What We Do – Ghana Without Orphans

OUR VISION, MISSIONS, OBJECTIVE & CORE BELIEFS

OUR VISION: 

To give all orphans and vulnerable children in Ghana, a passport out of the Orphan Nation into the joy of a better Christian life.

OUR MISSION
Our mission is to inform, mobilize and equip the Body of Christ, Government Agencies, NGO’s, Corporate Bodies and Individuals to give all orphans and abandoned children a loving and caring Christian family.

OBJECTIVE:
Objective of this movement is to establish a steady and stable approach to caring for orphans and abandoned children in Ghana. This approach will be based on:

  • Prevention: To prevent the disintegration of families through strategies that strengthen families such as Micro-finance to the Foster Parent Co-operative Credit Union. Scholarships, access to National Health Insurance, food pantry and Community Without Orphans project .
  • Reintegration: Reintegration with the extended family: In cases where children are separated from their immediate family, to find loving relatives who are able to create a caring and stable environment for the child.
  • Fostering: When an adoptive family cannot be found, temporary or long-term care with foster families can still provide a good home for children.
  • Adoption: When the possibility of a family reunion is exhausted, to find the child a loving adoptive family, preferably with a Christian family (Domestic or Inter-country adoption)

These core beliefs underpin the work of the Ghana Without Orphans Movement:

  • All children have inherent value in God’s eyes and an unconditional right to holistic development, to enable them to live up to the potential that God has given them.
  • The very best environment for all children is a loving and caring family – parents, siblings, and extended family members for life … a family to call their own and to come home to forever.
  • God cares in a special way for the fatherless, and He commissions the Church, and thus every Christian, to do everything in their power to help orphaned children.
  • A family for every orphan.

Romans 8: 15, “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
