Mission Statement

We are providing a loving home for Ghanaian Orphans, Trafficked and Deserted children where they will be educated to grow with physical health, mental ability, emotional stability, vocational skills, good citizenship and multicultural expertise. Through this education and experience, they can learn to be responsible adults who can both care for their own families and pay forward what they have learned and achieved to help others.

Description

In Ghana, one in every six children aged six to fourteen are involved in child labor. Many Ghanaian
children are engaged in the worst form of child labor. In cocoa and fishing production, hundreds of
children report injuries sustained while using machetes, carrying heavy loads, and diving to remove fish from nets that have been caught on debris. If the injuries are serious, they are tossed out into the street to beg and fend for themselves. They work under harsh conditions for twelve or more hours a day and are not provided with education or sufficient food and rest. Ghana is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa but the future is at risk if the enslavement of children continues. If so many Children are denied of a proper education, they will not be able to move the country forward and may remain poor and unable to provide for themselves and their families to come.
This is why Volta hope is providing a loving home for Ghanaian Orphans, Trafficked and Deserted children. Our Children will be educated to grow with physical health, mental ability, emotional stability, vocational skills, good citizenship and multicultural expertise. Through their education and experiences, they can learn to be responsible adults who can both care for their own families and pay forward what they have learned to help others.
