Step by Step, Day by Day, a Journey of HOPE Begins

We are proud to announce an addition of new children from the streets after 5 months of scanning hot spots within our City Centres. Their parents/guardians have been successfully located and taken out of the streets to their various homes.

The identified youngsters after signing a mutual contract with ROHC will be enrolled into Pre-School classes to guide them gradually into school life, social life and reintegration back into society and their family.

The new beneficiaries come from unique and different backgrounds. The influences of the street life are still present but it is wonderful that they are highly motivated to learn new things and unlearn negative street attitudes.

The Legacy of Fr Konrad; Rays of Hope Centre

Father Konrad Lienhard, born 16th November 1942 in Zunsweier, Germany is the founder of “Rays of Hope Centre”.

He established the project in Ashaiman, Ghana in 1997. With his charisma to encourage people around him to join his mission, more than 2 million Euros have been raised for his second home in Ghana and lots of individuals have been affected and followed his footsteps.

Since 1997, he has given beneficiaries the chance to go to school and hope for a more independent future. Moreover, he enables the exchange of different cultures by sending German volunteers to support the project.  Another great achievement was the opening of the WEM Centre in 2015 which is a home to some of the beneficiaries. He was one of the main factors that made the opening possible by raising funds.

The project in Ghana was not his only success. He established a KIM-Youth-Center (Catholic Youth Work) for criminal adolescents in Paderborn, Germany. The institution developed itself later on as one of the biggest social institutions in the area.

Father Lienhard was diagnosed with cancer and had to stop his priestly working functions. During the morning hours of 10th of October, 2017, Father Konrad Lienhard passed on peacefully and followed Gods call.

We are very thankful for all his great commitment and for all his love he shared with us.

May the seeds that he sowed continue to bear the Lords fruits.

"Man is the perfection of the universe … and charity is the perfection of love"

St. Francis de Sales
