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.
Improving HIV/AIDS Education and Health in Ghana
Since 2009, CCFC has been working in Ghana with an AIDS education initiative called Creating Awareness and Changing Behaviours Towards Reducing HIV/AIDS Impact. This project is being implemented in five districts in Ghana’s Northern Region. The activities supported by the project include: peer education in institutions such as schools and learning centres; distributing HIV/AIDS educational materials; and coordinating stigma reduction activities through drama, videos, and songs. The project will reach about 31,000 people.
“As a child with a disability that makes it difficult to walk, I find it interesting for somebody I do not know to care and be willing to improve my life. This support is an inspiration to me to work hard in spite of my present circumstances. I hope to progress to the next stage of my education and to become an important personality. I am grateful to my sponsor and to CCFC.”
LEAP - Early Childhood Development Projects in Ghana and Burkina Faso
ChildFund Korea provided funding to support CCFC in implementing Early Childhood Development (ECD) projects in Ghana and Burkina Faso. Through this, we have been able to build an early childhood education facility in poor and remote communities where children have no access to ECD services.
