Michael Sam – Founder and CEO
Michael Sam is the Founder and CEO of Bread of Life International. He has an unstoppable passion to see that every African child – especially the poor, the needy, the vulnerable, and the deprived has access to sufficient food and never have to go hungry.
Born and raised in Ghana, Michael obtained scholarship to study at a university in United States. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Decision Information Sciences and MBA from University of Maryland, at College Park.
Michael has used his experience as a Consultant and Agile & Scrum Coach to help organizations both Fortune 500 companies and the U.S. Federal Government Agencies to become more agile and achieve better results by successfully transforming the way they work.
Michael visits his native country frequently. In his visit and traveling around the country – communities, towns, and villages – he first-hand experiences the level of poverty and its impact on the poor infants, children, families, and vulnerable people that are struggling to buy food and feed themselves. Ghana is not an exception to this. There are millions of many infants, orphans, children, and vulnerable people across Africa that still go to bed on an empty stomach each night.
Michael shares the belief that we must first provide safe, nutritious, and sufficient food to poor infants, children, orphans, families, and vulnerable people that are hungry and hurting, while addressing the long-term socio-economic conditions such as improving food security, creating employment, investing in agriculture sector, addressing climate changes and induced shocks, and civil insecurity that also critical for reducing hunger.
Michael’s background, his roots, and strong faith have instilled deep empathy, compassionate, and care to reach out and to feed the poor and needy infants, children, families, and vulnerable people across Africa that are hungry and hurting.
Why Bread of Life? whether we know firsthand what it feels like to be chronically hungry or go to bed on an empty stomach each night and or in need of good, nutritional food to make you feel full and nourished? I think the possibility of that feeling for any person, young or old, strikes a deep chord within each of us.
We don’t want our friends and neighbors, strangers or anyone to go hungry, and as humans, we just don’t want our fellow humans going hungry! However, this is part of daily lives for millions of poor, needy children, and vulnerable people across Africa that are facing extreme hunger and are hurting, and they don’t know where their next meal will come from or when they will eat.
Bread is a basic food, a staple part of essential daily diet in many cultures and countries around the world. It has been one of the most accessible foods for people of all wealth and social status. Having bread means to avoid hunger and to spiritually nourish our body, soul, and spirit. Further, having enough to eat allow us to be more productive, be focus, be able to take care of ourselves, and contribute to our families and community.
Bread of Life International was founded to give hope to poor and needy infants, children, families, widows, seniors, and vulnerable people across Africa that are experiencing hunger and in pain and despair.
