Dormaa Children’s Home is a 50 capacity children’s home facility to provide shelter, basic education and to cater for the needs of orphans, disabled and needy children in the Dormaa area of Ghana. It was established in 2009 by Mr. Kwasi Twumasi, a native of Dormaa Ahenkro in Ghana. The construction of the orphanage facility has progressed incrementally on yearly basis since 2009.

The founding of the orphanage facility was necessitated by the need to care for orphans in the various communities in the Dormaa area. Also, the need to help disabled children in the Dormaa area who are sometimes left uneducated because of the stigma attached to disabilities was a major contributing factor in establishing the orphanage.
It is our belief that, we do not have to be rich to do something positively to impact the life of disadvantaged children. Again we do not have to know someone to do good to them; and though we may not be able to help thousands of children, we certainly can help a few. This is our belief.
The Orphanage has been registered as a non-profit Organization (Dormaa Children’s Home Inc.) both in Ghana and the United States.
The building has been constructed, roofed and painted. All plumbing and electrical works have been completed. A well has been dug to provide water for the facility. Commissioning of the facility is set for the year 2016. It is our expectation that, when operational the facility will be able to provide shelter, free nursery education and medical care to some disadvantaged kids in this community.
