In June 2005, I had the opportunity to go and visit Anum in Ghana, West Africa--the hometown of my father and my aunt, Mrs. Grace Kumi Aaron, founder of Children’s Health International. After visiting Anum Nursery School in Ghana, West Africa, the board members of CHI decided to expand the mission of our organization to include the improvement of education for the children starting with the Anum Nursery School. Visit our Gallery for a presentation of the conditions observed during the visit to Anum Nursery School in the summer of 2005. During the visit, those of us attendance were so inspired by the teachers and students we met at the school that we took the charge of expanding our mission. What we saw at the Anum Nursery School truly touched our lives forever. We hope that after viewing this website you will be as touched and inspired as we were after our visit to Anum Nursery School, and you will become a participant and proponent of our expanded mission to raise funds to improve the education of, and secure a successful future for the students of Anum Nursery School.
We encourage you to continue to visit our website for updated information about our organization and our mission. Thank you and God Bless.

There is so much that we want to do for the communities that we serve but we can't do it without your support. This list details a majority of our recent initiatives but we simply cannot do it without you..
Grace Kumi Aaron,
Children's Health International's mission is to save lives by educating children and providing access to adequate healthcare. and safe environments both locally and abroad.
“Children are our most vulnerable global citizens. They are our collective future, yet in so many ways we fail to ensure that they possess everything necessary to thrive. This is where CHI is working to fill the gap through provision of adequate healthcare, education and a safe environment!”
