and can’t afford the hefty medical bills. Good health is one of the tickets of enjoying a happy and successful life.

Because we at Tanf know the importance of good health to individuals, we make it a priority to provide good health care initiatives for our scholarship holders. The Health insurance scheme enables our scholarship holders enjoy free health care and in some cases the insurance scheme enables them get drugs from the pharmacies without incurring any financial cost.

Every child has been given an insurance card which is valid for 5 years but has to be renewed yearly. Each child with this health insurance stands the chance of getting free medical care whenever the need arises. We do this to ensure that no child has to stay home because they are sick and can’t afford their medical bills.

We are currently arranging for over 500 other children who are on our waiting list to also enjoy free medical care. Our doors are open to all individuals who want to sponsor our national health insurance initiative. You can donate $10 per child to cover all 5 years of the insurance scheme.

Join us in promoting healthy living for a happy and successful life.
