Our objective is support of development projects which are supported by the local people.
It will be projects which will structurally contribute to developing underprivileged areas,
in which the underprivileged children and women are the most important targets.
The start of Support Foundation:
The foundation started out of the Egyam Orphanage Foundation Ghana. A lot of goals were reached within 5 years. The children are fine, the building ready and there is enough back-up for exploitation and schooling. The Egyam Orphanage Foundation will go on as it was and is and takes care of the orphans.
Two pictures as an example; children when they arrived in the orphanage in 2007 and next to that 2 years later.

children in the primary and secondary school. The children of the
orphanage also go to this school.
The Junior High School (J.H.S.) is in a terrible state and needs to
be renovated. Asbestos roof is broken which can cause lungcancer, rooms
are devided by bamboo.
are only 4 toilets for more than a 1000 children. Because of this, the
children do their needs in the bushes. This causes diseases like
dysentery, cholera, diarrhea. Which can even lead to death.
there will be 6 toilets ready in the renovated old block and 5 next to
the abondoned block. There are also new urinals made.
The compost of the toilets can be used for agriculture

can stimulate the economy, although they work for a low fee, because it
is for their own children.
