Children's Health International

Over the past decade, Children's Health International has made a formidable impact on the lives of children and families in under-resourced areas including Western Africa. Children’s Health International (CHI) is a registered non-profit organization 501(c)(3) dedicated to saving lives, educating children and their families, and providing adequate healthcare to children with infectious and communicable diseases. Not only has CHI been able to donate thousands of dollars in medical supplies and equipment to impoverished areas but also, it has  undertaken helping over 100 pre-school children begin their lives on the solid foundation of a sound education, healthy lifestyles and well-being.

Sponsorship of the Anum Preschool 

After visiting Anum Preschool 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 of Anum. As an organization focused on the well-being of children, we recognize that education is a priceless gift that should be given to every child.  This right to an education is one that every child deserves irrespective of social status.  CHI is dedicated to meeting the basic needs of the children of the Anum preschool - one child at a time.  With your support, we are not only able to support the academics but we facilitate learning by providing hot meals to children who would otherwise attempt to learn on empty stomachs.  Great strides have been made since our initial visit in 2005 and we look forward to continued success.  

Partnership with Kid's HOPE Project 
As a result of the Kid's Hope Project (KHP), CHI has been a proud recipient of grants from the Kohl's Cares program.  Led by, then 9 year old, Maya, the Kid's HOPE Project is all about kid's helping other kid's who are in need of a helping hand.  One of her largest projects was hosting events to acquire hundreds of dollars in arts and educational supplies, stuffed animals and books for the children of the Anum Preschool.  A small handful of volunteers accompanied CHI Board member and her then 5 year old daughter as they dropped off the donated supplies to the children of the Anum preschool. Most recently KHP collected toiletries and other supplies for the homeless. The Kid's HOPE Project continues to inspire children around the globe to reach out to  other children.  It only takes ONE person to make a BIG difference!

Shipping school supplies, clothing & medical supplies to Ghana
Using the funds you provide, we send shipments of medical supplies, clothing, school supplies, toiletries and books to rural villages in Ghana, West Africa. 

Operation Clean 
A healthy environment is a necessary part of every child's life.  CHI is working to help children live, play and go to school in areas that are both clean and safe.  CHI volunteers and members of the Kid's HOPE project team partnered together to clean up a local Montgomery County park and school playground area.
