The joy of child sponsorship for Gertrude and her community
Fifteen-year-old Gertrude describes how excited she was when she first received a gift from PM International.
Through sponsorship, PM International funded World Vision to construct water systems in Gertrude's community to ensure that there is availability of safe drinking water for consumption and washing of hands.
Putting the power to choose in children's hands
Through World Vision's Chosen™ initiative, children have the power to choose their own sponsor.
Our Ghana office is privileged to collaborate with Northview Church in the United States to give over 2,000 children in our Agotime and East Gonja Area Programmes, the opportunity to choose a sponsor.

World Vision partners with journalists association to promote child protection & humanitarian development work
World Vision and the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) have signed a partnership agreement to address child protection and humanitarian development work amongst vulnerable groups –especially children– with a focus on neglect, violence, exploitation and abuse.
Limited access to proper sanitation, insufficient and/or irregular supplies of food put many children in Ghana at risk, physically, every day. At the same time, low literacy levels coupled with high rates of child marriage, child labour and female genital mutilation make it difficult for many children to live life to their fullest, achieve their dreams and prepare for their future.
Our teams of dedicated development professionals have been working in Ghana since 1979 to build a better world for children, their families and their communities. We partner with parents, like-minded organizations, faith leaders and the government to address the underlying causes of poverty and injustice in order to build a better world for all children in Ghana.
