Empowered and resilient communities; key to development
Kwasi Addae, a community located in the Afram Plains North District is an example of an empowered and resilient community steering its development. Through education and capacity building by World Vision in Ghana, the community has come to understand the need to champion initiatives to achieve development. As a result, the community members have instituted the Community Care Coalition Group led by the Chief of Kwasi Addae community.
Victory Kids’ Club; Heart of Odomase Community
The kids’ Club is an initiative by World Vision to bolster the education and development of children in Area Programmes (APs). Through the club, children share ideas on issues facing them, and their communities and suggest ways to address them.
The Victory Kids’ Club in Odomase Community is one of the most outstanding Clubs in Afram Plains AP. This Kids’ Club usually meet to exchange ideas, communicate and take the floor to express themselves which has strengthened and improved their level of self-confidence.
The joy of child sponsorship for Gertrude and her community
Fifteen-year-old Gertrude describes how excited she was when she first received a gift from PM International.
Through sponsorship, PM International funded World Vision to construct water systems in Gertrude's community to ensure that there is availability of safe drinking water for consumption and washing of hands.
Limited access to proper sanitation, insufficient and/or irregular supplies of food put many children in Ghana at risk, physically, every day. At the same time, low literacy levels coupled with high rates of child marriage, child labour and female genital mutilation make it difficult for many children to live life to their fullest, achieve their dreams and prepare for their future.
Our teams of dedicated development professionals have been working in Ghana since 1979 to build a better world for children, their families and their communities. We partner with parents, like-minded organizations, faith leaders and the government to address the underlying causes of poverty and injustice in order to build a better world for all children in Ghana.
