A former teacher by profession, originally born and bred in Kpando, Volta Region of Ghana, he trained at Jasikan College of Education, then at the University of Education, Winneba Ghana, where he obtained a Bachelor’s Education (B.Ed.) in Mathematics. Once a teacher, always a teacher, as he enjoyed teaching high school mathematics in Ghana before moving to the United States in 2011. His love for teaching and passion for less endowed children inspired him to help his mother up to date open, manage and care for vulnerable children and train school drop-out and youth in employable skills in Ghana.
While in Ghana, Ven handled everything from planning volunteers’ arrivals to and from the airport to program sites to the care and well-being of the children. Upon relocating to Connecticut, he still committed to remaining a vital part of the orphanage (now childcare) despite the long distance. In 2020, Ryvanz-Mia Charity officially became a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization in the United States. With your assistance and help, I firmly believe that together we can rescue as many lives as possible to improve children’s conditions in the short and long term. “If the money we donate helps one child or can ease the pain of one parent, those funds are well spent”– Carl Karcher.
I look forward to working with you to achieve our shared goals of transforming the lives of the underprivileged. Feel free to share your ideas by contacting me.
Venunye (meaning Merciful God), or Ven as he affectionately called, saw the hardship these vulnerable children faced and understood the disparity in Ghana and its communities. Unlike the United States, they lack the infrastructure to lead everyday life. Knowing he could do more, Ven devoted his time, love, and passion to improving life for the vulnerable. He did this through various initiatives that support, feed, educate and empower a vulnerable child in need.
Ven, originally from Ghana, understands the disparity in regions devotes any time outside of his passion of working for the orphanage to caring for the elderly across the state with Companion and Homemakers, a nonmedical agency. He is proud to donate a portion of every paycheck to vulnerable and needy children to have a quality education.
