Who we are

About us

We exists to bring men, women and children of all walks of life to the holistic benefit of an empowered environment.

The Greenlife Foundation was established in December, 2011 by Reverend Benny W. Xatse and Mrs. Victoria Yeboah Xatse. Initially they were committed to giving assistance to various needy and vulnerable children, as well as orphans and widows as they go about their everyday life. With the growth of their desire to give this charitable act a more serious and organized focus, the need to have an office from which to coordinate the care, support and the needed atmosphere to build the right relationship with the people involved came into play.

Greenlife Foundation was formed on a strong foundation of love and care with the major objective of building and developing the people involved. We aim at giving the kind of help needful in preparing the beneficiaries in every good way for the challenges of the future.

In regard to the governments call to individuals, corporate and non–governmental organizations to join hands in the struggle to support the ever increasing number of vulnerable women and health challenge issues in deprived communities in Ghana, we saw a need as part of the Ghanaian Community to render a helping hand through the creation of Greenlife Foundation, under which we have these arms:

  • Medical outreach programs to communities, junior and senior high schools
  • Women empowerment
  • Education (reaching out to orphans and vulnerable children)
  • General Labour (Projects that benefits the community)

Our projects

We have a mission to (1) Reduce poverty and unemployment by providing livelihood skills training. (2) Educate, give health care and support to deprived communities (3) Embark on relief and development program for the poor and needy.

The Greenlife foundation, seeing the various challenges within the municipal on maternal and child health issues took the responsibility of moving to the various hard to reach communities and deep villages where access to health is a big challenge in order to examine pregnant women educate them on the need for antenatal care, hospital delivery and follow up. The foundation is assisting many pregnant women and supporting them through the nine month journey.

The foundation in collaboration with the Wenchi Municipal Assembly has started day care schools in some communities where there are no schools for kids, so as the kids are in school learning, mothers can focus on their little business to earn living and support the family.
Education is seen as crucial to boosting Africa’s economic and social development.

Health issues are things that cannot be laid aside since one way or the other one will be confronted with one illness or another now or in the near future. Many don’t appreciate good health until something goes wrong in their body.
A healthy and sound body is worth more a million of dollars. Unfortunately, the areas of serious and special concern among girls of the Senior High School/J. H. S within the Brong Ahafo are rarely addressed by the educational curriculum and the family welfare programs.

"Even though, its been already more than a year ago, we remember the moment arriving in Ghana as if it was yesterday. But lets start at the beginning.
The planning of our trip to Ghana worked out really uncomplicated with the help of Victoria Yeboah, who sent back all the needed paper-work quickly.
And then arriving at the airport it felt wonderful to have somewhere to land: Pastor Benny picked us at the airport and travelled with us the long way up to Wenchi the next day. Arriving in our new home, the five children and their caretaker David welcomed us with warmth and joy. We both had a room for ourselves, a shared bathroom and got the most wonderful ghanian dishes. What a good place to be!
Because of our profession as midwifes we had the chance to observe and assist the work in the hospital, all organised, planned and mentored by Victoria Yeboah. This was very interesting, as well as challenging and offered a first insight in the ghanaian health system and -work. Here, we also got in contact with another member of Greenlife Foundation, Doctor Ben, with whom we shared inspiring and interesting conversations. As one of the doctors, who takes part of the Greenlife Foundations work in the villages he could tell us about the practical side of their work, the challenges and the support they need from different sides to make their helping process possible.
In addition to that, we discovered different institutions of the ghanaian health system: the maternity homes. Talking to the community health workers, nurses and midwifes working there completed our understanding of the work in maternity care and community health care. There we learned how the different professions work together and organise themselves to be able to provide the most possible support to pregnant women, mothers, baby’s, children and families.
Back to the work of greenlife foundation, we followed Victoria Yeboah to the villages to observe her work. It didn’t need one moment to understand how incredibly important their work is since the capacity of the governmental supported health work seemed to get less the more rural the area got. People have to travel for hours to see a doctor, mostly by foot since the transport is expensive and sometimes not possible at all because of the state, the roads are in.
So we learned how the organising and planning of the helping actions in the villages works and how the members of Greenlife foundation addressed their interest to the people to be able to reach as many as possible.
Leaded by the same thought of helping as many as possible, the Greenlife Foundation members teach in schools about health issues such as hygiene, prevention of HIV, sexual transmitted diseases and much more. Following Victoria Yeboah to such health educational programmes added the experience of ghanaian schools and the educational system. But not enough, there was more to learn about Greenlife Foundation. The direct help to people and children in desperate situations, giving health advise or helping out with money, food and clothes, all gathered by networking with different helping people, who give donations.
In addition to the safe and clean home, they got through the Greenlife Foundation, the five orphans, we lived with even got the chance to go to a private school to support their chances of higher education. In the same thought of giving children and young people a perspective the members of Greenlife Foundation organised a football-game with different aged-groups to support those, who show a special talent with regular training.
Always concerned about our wellbeing and wanting to give us the most rich, diverse and overall good experience of Ghana, Victoria Yeboah invited us to join her to a programme in a different region in the south of Ghana, where we learned more about the several languages und cultural background as well as the special needs and challenges of the health workers in that particular region.
And finally, to complete our picture of health and medical support, offered in Ghana, we even visited a traditional healer, who helps people by using his intuition and spiritual ability’s.
Looking back now, we can tell, that this time in Ghana enriched our lives with different perspectives and changed our way of thinking as well as working in our home country Germany.
We have the most respect to the great passion with which the members of Greenlife Foundation, especially their head, Victoria Yeboah face the various challenges and problems occurring along their wonderful way of help and support for those whose need it the most.

Forever grateful, we remain respectfully,
yours sincerely"
