The Heart Smiles is truly the most amazing organization! My son did his Eagle Scout project for them and sent all of the kids a backpack with clothing and personal care items. The kids wrote letters, drew pictures, and sent many photographs of them wearing their new clothing and backpacks. This is an organization you can fully trust. They are changing lives. I was so impressed with their work, I joined their effort and have been honored to work with them.

I know the founder and the president of the board and know that every dime raised goes to the children in Ghana. I love being a volunteer for them and a sponsor for little Margaret, while my husband sponsors Bruce, whose feet were straightened through the collaboration with this foundation, Catholic Charities in Ghana and the amazing Doctors Without Borders. I am proud to be a volunteer with The Heart Smiles Organization

It has been a distinct pleasure to be associated with such a driven group of volunteers with The Heart Smiles Foundation. The children in Ghana who were having to take care of each other inspired the name of the foundation. Because people care enough, these children now have a childhood,an education,and nutritious meals and healthcare. My heart smiles when I see the picture of the two 7 year old twins whom my husband and I sponsor. What a positive impact for their corner of the world!

This non-profit organization is the best organization I've ever been associated with. I have seen firsthand how HeartSmiles has blessed some many children in such a relatively short amount of time. From getting the children to school and educated to building them a place to call home with running water! One remarkable lady had a vision to help those less fortunate then herself...and she definitely has! I absolutely love to see my sponsored child thriving and it's all thanks to Ama Osei-Bonsu and her dream come true! ❤️

I met Ama Osei-Bonsu at work. She told me about her cause and I was captivated by her passion to give back to her country. I have shared her mission with others; patients, staff, friends, and family. All the compassion and love this organization demonstrates should be an example to the world...if we all pay it forward and remember someone, somewhere did the same for us...we would all be so much better off. Special thanks to Ama for introducing me to this organization and I look forward to working with her and the others in the near future.

The Heart Smiles organization is a labor of love for the founder, Mrs. Ama Osei-Bonsu. With the support of the board members and volunteers, the heart smiles organization is committed to providing a better way of life for 60 orphaned children in Ghana, West Africa. The board and foundation supporters work tirelessly to make sure that the children are healthy, fed and, have uniforms. All of the proceeds from the sale of the fair trade Nepal bracelets, various art pieces and jewelry from Ghana, and all other fund raisers go directly to fulfill the mission of the The Heart Smiles organization. The foundation has been prepared and we are excited to break ground on our building project in Ghana! With the help of dedicated supporters and volunteers we have been able to accomplish much in three years. Want to know more?

This organization has truly changed lives. It was founded by loving people, who care about the needs of children and their families in Ghana. So many lives, in Ghana, have been Blessed by this organization. With donations, Heart Smiles, has been able to provide an orphanage and a school in Ghana. I love this organization because the families at an elementary school, help with fundraising, and the students know exactly how the money is used. This past year, each class had a picture of a child from Ghana that they were helping. It truly made the fundraising experience "more real."
