This is Nuela. She is being raised by her single mother since her dad passed away when she was only 6 years old. Life has not been easy for both Nuela and her mum because her 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 to a higher chance of being infected. Tanf
Our TestimonialsWhat volunteers said about us
"The 2 months I spent with TANF Ghana were the best 2 months of my life. Such an amazing experience. I was lucky enough to be a volunteer teacher to the beautiful children, many of whom were sponsored through TANF Ghana. The sponsorship provides them with education and health care! Laud Kwaku Akuffo made the stay so comfortable, taking the volunteers to tourist locations around Ghana as well.

"GREAT WORK DONE Reverend Laud!
Children and the aged are often left in need, there are many ways to give back to benefit them. Nothing makes a bigger difference and the impact on children and the aged are often more profound when given quality time and attention. Whoever you are, you can help in your own way to by providing children and the aged in the community with good health, teaching materials and food to eat. This will in the long run help raise responsible and healthy children. You can also donate money if that’s the best or only way you can assist Laud to help these children. Fundraising is a vital way for TANF Ghana to raise community moral and build relationships within the community. Money will give much needed support to a variety of programs. If you can donate your time, that’s even better. Spend time with the children, watch them, help them, or teach them. So long as their health is a concern, I will always be around to help!"

"TANF Ghana is a wonderful organization and I loved working with them! Laud, who runs the NGO, is an incredible and hardworking man who puts all his effort into his work. I would really urge anyone to go and volunteer with TANF Ghana - or to just donate some money to support their work."
- Mikaela Loach
"I had a great time in Ghana and made such good friends that I decided to come back there again!
The accommodation provided is really fine, there is everything you need and Laud is always there if you need help. The kids are just lovely and kind, I spent the best moments of my trip with them, and teaching in the school next to Laud's place was a challenging and interesting experience.
Also, I really liked the fact that I could do whatever I wanted, with a lot of free time to discover the country and its inhabitants.
Volunteering with TANF Ghana was a real pleasure 🙂
I miss Ghana so much right now ❤"

"I stayed a month in Ghana working with TANF Ghana. I learnt a huge amount in my visit and experienced a completely different culture from my own. Hearing the children sing and dance in class was a highlight. In the weekdays I helped the teachers with the children in the classrooms. I found the teaching difficult, as it is very different from what I am used to and hard work in the heat, but I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the kids and learnt just as much from them as they did from me. On the weekends I had free time and was able to visit different areas along Ghana's coast. This free time was a gift and enabled me to explore and learn even more and added diversity to what I was seeing - instead of being in one place all the time. Overall a very positive experience and one that shaped who I am as a person now. Definitely would recommend to anyone who is interested in working in Africa with children and immersing yourself in their culture."
"My stay with TANF Ghana was an unforgettable experience. Laud cares so much. He tried to make my stay most comfortable even though he is really busy. I lived at his place with his nice family. If Laud wasn’t at home, there was always somebody who prepared food for me and checked if everything is fine. He is surrounded by only nice people. Rashida, one of Laud’s co-worker, did a good job showing me around Accra and spending time with me at and after school. One weekend Laud had time to do a really nice trip with Mai, another volunteer, and me and we had a lot of fun. In my second week I was at the hospital two hours from Accra. Therefore, I had to move to a different house. Laud prepared me well for my stay there.
More important, he is so passionate about his project, his volunteers and works so hard for it to improve and help more children. I can highly recommend experiencing volunteer work with TANF Ghana! Thanks Laud, thanks Rashida, thanks Ema, thanks Justice, thanks Godwin. "
"I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to sponsor a beautiful girl by the name of Mawuna, allowing her to get education and medical insurance. The updates from TANF were always a great way of knowing that the sponsorship money was going where it was meant! A few months later, I went to Ghana and visited Mawuna and all the lovely children in the school - it was amazing to see the difference my couple of dollars a week made in her life!"
"I really enjoyed the 5 weeks I spent in Ghana. Everyone I met in Ghana was so nice and made me feel at home. Working in the clinic was a great learning experience for me and the kids at the school were so amazing. I also really got to embrace Ghanaian culture and the whole experience was just unforgettable."
