The joy of child sponsorship for Gertrude and her community

Ghana

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.
