Healthy Communities

Access to health facilities and health education is low in rural areas. Reproductive health care education is not universal in Ghana, which is particularly impactful on adolescent females. Poor health and well-being further exacerbate current inequalities and have serious consequences on long-term prosperity.

We have made public health and the promotion of healthy lifestyles central to our work since we began operating. Through our in-country partner, Dream Big Ghana NGO, we have approached this issue holistically. Through our programmes, adolescent girls and boys have access to sexual reproductive healthcare and materials, all families have handwashing stations and appropriate education on hand hygiene, and all school children and young adults have the opportunity to play organised sport. We have invested in a multifunctional community park that acts as community space that all can be proud of.
