The World Love Foundation
THE WORLD LOVE FOUNDATION We are a registered 501(c)3 corporation with a primary focus of improving the lives of rural communities through health, sanitation, education and economic development.
World Wide: Our focus is clean water for the prevention of water born illnesses. We are working in the Upper East Region of Ghana, a remote rural area which borders Burkina Faso and Togo. The area is dry and poor with less than half of the population able to access safe water. We are currently planning additional projects in Central America, and beyond.
Tours Each year we take a small group of travelers on our Ghana Tour to see our numerous projects. Every Ghana tour will build 1 new borehole that will provide water to at least 1,500 people including their livestock and water for the farms.
Livestock Projects By giving families a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we empower them to turn lives of hunger and poverty into self-reliance and hope. $100 USD will buy three goats in Ghana. This improves a families nutrition and generates income in sustainable ways. The recipients of our Livestock Projects agree to give one of its animal's offspring to another family in need. Passing on the Gift.
Perma nets and Lifestraws In 2011 we joined with the fight against Malaria and delivered 200 insecticidal nets on our Ghana tour to the communities of our clean water projects. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates an annual occurrence of 300-500 million cases of malaria worldwide. The toll is the highest in developing countries where at least one million people die from the disease. Young children account for most of these deaths. Lifestraws are a portable water filtration device we give to communities that are waiting for their clean water well.
