Holy’s Home for Children
Fostering community empowerment in rural Ghana
That every community has the power to transform livelihoods
Building big dreams and bright futures.
Holy’s Home for Children believes that every child deserves the right to a safe and supportive home. Furthermore, with the right foundations, every community has the power to create, sustain and effect positive change that resounds further than charity beneficiaries.
Holy’s Home is currently constructing its first financially self-sustaining project for vulnerable children in the Eastern Region of Ghana. On-site facilities that sell safe drinking water, locally known as 'pure water' to villages and towns for miles around ensures regular income, making this a lasting, community-centered project.
Set in the beautiful Kwahu region, the area is steeped in agricultural history and infamous for its annual Easter celebrations, bordering Lake Volta, the largest man-made lake in the world. Despite its natural beauty, recent reports estimate that there are more than 20,000 children working on the lake, often risking their lives to dive down and undo fishing nets caught in the reeds.
Children who are out of school or without parents are at particular risk. Holy's Home gives children in these difficult situations the chance to reach their full potential, away from danger in a safe and nurturing environment.
With its rich, vibrant and welcoming culture, Ghana is often chosen as a popular volunteer destination. Holy’s Home is committed to ensuring foreign intervention is translated in to lasting, sustainable impact in the hands of Ghanaian communities themselves.
