Mission Statement

The Fever Relief Fund (FRF) provides educational and athletic programs geared towards nurturing excellence, building essential values and developing leadership potential among the youth in developing countries.

Objectives

Our goal is to increase active participation in sports and extra-curricular educational activities among young people, especially those who are endowed with ability, yet lack the resources to enable them prosper. FRF is committed to responsible giving and social investment in developing countries such as Ghana, where young people are often saddled with the responsibility of working petty jobs to supplement their parents’ income, or turn to crime in order to make ends meet. FRF will hence work to reduce the financial burden facing the youth as they progress within their chosen sport, recreational activities, educational and professional goals.

By providing after-school and other community-based athletic and educational programs, FRF provides appropriate ways to build character and skills among the future leaders of the developing world, while allowing kids to be kids. Data shows that for young people, participation in sports and other hobbies plays an important role of increasing self-esteem and self-worth. Through engaging in sports and outdoor activity, the youth gain a chance to be inspired and motivated, and are able to set goals and take responsibility for their own lives and for their communities.

 

VISION

Fever Relief Fund is a grassroots organization with the goal of coming to the aid of  Ghana’s poorest individuals and families ,addressing local needs through a unique, holistic approach to community development.  This approach promotes and encourages self-reliance, self-esteem and creative, integrated solutions to systemic community deficiencies. Our new journey is bold.  It is sparked by the potential of the nonprofit sector to deliver even greater impact, and is fueled by our own desire for sustained impact and growth.  Our ambition is simple: we will create the most effective nonprofit sector in the country, and we will create the most effective center for nonprofit performance and innovation in the country. Ultimately, our journey will be propelled by people with vision and talent, who are impassioned by an abject need to excel and who value nonprofits as essential to who we are and how we grow as a society.

Fever Relief Fund was established to inspire and motivate youth to become involved in community activities, set goals and take responsibility for their own lives and neighborhoods. For individuals with special needs, participation in sports not only increases self-esteem and engages them in a healthy and active lifestyle, but also increases their sense of self-worth, while encourage them to expand and explore their career aspirations.

Fever Relief Fund offers both group and individual tutoring, after school and counseling activities. As we continue to bolster our Community Outreach Program, we aim to reduce isolation and provide positive role models for the youth. Parental interaction skills and crisis intervention will be the primary tools used to achieve success in their lives. Lastly, by providing professional and emotional support through our programs we hope to build trust and confidence in our youth participants. We also recognize that the foundation of successful leadership comes from effectively creating, nurturing and channeling relationships toward shared goals.

 

FISCAL TRANSPARENCY

Fever Relief Fund is dedicated to being transparent and efficient with the resources with which our donors entrust us.  We comply with all Federal regulations regarding tax law and financial accountability. Our goals are also straightforward.  We will create high performing organizations with greatly valuable output; we will drive nonprofit adaptability and systemic innovation for sustained impact; we will align and leverage the power of our network to catalyze a unified environment of support for the work and worth of nonprofits; we will inspire our people to invest themselves in building, not just a resource, but an indelible asset for our community and for the sector.
