Protecting children and families
Poverty is a big reason why nearly 17% of Ghanaian children don’t live with their family and are forced to live in institutions. It's difficult to raise children when you struggle to meet their basic needs.
Family is essential
Decades of research emphasize that family is essential to a child’s physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being. That’s why our first priority in Ghana is keeping children stable and safe with their family of origin. When that’s not possible, we find local foster families who can provide a loving home.
Your gift helps keep families together.
Help support Bethany's work in Ghana
For families raising children on less than $2 per day, meeting basic needs like nutritious meals, safe shelter, quality health care, and education can seem impossible. With your gift, we can change that—because children need families.
