OUR VISION, MISSIONS, OBJECTIVE & CORE BELIEFS
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 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 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.
