I first met Ama three years or so ago. I was instantly drawn to her energy. I was invited last year to a presentation of her nonprofit. She and her team are doing a wonderful job for these children. They are blessed to have her!

I met Ama and heard about the children several years ago. We sponsor a child and hope to go visit her and all the children next year. I love this organization and the work being done to give the children the best lives they can give them.

Heart Smiles is an amazing organization. My family and I were introduced to Ama and this inspiring group a few years ago. We sponsor child and it is nice to see how these children grow and prosper. My husband organized computers for these children to help them navigate through their academic journey. What Heart Smiles is doing is truly wonderful.

Ama and her team are phenomenal!
We met in school, and I remember her telling me that she chose to continue education in order to earn more money to provide for her kids. Her entire being is for her kids.
I will forever support her organization.

This organization is full of devoted selfless genuine and hard working people. The first time we met them they treated us like family. My husband and two sons played the Gala in 2018. It was an amazing night full of giving. My school has also been involved in donating school supplies and writing letters to the children in Ghana. My family has definitely made a connection with them and we look forward to new memories with this organization.

This charity does so much good for so many children and I am so proud to be a board member. 100% of all money raised goes to our kids and we all volunteer our time! My son also volunteers and is learning that we may not be able to change the world but maybe we can change the world for a few!

This is a wonderful organization which was formed by my beautiful friend Ama. She is truly devoted to the children . My family has been sponsoring 2 young boys for the past 5 years. I Love to see them growing up in a safe environment, where they are being educated, feed, provide with clothing, shelter and all their essential things to prosper and become young men and women with a trade and education to make a difference in our world.

This organization is one I hold dear to my heart. Mainly because of its lovely founder, Ama, who greets everyone with a smile and shares her passion for the children and community she serves with pride. It has been an honor being a guest at The Heart Smiles events and I will continue to support their mission and bring people to their worthy organization.

It should be on there now...you’re AMAZING & I love you!

My review, “This is the most worthy nonprofit I’ve ever been associated with. I have sponsored 3 children for many years and it’s so delightful when I hear from them and know how well they are doing. One beautiful woman, Ama Osei-Bonsu, started this years ago and when she said she would “build a home” for the children of Ghana...she did! She is so inspiring, full of love and compassion for these children, and most of all, she is humble in her work. My children and grandson are a part of this organization as well, and my hope is they will continue this long after I am gone. May God continue to bless you Ama & the children of Heart Smiles! “

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! ❤️

This organization is changing so many little lives for the better! I love doing work for THS because it is so humbling to see these kids appreciate so little. I have been apart of this organization for 3 years and hopefully for many more to come!

This is one of the best organizations that I have ever had the pleasure of being apart of. It is so incredibly humbling to see smiles on the childrens' faces from giving them something like clothes, shoes, and books, that we take so much for granted here in U.S.

I have been a Heart Smiles sponsor for 6 years now. This summer I traveled to Ghana and took my 21 year old daughter with me to spend three weeks there with the kids and the founder, Ama Bonsu. We saw first hand and experienced in the flesh what this charity does for the kids. I saw where every penny goes, and saw how happy and healthy the kids are. The village children came daily to look on, and I wish they fared as well. Through specific earmarked donations from sponsors, THS also sponsored a village health fair, giving free medical checkups, food, and medicines to the local people. It was glorious and SO needed. I have known Ama for going on seven years, and never have I met a more genuine honest person with more integrity and love in their heart. She lives to help these children. There is not a more deserving charity, nor one so hard won through the work of one woman with a mission and a dream to serve others. I am honored to be a part and call her friend, and truly blessed to sponsor 8 children financially and 54 spiritually and emotionally. The call me "Mama Lisa" and no other name sounds as sweet. Half my heart is in Ghana forever.

I donate to several charities for children, but this one is closest to my heart. Started by one woman and a dream to spend her life helping children. I see their efforts continually compounded, their joys and sorrows are open and honest, and I receive continual updates on not only the children K sponsor, but the others as well. Photo updates on the building progress, and all of the aspects of aid they provide. I know board members personally and some life long, and can vouch for the utmost integrity. I am a monthly supporter of 3 siblings, having started with one child. I will continue to support more children through Heart Smiles as I am able. They give all they can for the children.
