The St. Joseph Orphanage is located in Jirapa Municipality in the Upper West Region of Ghana. The orphanage currently has a total of 17 non-sponsored children, 6 girls and 11 boys ranging in age from three years to seven years. The orphanage survives on philanthropic support from civil society groups, individuals, and religious congregations. The Orphanage needs funds in order to consistently provide food for the children to live an active, productive and healthy life.
The orphanage survives on philanthropic support from civil society groups, individuals, and religious congregations. Unfortunately, support is not consistent, and as a result, providing food and basic needs of these children can be very challenging at times, increasing the hardship and suffering of the babies and young children.
The goal of this project is to raise funds to provide sufficient food for the children and orphans that will last for at least two years so that children can learn and grow, improve their health, productivity, developmental abilities, and reduce hardships. This will also help the caretakers to focus on the other matters relating to taking care of these children.
To provide the Orphanage with consistent access to enough food so that every child in a household will live an active, healthy and productive life.
