2023: We are having our 9th Annual Gala this fall! Stay tuned for updates. We have more to fund in Zambia and we are excited to continue our work there! The trustees are also hoping to visit Zambia so we can see first hand how The Growing Hearts of Africa has made an impact on the underprivileged areas with the help of donors like you!
2022: This year we focused both on education and medical needs in Zambia. Through the work of Dr. Ken Peters we were able to build a school in Zambia and this year we are looking to expand the school because the enrollment has gone up significantly! In addition to the school house building, we are also funding teacher housing as well as books and supplies that the students need to learn successfully. We also fund clean water for the community so the students and their families have access to clean water.
2021: During the pandemic, GHA was able to provide COVID 19 PPE to those in need in Tanzania. We were then also able to provide them with the medical equipment and supplies they so desperately needed. In total we were able to fund nearly $100,000 to help hospitals in Tanzania
2020: GHA was able to fund the building of desks for a local school in a remote village in Dodoma, Zambia. We have plans to help them even further in 2022 with more educational needs.
Message from Dr. Ken Peters who helped us access this particular school in Zambia: “Had a very emotional tour of Mukuni Village today. Visited the school who received the 50 desks we purchased with the support of Growing Hearts of Africa. There is a deep commitment to education and great need. The children were amazing and so excited. I was humbled seeing the families living in grass roof huts, without running water, electricity or the comforts we take for granted in the United States. Over the years I have met several great friends who live in the village and who I trust. I want to continue to work with them on focused projects for education. Please consider making a donating to Growing Hearts of Africa.”
