Where We Work
Featured Partner Project
Food for Assets Project
Through CCFC, people in Ghana who earn less than $1 per day are receiving 300,000 seedlings to plant, along with technical support. They are learning about new and improved forestation technologies such as pegging, planting, and fire ride creation. This project is restoring more than 500 acres of degraded forest in Ghana. It is allowing participating communities to own woodlots so they can harvest wood in a sustainable manner, meeting their needs and earning an income.
“I think I am not ready yet. Many times the man is far older – enough to be my father. I want to complete my education and have a say in who I want to marry.”
Our Work, in Action
Dr. J. Calvitt Clarke and Dr. Verent Mills start work with Chinese war orphans.
Dr. Clarke creates China's Children Fund (CCF).
CCF expands its work from Asia into the Middle East after WWII. Renames itself "Christian Children's Fund".
CCF has global reach, and Canadian support leads to the creation of Christian Children's Fund of Canada.
We have been working with communities in Ghana since 1996. We work in partnership with local organizations to help improve life for children, their families and their communities in five key areas: health and nutrition; education; water, sanitation and hygiene; sustainable economic growth; and strengthening community organizations.
