Updates on Project

The Ark Foundation, Ghana a non-profit Christian Mission organization that focuses on the protection of abused women and children. As part of our services, we run a Crisis Centre in Haatso, Accra and a transit Shelter, and a long-term Shelter for abused women and children.

Through our services, survivors find a safe space and receive free counseling, medical support as well as legal aid. Also, to help rebuild their lives after treatment and resolution of legal matters, The Ark provides survivors with small business grants, skills training, and resettlement support so they can be financially independent.

Examples of cases we have handled include that of 24 years old, whose older brother, the breadwinner of her whole family, had resorted to sexually abusing her from age 14. Distraught and suicidal, she was brought to The Ark for shelter. She is now a successful dressmaker, married, and has two children. Also recently during the COVID lockdown, a woman had to be rescued by The Ark because the father of her 3-year-old child had thrown her out of her home after assaulting her. She received counseling, business support, and other services and has been resettled.

The Ark Shelter is in dire need of a vehicle to facilitate the safe movement of clients to and from the shelter when the need arises without jeopardizing their security. The vehicle will convey them to the hospital, police, and courts and for emergency purposes such as rescuing survivors or medical emergencies. The Domestic Violence Regulations, 2016 (LI2237) which standardizes the operation of shelters also states that a shelter is required to have an operational vehicle.
