It is not surprising that 2022 was very eventful, exacting, exciting and full of testimonies of God's Goodness and Mercy. World Vision Ghana had the singular honour, as the first National Office in the West Africa Region, to host the Triennial Council Conference bringing together all chairs of the Board of Directors, Advisory Council Chairs, Senior WVI Executives, National Directors and senior staff of World Vision entities in the world.
Earlier in the year, World Vision Ghana organised a donor engagement forum dubbed 'Bridging the Learning Gap at the Basic Level with Sustainable WASH Interventions for Supportive Learning Environment'. The event leveraged the momentum of the UNESCO Sustainable Development for Education Award received by World Vision Ghana to engage prospective donors, partners and government agencies, to position the organisation not only as a key player in education but also as a thought leader through its “Unlock Literacy Project”.
In the middle of the year, WVG for the first time successfully launched and shared its 2021 to 2025 Country Strategy with its stakeholders and partners. The Strategy, named “Accelerating our Commitment to the Most Vulnerable Children,” has the goal of ensuring that “By 2025, World Vision Ghana would have reached 3.3 million vulnerable children through empowered and resilient communities with a special focus on most vulnerable children.”
This report showcases a summary of the concerted efforts of staff, partners, stakeholders and donors during the year under review whose key achievements are captured below;
- We have made clean water available to over 85,000 community members including children during this year. We have also provided improved household sanitation facilities to more than 56,492 people including children.
- We reached 45,000 children and their families with messages on nutrition, basic hygiene and sanitation practices thus, making sure there is increased access to health care and protection from infection and diseases for the most vulnerable children and their families.
- WVG supported the training of more than 82 District Teacher Support Teams (DTSTs) of the Ghana Education Service in 8 Area Programmes (APs) to increase the knowledge of lower primary teachers in literacy instructional methodologies.
- Some 290 new Savings for Transformation (S4T) groups were formed and trained with a total membership of 15,394, (10,776 women and 4,618 men).
- Additionally, six (6) adolescent S4T groups were also formed and trained on the S4T model. This
- enabled group members to start or expand their businesses and are positively contributing to the well-being of over 34,455 children.
