About Us

Since its inception in 2010, CFWOVA has been committed to empowering rural communities throughout Ghana, impacting over 10 communities. You may be wondering, “I haven’t heard of many ‘problems’ in Ghana.” In many ways this is true; Ghana fortunately avoids many natural problems (hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, etc) and man-made problems (genocide, political turmoil, etc). However, we strongly believe that there are countless socioeconomic problems that plague rural Ghanaian communities—undrinkable water due to a lack of simple sanitation systems, inadequate educational facilities, and orphanages that cannot meet the basic needs of underprivileged orphans.

Founder Mr Mathias Kemeh recognized these widespread problems and saw the need for grassroots, Ghanaian solutions. While many people abroad have been aware of the obstacles faced by underdeveloped nations throughout Africa, Mathias sought to provide international volunteers with an affordable, hands-on opportunity to understand the reality of these issues. For nearly a decade, CFWOVA has been successfully providing international volunteers with the opportunity to experience Ghana and make a sustainable, lasting difference.
