At the very core of our mission, the team at Singola Consulting believes in giving back. We focus on how we can improve society and its economies as a whole, particularly in the area of healthcare. Our social conscience tells us that our success is not determined by our bottom line and the satisfaction of those with whom we work, but the impact we have on people’s lives. Using a combination of our resources, experiences, partners, and clients, we are determined to provide to those most in need. With both our time and money, we do our best to help the wonderful organizations listed below.
Imagine what life would be like with no access to healthcare, no hospital or doctors in your community, nowhere to turn when illness or injury strikes you or a loved one. This is a reality for the inhabitants of rural Ghana where children and adults die of pandemic disease and disabling conditions that are both treatable and preventable.
Building clinics in the rural areas of Ghana and staffing them with full-time, local healthcare providers is the only real solution to the medical care needs of this region. The Yonkofa Project supports the work of Ghanian medical professionals, giving them a safe place to provide care and shipping much needed medical supplies. Yonkofa builds sustainable healthcare and resilient communities, the foundation for independence and economic prosperity.

The Singola team asked ourselves how we could give back to our local community, and we didn’t have to look very far before discovering The Chicago Lighthouse. This 100-year-old organization creates education programs and employment opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired, including operating a call center that employs only the visually impaired. In their own powerful words, they help those with visual impairments to “See What’s Possible!”
They do amazing work, and we are proud to call them neighbors here in Chicago. Please take some time to learn more about their great programming.
We hope you will be as inspired by The Chicago Lighthouse as we are. If you’d like to get involved, please visit them at ChicagoLighthouse.org
According to Healthcare Without Harm, U.S. hospitals generate more than two million tons of medical waste each year. Much of that waste is unused medical supplies and equipment. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization estimates that more than 10 million children under the age of five die in the developing world due to inadequate medical care.
So what can be done?
MedShare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment through the efficient recovery and redistribution of the surplus of medical supplies and equipment to those most in need. We collect surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, distributors and manufacturers, and then redistributes it to qualified healthcare facilities in the developing world. We also outfit medical missions and safety net clinics in both the U.S. and abroad.
