Help Us Provide Shelter for Orphans in Dormaa Area



This project will provide a 50 capacity orphanage building that will provide shelter for orphans in the Dormaa Ahenkro area of Ghana, West Africa. Some children are rendered orphans because their parents die of HIV Aids disease. The facility will also serve as a home for disabled, deformed, and needy children in the Dormaa Area who are often left uneducated. The facility will provide health care for the children. The construction of the building is complete pending roofing and decoration.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The town of Dormaa Ahenkro has a population of over 20,000 people. There have been multiple accounts of people dying in this area of the HIV Aids disease. In the process, a number of children have been left orphans in this locality. Unfortunately, there is no facility that provides shelter for orphans in this area. There is also the problem of children who are born sometimes deformed or diseased. These kids are sometimes abandoned and left uneducated.

How will this project solve this problem?

The purpose of the project is to provide a 50 capacity orphanage building that will house these disadvantaged kids. The facility will provide shelter, clothing, food, education and health care needs of the children in the facility.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long-term impact will be that the children will be educated and trained to grow to become responsible and useful adults who can give back to the community. This will eliminate poverty and give hope to children that otherwise will be at the mercy of other people in the society.
