Meet our Founder

Since our start in 2009, our focus has been the children of Ghana, West Africa. When Ama, our founder, was even a young child, she felt compassion for orphans and knew in her heart that someday she would help them. After moving to the United States, getting married, finishing her degree and having two children of her own, Ama knew it was time to make another dream come true – help the orphans. So in 2009 she traveled back to Ghana and went to a village she had heard of that was in extreme poverty. She quickly made contacts and found 50 orphans who she could help. On that trip she bought food, clothes, toys and hired a care-giver who could cook for these little ones. But once she returned to the US, she wanted to do even more. This sparked The Heart Smiles. ama
