Hello Ghana believes aiding children in poverty extends beyond just meeting external, monetary needs. We believe in creating long-term, sustainable opportunities to empower and equip a child to live a life beyond their circumstance of poverty.
Hello Ghana focuses its efforts on the 45 children currently living at the Good Shepherd orphanage in Ofaakor, Ghana. Our executive director, Molly Frederick, has long standing relationships with the people of Ofaakor, and has been traveling to Ghana with teams of volunteers at least twice per year since 2009.
On top of helping maintain and staff the orphanage itself, we have implemented a Ghana-centered apprenticeship program to pair teen-aged children with local Ofaakor business owners. Learn more here.
