MR. JEFF SLANGER is the President and Founder of Aid for Girls and Children Foundation. Kebeh is the Executive Director of AFGACF in Ghana. Our passion to assist needy Girls and Children Is an inborn desire to help the less privileged as well as our desires to transform their lives in positive ways, with no intention for rewards or financial gains. We believe in the worth and dignity of all people and their ability to learn, unlearn and relearn.
We grew up in a country (Liberia), that experienced bloody civil wars for many years at different intervals. More than 250,000 people were killed in Liberia’s bloody civil wars and thousands more fled the fighting to neighboring countries. They grew up amidst lots of social crisis, economic instabilities and witnessed first hand social injustices. These experiences arouse our passion and desire to help the less privileged and speak against Social exclusions and injustice.
AFGACF’s Primary Goal is to help underprivileged Girls and Children in poor Communities obtain quality education. We are however proud of the lives we have been able to touch here in Ghana and are equally excited about the future of Africa.
