About Us

Golden Sunbeam Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charity organization with a mission to build resilient communities in West Africa.

Our Vision

Our vision at Golden Sunbeam Foundation is to one-day see an Africa that is thriving with opportunities, finally achieving self-reliance and passing on a legacy of political and socio-economic stability to the next generation.


Our Mission

Our mission is to lay the foundation for long-term political and socio-economic stability by building resilient communities in West Africa that can leverage education, innovation and entrepreneurship to build possitive values, overcome inter-generational poverty, and attain the dignity of self-reliance.

CAMPAIGNS

The following campaigns have been idenfitied by Golden Sunbeam Foundation as the most urgent and impactful to the lives and wellbeing of hundreds of communities in West Africa.

BASIC & SECONDARY EDUCATION

Donations to this campaign provides tuition scholarships for needy students, so they can have transformative education as well. These scholarships encourage social responsibility among private schools, allowing them to bear the burden of helping those around them more effectively. Learning and educational materials are also purchased with these funds, to support classroom teaching with hands-on projects and lesson demonstrations rather than lectures.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

West Africa has a marvelous number of innovative and creative people who need an outlet to let their innovations shine. So many people find interesting ways to use their talents to solve problems in their communities with only the raw materials around them. The Entrepreneurship Campaign is aimed at providing ways to bring the problem-solving ideas of these people to life. Your contribution provides the means to scale up these indigenous solutions to make them into a small business, or a grow a business, leading to self-reliance.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

In West Africa, simple daily problems can quickly spin out of control. Power outage is bad and much worse when it affects a hospital full of sick people. A rainstorm washing out the road is bad and worse when your child is sick and medical care is far away. Being prepared for small, daily emergencies through power backup systems, home medical training and supplies, and stores of food and water can save the lives of children and adults throughout West Africa.
