Total Child Care Initiative (TCCI) was established in December 2005 in Ogun State, Nigeria. Its founder, Ms. Hawa P. Quaye, founded TCCI while a refugee at the Oru Refugee Camp in Ogun State, Nigeria, enabling children for a better future through education and agriculture initiatives. Ms. Quaye was active with the Liberian Government hospital in Tubman, Bomi County, serving as a Registered Nurse and Midwife, there she met Ms. Rebecca Gahanga, who was on a mission trip from Hotspring, North Carolina, and became an active partner of the TCCI. Ms. Quaye later returned to Liberia in 2006 and continued the mission of TCCI by establishing a TCCI school in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, the Western region of Liberia. TCCI has also launched its program in Lower Virginia, Liberia, impacting underserved children's lives.
Total Child Care Initiatives is now a registered 501 ( C ) 3 nonprofit in the United States supporting development in agriculture and education in Liberian communities to better-underserved children.
