Pan African Organisation for Research and Protection of Violence on Women and Children (PAORP-VWC) is a Non-Governmental Human Rights and Development Organisation registered in Ghana under the Registrar General's Department and Social Welfare as a Charity no G-25,584. Though being a charity, we believe in integrated and participatory approaches in promoting meaningful Change that will provide a safer environment for women and children rather than just being charitable to them by providing their basic daily needs of food, Shelter and clothing.
PAORP-VWC is an Non-Sectarian, Non-Political and Non-Profit-making Organisation out to lobby with policy makers and opinion leaders on behalf of women and children who are the most vulnerable in the society and whose voices are never been taken into consideration when major decisions are to be taken. PAORP-VWC is the voice of the voiceless pushing its ways across African countries. The founding fathers are experts humanitarian professionals drawn across many African countries. With many years of staff experiences in the field of complex humanitarian emergencies across Africa, PAORP-VWC is created to intervene where other organisations may not dare because of the complexity of the crisis. We work using gender sensitive participatory approaches to obtain sustainable solutions to our core values. We have offices in Ghana and Cameroon and will expand to other African Countries soon.
