We have spent time working in and around the Greater Accra region and have seen firsthand the challenges communities face on a daily basis. We’ve seen families without a guaranteed meal, and we’ve seen children dying from preventable diseases because their family couldn’t afford, or didn’t have access to health care. In order to create change that digs deep to the root of poverty, we must examine each sphere of community need closely and craft relevant and effective solutions.
Without access to basic human rights such as shelter, food or education, there are a huge amount of individuals who are stuck in a daily struggle for survival. If these basic needs are met the community focus can shift from mere survival to independence, sustainability and growth. This transition is long overdue and by working side-by-side with community leaders we can develop relevant and attainable goals.
