    Description

    We are open all years:

    ABOUT US:
    We are registered and recognised as non profit in Ghana with the major aim of promoting sustainable Education and healthcare,water and sanitation.

    Since 2015 we are able to transform about 15 communities with good schools, health promotion and championing sanitation problems in rural Ghana.

    Our team is made up of strong and energetic young people of different professionals including health workers, teachers,nurses,doctors among others. These group of people contributed towards the development of our vision.
    Our local and international partners also support our projects in special way making our operation easier and in good shape.
    We welcome on board whoever is interested to work in our health programs,our schools and sustainable livelihood projects and sanitation projects.

    Disability Children Aid program:
    We are currently creating a department for physically challenged children in our schools to aid the inclusion and participation of disabled children in our district.
    There are several disabled of different kind of children in our society but due to lack of resources, attention is not given to these children.
    Lives becomes very difficult therefore our organization is taking such responsibility to address the needs through by building new structure, disability Aid equipment to enable them take challenges in this world.
    Volunteers I'm expert of these fields can participate.

    Major project:
    1. School of less privileged and Disabled children:
    We run a basic school (kindergarten and primary) for over 200 children with few disabled children in the school.
    The children study all major subjects : including mathematics,English,French,Science ,computer science and creative arts.
    In addition,we organise many entrepreneurial activities and problem solving courses like recycling of plastic,permaculture and basic farming skills to give the children sustainable future.
    There are local teachers in the school but not much to all subjects because we have limited funding to pay their salaries,therefore volunteers have much jobs to do with us.

    2. We run a permaculture centre and camps that train rural people in sustainable agriculture and soil management.
    It is also a centre for environmental development and preservation.
    Major activities like farm chores, tree planting and recycling is done here.

    3. We promote health through mobile clinic and outreach program.
    Our volunteer nurses contribute much to this program by offering support to local health team to address basic challenges in areas with no health facilities.

    4. Sanitation is a major problem in our communities therefore we organise many activities and training on recycling and proper management of waste to local people.

    5. We address women reproductive health and empowerment issues.
    We educate women on birth issues and child care while we empower them by giving them entrepreneurial skills.

    5. Creative arts and dance theatre
    In 2021 February we started a beautiful dance theatre in our school to train and empower young people and children with skills and creativity.The centre will give dance lessons,train and build young people with drumming and musical skills,drama, Cultural development and public exposure.
    Those with movements skills and dance skills can train and teach here.
