Our Mission

Improve the quality of life in rural Ghana by working in partnerships with Ghanaians to build capacity and self-sufficiency in the areas of water, sanitation, health, education, and economic development.

Fortunately, there are people like the Quarteys. Dr. Seth and Grace Quartey are two Pennsylvania residents who decided that the dire situation in their home country, Ghana, called for action. Because of the extreme need they found in Apam, they created Building Solid Foundations, a nonprofit organization that will change the face of rural Ghana.

Join with us as we improve the lives of the thousands of people in Ghana who face death and disease, poverty and illiteracy.

Together we can change the future.
