We're creating opportunities for children and adults living in rural Ghana

Standing together through the coronavirus crisis

Defending livelihoods and building sustainable futures

Our Summer Appeal

We are full of gratitude to every person who believes in the work that we do. In these most difficult fundraising times, we need to ask for your help – if possible, please consider making a small donation to our Summer Appeal . We are so determined to continue and grow our amazing work.

 

 

Transforming communities through empowerment

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.

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!

Meet the team

Looking after our fantastic staff, particularly during this difficult period, remains our priority. We’ve ensured all staff have hygiene packs to make sure that they are as safe as possible whilst at work, and have regular full team meetings to check in.

How we work

We employ these fantastic 21 rural women to cook nutritious meals at our schools. They are empowered, respected and paid well.
Today, they came together from all corners of Lawra for training and peer support- it was such a pleasure to see them all!
