The black star was adopted from the flag of the Black Star Line, a shipping line incorporated by Marcus Garvey that operated from 1919 to 1922, and gives the Ghana national football team their nickname, the Black Stars.

Healthy Cities Foundation
Our Charity work has one goal. Help the weak in the society, especially mothers and to become financially self-sustaining.
• Sponsoring Vocational training
• Sponsoring acquiring work material/machines
• Introducing their product to market
• Management training.
Most of our clients don’t have anybody in their family to help them get good educational foundation,
that means they have to stop and find means of survival when they are still too young to develop skills needed for employment, or establishing an enterprise.
Our intervention is to sponsor those willing to learn a skill at a vocational school in skills that make them self-employed. Skills until now include mechanic training, sewing, beans and accessories making, vegetable gardening.
Then we sponsor them by helping them to acquire a simple machine needed (e.g. sewing machine for a tailor) to start making cloths. Could be tools to repair motor (bikes) or repair cars. So not a very big investment in tools but they can use it to earn a living. They have to pay back the cost of the tools we give once they start earning income, so there is revolving fund to help others who come on board to also acquire working capital
We introduce them to the market where they can get clients build their base to expand their income possibilities.
We give them management training. To manage their finances, business, and their strategies to grow their income possibilities.
So this is what our charities do in Ghana.
Europe we most involved in raising funds to support our work in Ghana. So we work as renewable energy consultants and the income generated is used to support the work in Ghana.
