Without added support, our children and the community are vulnerable to dangerous conditions to include malaria, sexual abuse, heavy domestic work. GXVO is volunteers research and care at the wildlife and environmental centers has been able to save alot of animals and plants. Currently, we are helping 100 children escape this lifestyle by lending a helping hand through education and care. Have been able to reduce maternal mortality through education and health promotion in some communities. Here in Ghana, we offer a safe, comfortable and a welcoming volunteer facility and an overall positive experience. We offer opportunities to travel around Ghana on off days to experience the culture, our friendly people, and the magnificence of our country. Recent volunteer, marta cueler Gomez , said "my eight weeks spent with Theresah and the childcare home changed my life. My heart with always be with this special children and I plan to return." We believe that it is up to the next generation to break the cycle and unify a continent. Our curriculum and activities inspire a sense of purpose in the hearts of each child by teaching that just one person can make a difference and the health of the people is our concern.
