Every Child Deserves Hope!

Welcome to the YFS Foundation, a Not-for-Profit 501 (c) (3) Corporation Intent on Instilling Hope Around Our World.

There are about 65 million young girls in various developing countries that are not given a chance to attend school. These girls traditionally marry young and many become mothers when they themselves are still children. They are unable to ever earn a meaningful wage, and they know of no reasons to encourage their own kids to attend school. This continues a cycle of poverty and despair in their communities and holds down the development of entire countries.

We believe that EVERY CHILD DESERVES HOPE!!! For less than $1 a day, you can change her world by giving her an education. The YFS Foundation, through this help, is providing essential educational supports to girls in developing countries – instilling first-generation literates and future generations of informed, hopeful citizens, communities and countries.

We also know the powerful potential for good that new and innovative science and technology has on our world. This is why we provide essential resources to high school students to pursue their college educations and become our future researchers, scientists, doctors and engineers.

The YFS Foundation has a Memorandum of Understanding and ongoing partnership with IIMPACT, a well-respected and efficient not-for-profit corporation in India. Our foundation is now supporting the ongoing education of sixty young girls in three 'Learning Centers' in this country. None of the girls had ever been in school before, nor were there plans for them to attend, until our help arrived!

Hope for Sisi’s Kids (HOSIKIDS) is a foundation that supports the development of Bawaleshie Elementary and Middle School, a rural community school in the Greater Accra region of Ghana, West Africa. HOSIKIDS was founded in loving memory of Ms. Gladys Komle Tawiah (1942-2010). Sisi, as she is affectionately called by family and friends passed away on Friday, April 23rd 2010 from a rare cancer of the uterus at a relatively young age of 67 years in East Amherst, NY. She retired as an educationist after 42 years of service to the Ghana Education Service. At a young age she started her career as a school teacher, teaching in rural community schools until she settled as the District Education Officer, Garrison Education Office of the Ghana Armed Forces Schools. Following her death the grandchildren of Sisi created this organization to fulfill Sisi’s dream and vision of providing quality education for rural communities. Learn more about HOSIKIDS.
