A healthy and prosperous society based on gender equality and equity in every walk of life by improving the lives of the poor through education, economic and social development programs. We share the vision of a world where all forms of disability can be avoided, healed or integrated and in which the rights of people with disabilities are respected and applied.
We are committed to serving MANKIND by providing the basic amenities of life to the helpless and needy people of all communities and also by encouraging Girl child, People with Disabilities and Youth education.
We believe in gender equality and equity in every walk of life regardless of race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, disability, marital status, veteran status, or any other occupationally irrelevant condition.
WHAT WE DO
We bring together literate and non-literate, towns, villages, people in common respect for each other and for manual work to promote and encourage the development of the spirit of voluntarism among the youth and people of all communities by organising workcamps towards physical projects, literacy work, and establishing demonstrational camps and farms, Leadership training, camping activities and International Cultural Exchange Programmes.
We support and help the destitute, the poor, the needy, People With Disabilities (PWDs) and orphans without family support, to be involved in activities leading to the alleviation of poverty of identified communities. We train and help in Skills Development to equip the Youth, Women, PWDs and others for a sustainable future where they will have jobs to become potential leaders to meet the need of their local communities, e.g. Tie and dye batik, bee keeping, snail rearing, general farming, ICT training and Vocational skills development.
We provide a platform for students/volunteers to be involve in group educational activities that focuses on issues related to intercultural communication, development issues in the host community and larger issues related to international development, while learning the Africa way of lifestyle (family, cooking and dressing), drumming and dancing lesson, etc.
We redress the position of women in society, support and educate, sensitize and equip the disadvantage individuals and communities with marketable skills for sustainable life and alternative income generating activities for the unemployed and also give assistance to deprive communities, individuals and institutions, through effective provision of counselling and information.
We provide machinery for bringing Ghanaians into contact with volunteers in other parts of the world to form a coherent body for Workcamps and International Cultural Exchange towards the achievement of national and international peace and understanding.
We help educate children and young people who never go to school, and a far larger number of Illiterate Adults (knowledge, Skills, and wider competency).
We provide a framework wherein people of all social and economic background, race, colour, ethnicity, religion, may come together to use their leisure time to provide Voluntary Service to Poor Communities to do work which they would otherwise be unable to do for themselves by means of workcamps towards physical projects, literacy work, and establishing demonstrational camps and farms, Leadership training, camping activities and International Cultural Exchange Programmes.
