Home History About Us

Our C4C: Kaleidoscope, inc Team is a remarkable one. If you ever have the opportunity, ask members their stories. As you hear their stories you will understand the making of this Team. A team that has given 25 years of their time, energy and personal income to drive this Humanitarian organization. An organization that for 25 years focuses on children and at-risk youth.  It is incorporated in Ghana, West Africa.

The elders of C4C Kaleidoscope have devoted their lives' work to mentoring others in the service of Peace Security. Three of those they mentored from birth are on the Operations Staff .

The founder of C4C, at age 10, began The Perfect Peace Club, with then co founding members (of the Perfect Peace club)  Sybil Williams-Baffoe and Flossie E. Apaloo.  The three young girls, as community advocates, sought community collaboration in their quest to improve the community health in Ghana, West Africa.  In the early 1970's the concept of Peace  as related to community health was not as widespread in urban nor rural  dialogue as it is today in the 21st century. These three young girls were trailblazers at the young age of eleven. 

From the hearts and minds of the three young girls came the design of The Perfect Peace Club -  C4C: Kaleidoscope has evolved to what it is today. It has evolved to serve the needs of children and at-risk youth. Today's community holds the diverse needs of our: Traditionalists, Baby boomers, X-Geners, Millieniuims and Younger.

The spirit of C4C was infused in 1994 through a beautiful and giving woman (M.S.) who rescued a young child from slavery.  This child was a victim of human trafficking.  Through a combination of the child's strength, and the woman's love, C4C has become what it is today.  The eyes in the C4C banner are reminiscent of that story. Community health continues to be paramount. 

What makes up C4C: Kaleidoscope Inc., is her team of superb individuals.  C4C has spanned over two decades and is still staying the course. C4C is infused with the hope of those who came before. C4C is built on faith and hope. Our retired Military have spent decades serving not only their community but also their Nation.  Professor Patrick Twumasi (may he rest in Peace) and Dr. Patrick Twumasi, Jr. (may he rest in Peace) devoted their lives to their very last breath to both the human journey and medical sciences. They both communicated eagerly ( to all who would listen) on the need for peace within the human experience.  Dr. Wutoh and Dr. Victor Kumoji (may they rest in Peace)  both enjoyed supporting C4C with their devotion to Community Health.  Dr. Kafui B. Glover always spoke words of Community Health.  She knew this journey would continue as The Baton would always be passed.  Dr. Wutoh, as C4C's founding agriculturalist, mentored C4C's staff to appreciate the nuances of agricultural sustainability.  Ret. Col. Richard Lantry, PhD, has been a formidable force with the mission and focus of C4C for over a decade.  Much appreciation is given to him for all his service to the team and the community.

Today the C4C team is stronger than ever and includes: Susan A. M. Glover, Michel Bowman Amuah, Roslyn Chester, Dorothy Gordon, all who have years of diverse expertise that is invaluable. Chrystal Magdaleno has the wisdom, dedication, and heart that any organization seeks.   It is the hope of C4C that with this quality of expertise, the journey in community training and service will be more effectuated.

C4C  is guided by the ideals of peace and harmony as basic human needs and rights.  Numerous situations continue to erupt around the world, which threaten these human needs and rights for millions of individuals.  It is the distinct belief of C4C that we can collaborate to build awareness within our diverse communities for our children that will grant them a future with promise.  C4C staff and board members have served as  educators, doctors and high level arbitrators and mediators in a variety of situations and at many different levels.  These members have mediated between nation states and presidents.  C4C board members have served as community mental health counselors and educators. They have served as medical professionals. They have served as mediators in legal negotiations, and have also been involved in mediating within gang deliberations.  They have also served as mediators for peoples experiencing trauma from mass disaster.  Members of our unique, strong team of diverse professionals have worked together for more than three decades.

Francis of Assisi Wrote:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

The 1912 French version:

Seigneur, faites de moi un instrument de votre paix.
Là où il y a de la haine, que je mette l'amour.
Là où il y a l'offense, que je mette le pardon.
Là où il y a la discorde, que je mette l'union.
Là où il y a l'erreur, que je mette la vérité.
Là où il y a le doute, que je mette la foi.
Là où il y a le désespoir, que je mette l'espérance.
Là où il y a les ténèbres, que je mette votre lumière.
Là où il y a la tristesse, que je mette la joie.
Ô Maître, que je ne cherche pas tant à être consolé qu'à consoler,
à être compris qu'à comprendre,
à être aimé qu'à aimer,
car c'est en donnant qu'on reçoit,
c'est en s'oubliant qu'on trouve, c'est en pardonnant qu'on est pardonné,
c'est en mourant qu'on ressuscite à l'éternelle vie.


We are reminded of these words of depth and enlightment and way of Being as we travel in Non Violence.
