Welcome to the Ghana Initiative for Valued Education web site.
FEDERAL I.D. 26-3243821

GIVE (Ghana Initiative for Valued Education) started with the grass roots efforts of one individual who quickly found others who wanted to help. The results are a testament to the notion that a few like minded individuals can make a significant difference in people's lives. GIVE has focused on accomplishing two primary objectives in Ghana, West Africa; fund the construction of classrooms and provide academic scholarships. While we have received corporate support, the majority of our funding is from individual donors and proceeds from our annual benefit which includes a silent auction. We are successful because we are frugal with our donations and a GIVE representative works directly on-site with contractors and educational professionals to ensure our funds are spent wisely. All GIVE positions are voluntary and there are no GIVE funds used for travel or other personal expenses.

Mission Statement: 
Ghana Initiative for Valued Education is a secular 501 (c) (3) non-profit which provides educational opportunities for children in Ghana, West Africa. Founded in 2006, we are a volunteer organization with no paid staff or expense accounts. All donations are applied to the construction of classrooms and scholarships awards.



Students representing a number of schools in the Ada Foah area line up for the 2017-18 GIVE Scholarship Awards Program. Our sincere thanks to Mr. Dickson Agyeman (front row left with GIVE shirt) and his staff with the Ghana Wildlife Division for their 16 years of support. Our work in Ada Foah would not be possible without their help.


In Memoriam

Please join the GIVE Family and our Supporters in extending our condolences to the Baker family and friends. Mrs. Elizabeth Baker was our Director Emeritus and a tireless advocate for GIVE and our work in educating Ghana's young men and women. Without her support over the years our work would not have been possible.
