Creating opportunities for children and adults living in rural Ghana

We work to reduce poverty in Lawra, rural Ghana, where the majority rely on subsistence farming and food is scarce for months at a time.

We’re changing lives

Children supported to access an education

1,887 children across seven schools fed free school meals, provided with learning materials and support since 2013.

Helped 170+ disabled children

170 marginalised disabled children and their families reached to overcome isolation across three support groups.

Provided over 100 business grants

102 small businesses supported to kick start sustainable enterprises since 2012, including 11 dry season farms, and 9 female apprentices.

How we work

We’re implementing a strategy of integrated programmes to tackle the cycle of poverty, which reach a broad cross-section of the community in defined rural areas. We call this strategy our ‘Hub Model.’

Where does your donation go?

We are financially transparent and carefully monitor and evaluate our work to ensure that the money you donate is used in the best way possible.

82p goes directly towards project costs in Ghana

12p is spent on fundraising

6p is spent on adminstration costs

What we’ve been up to

Special Needs Awareness Programme

Hunger and isolation during Covid has been a major problem for our SNAP families, but we are now so pleased to be helping them to recover by restarting our monthly workshops for all three groups, and a twice weekly Play Scheme at our reopened Inclusion Centre.

Small Business Development Programme 

Following the difficult times brought by Covid, our innovative Integrated Training Plan for small businesses is back up and running, including the incredibly powerful mentoring process, and is more important than ever. Six of our fantastic VocATE apprentices will also be starting their own businesses early this year!

Access to Education Programme

It is fantastic to see many of the children of Lawra now back in school after long closures – we continue our advocacy work to help every child back to the classroom. We are also supporting eight girls from Biro JHS to go to Senior High School, the first ever girls from this school to attend SHS – an incredibly exciting step!

Today we distributed educational materials in our Bagri Hub. We know that this will encourage children stay in school longer, and help them avoid risky work in the holidays. We're not sure who's more delighted, Sylvester or Moses! 💚 ... See MoreSee Less
