Project was successful completed. The orphan food energy is continue to be supported. We have a cordinator that check on the Orphaned to ensure they are still have enough food and live in hygienic conditions.

Long-term Needs

The Orphanage is becoming  self-sustaining with food supplies, that means  building a local farm around the community that we can grow local staple food crops such as
rice, maize, soybean and poultry, banana and plantain, cassava, cowpea, maize, soybean, yam and ensure economic security and self-sufficiency over the long-term for the orphanage  and support other poor families in the Jirapa Municipality community. Of course, reaching  that world will take hard work. It will take your support. Thank you for the support

Project Summary

The St. Joseph Orphanage is in Jirapa Municipality in the Upper West Region of Ghana. The orphanage currently has a total of seventeen non-sponsored children, six girls and eleven boys ranging in age from three years to seven years. The orphanage survives on philanthropic support from civil society groups, individuals, and religious congregations.

Unfortunately, support is not consistent, and as a result, providing the basic food needs of these children can be particularly challenging at times, increasing the hardship and suffering of the babies and young children. The orphanage is currently facing difficult challenges to provide food to the orphaned children. The Orphanage needs food for the children to live an active, productive, and healthy life.

Project Objective

The goal of this project was to raise funds to provide sufficient food for the children and orphans that could last for more than 6 months so the children can learn and grow, improve their health, productivity, developmental abilities, and reduce hardships, while we find permanent food solution to the Orphanage. The support will further help the caretakers to focus on the other matters relating to taking care of these children.

Ongoing Support

Bread of Life international continues to support St. Joseph Orphanage for the food energy needs. The Program director of SOS Children Village, Ghana, Madam Benedicta Pealore working on behalf of Bread of Life International performs routine quarterly check-in with the St. Joseph Orphanage to ensure the children are receiving 3 meals every day and to ensure the children are learning, growing and improving on their health, productivity and developmental abilities. Food security means the children are getting the nutrition they need to succeed at school and in their lives.

Long-term Needs

We want to see the Orphanage become self-sustaining with their food energy, that means building a local farm around the community that we can grow local staple food crops such as rice, maize, soybean and poultry, banana and plantain, cassava, cowpea, maize, soybean, yam and ensure economic security and self-sufficiency over the long-term for the orphanage and support other poor families in the Jirapa Municipality community. Of course, reaching that world will take hard work. It will take your support. It will take resources. It will take funding. It will take perseverance and commitment.

Phase 2: Bathrooms and Washrooms Renovation

The original goal of Bread of Life Int. role was to support the feeding program for the orphanage, however, we also found that the orphanage needed some repairs, maintenance of broken water closets, handwashing basins, bathrooms, shower rooms, and washrooms. This was important to keep the children safe and to live in hygiene environment and prevent them from contacting diseases, bacteria, and germs.

With additional support from donors, Bread of Life Int collaborated with SOS Children’s Village Ghana and replaced nine (9) water closets, five (5) ceramic hand washing basins and five (5) telephone showers. In addition, one (1) bag of cement, a bucket of oil paint and some PVC pipes were provided to complete the maintenance of the bathroom and shower rooms.

Sister Lydia, the sister in charge of the orphanage, expressed her sincere gratitude to donors of Bread of Life Int and SOS Children’s Villages Ghana for supervising the installation, replacement of new bathrooms, and shower rooms for the children in support for the wellbeing of the children.

What is remain of the project is to get some funding to paint the rooms for the children and the house to help with their environment and encourage feelings of empathy and nurturing. 

Bread of Life International will like to thank all the donors for supporting our mission. We also extend our sincere gratitude to Alex Kekula, National Director and Madam Benedicta Pealore, Program Director of SOS Children Village, Ghana for supervising the project to completion
