Sovereign Global Mission
Sovereign Global Mission (SGM) is a Ghanaian Non-Governmental Organization that was founded in 1992 to assist street children in Accra. We were incorporated in 1998 for social service at the Registrar General’s Department and are recognized by the Department of Social Welfare, the Ghana Association of Private Voluntary Organization in Development, Ghana Education Service, the Ghana Network on HIV/AIDS, and the National AIDS Control Programme. Our work as a social service organization focused on children and youth development is carried out in four program areas: 1. Our Kantomanta Street Children’s Program provides children in Kantomanta with access to primary education through financial sponsorship. Also in Kantomanta, our Sunday Feeding Program at the Accra Train Station provides educational programming and activities for children and youth, as well as a nutritious meal to every child who attends. 2. SGM’s Youth Empowerment Project provides financial sponsorship for young people living in Kantomanta to attend secondary/vocational schools or to complete three-year trade apprenticeships. 3. Our HIV/AIDS Advocacy Programs have educated youth in communities all across Ghana in reproductive health. Through seminars, we train youth to advocate against the spread of HIV/AIDS in their communities, by educating their peers on reproductive health. 4. The Adoteiman Child Development Center is a primary school in the rural community of Adoteiman operated by Sovereign Global Mission. When it opens in September 2009, it will serve Adoteiman as the sole primary school. In the future, we hope to sponsor children from Kantomanta to attend the Adoteiman CDC as term-by-term boarding students.
