The Story

Home of 40+ children without parents, or whose parents can no longer support them, Becky’s Home, established in 2013, houses and cares for children ages 3-16. The current home has been such a success there is now a waitlist and thus the home can no longer efficiently meet the needs of all of the children. Their current situation is one room for all of the kids to sleep in which leads to highly contagious diseases such as ringworm, measles and colds.  Thanks to grassroots fundraising efforts by owner Seth Asiedu, the new and improved home is almost complete for the children to move into. Here, the children will have their own bedrooms separated by gender with clean beds, working toilets, a big kitchen, a library, their own clinic and a fun room for the children to enjoy.

The benefits of this new home are endless. To start, this will protect them from illnesses like malaria and typhoid.  In addition to health improvements, the new home will improve emotional health, safety and create a thriving living environment for this incredible community.

But, we need your help!!

We are now in need of furnishing the home with the things the kids need most, beds with real mattresses, mosquito nets, cubbies to call their own, chairs, tables, kitchen goods, indoor plumbing, water filters for drinking and other necessary improvements to enrich their lives. For example, having a water filter will almost entirely eradicate the prevalence of typhoid amongst the children. All donations will go directly to supporting these endeavors. With your help, these incredible children will have a nice clean bed to call their own.

We cannot thank you enough for your support. This is a continued effort to enhance the lives of 40+ children and your donations can only bring us closer to our goal of creating a strong foundation for these children’s futures.

Hello everyone!
As you know, we raised enough money for some furniture and transportation for the kids. A few days ago the kids were able to move and we've uploaded some pictures for you to see. Now they have beds, tables and spoons for the first time in their lives. We can't thank you enough for your support.
This really is a great step but there's still a lot that needs to be done, as there are still things needed to finish furnishing the home. 

Please, keep sharing this page.
Nothing is too little when the alternative is nothing.

Thank you so much again!

Warmest regards,
Becky's Foundation

We have an amazing update for Becky's Foundation. Starting Sunday September 27th, the children will be moving into their new home. We have raised enough money on other platforms to purchase beds and transportation for the kids. While it is a great step in the right direction, we still need so much more in terms of furniture, medicine, school supplies etc for the new home. 

Please share this page with your networks. Even a little goes such a long way.

Thank you so much!

Warmest regards,
Becky's Foundation
