About The Founder

 I, Madam Mavis Johnson, is the founder of Yaa Nhyira Foundation. I am a Ghanaian by nationality, I lived in the beautiful country of Ghana for over thirty years before migrating to the United States of America.

     While living in Ghana, I witnessed first-hand how difficult it was for less fortunate families to make ends meet and provide common necessities such as shelter and food for their loved ones; it broke my heart and that was when I promised myself in my heart that if a door ever opens for me, I will make it my life’s mission to help people in such condition. I have empathy for people in such situations because I’ve been in their shoes once before and have shared their pains too.

      It has always been my hearts desire to help put smile on the faces of the less Privileged. My passion coupled with my empathy for less fortunate families, has driven my confidence to give birth to the Yaa Nhyira Foundation with the mission to help. I’ve realized that to be content and stay happy in today’s society, one must act and show love to humanity and I believe helping the needy in the form of alms and charity is an avenue to demonstrate love.

     I believe giving should be practiced regardless the situation you are in.  I decided to run down this journey based on love and charity- to help the needy in society and also contribute to making my country, Ghana and the world at large a better place to live. I urge everyone to join me put smiles on the face of the less fortunate families in the World.


The intention is to give hope to the hopeless in our communities by visiting hospitals, prisons and orphanage homes. The foundation also seeks to restore hope to the less privileged in the society through the power of God, thus letting them know God through preaching and understanding the principles of the word of God. The Foundation seeks to  exclusively work on humanitarian grounds and the benefits of the foundation shall be open to all targeted individuals irrespective of their Beliefs or Communities. Creating awareness among the less privileged (Foster parenting, Orphans, Widows, Widowers, Rural Health Care and Financial Assistance) purely on Charitable Basis within the available resources of the foundation is the rationale for developing the young Foundation.
