Thrive Africa has partnered with local charity Orphan Welfare Agenda (OWA) whom support 140+ caregivers that provide home based care to over 270 children that have been orphaned in the Upper East region of Ghana.
Many caregivers live in inadequate housing often having only one or two rooms that are used for their and the children’s bedrooms & for cooking, our project aims to expand and improve homes to provide a more suitable living environment.
Several caregivers whom were once sharing one room with the children they care for have now benefited from having separate living, sleeping and cooking areas through the building of additional rooms to their properties.
Volunteers in partnership with local builders help in the building of the structures to roof level using traditional building methods and materials. Local builders then completed the roofing, interior and flooring.
