Farm of Hope - creating a home for street children

As part of the “Farm of Hope” aid project, the famine and homelessness among street children in Ghana should be put to an end with every helping hand.

Around 50% of the population in Ghana live with a per capita income of less than 300 euros a year. 20% of children suffer from malnutrition. The education rate in primary schools is only 60%. In the capital Accra alone 90,000 children live homeless in the streets of the capital.
Regardless of political progress, the democratically governed Ghana is still one of the poorest developing countries in the world.

Many qualified volunteers are already supporting Mr. Kwasi Heiser with their practical work in this project. These include people from the healing and auxiliary professions, educators, housekeepers, artists and also a farmer. Others contributed financially to the fact that the property could be acquired.
There is always the opportunity to provide practical help on site as a volunteer in setting up the farm, to collect material donations or to support us financially.

The intention in the agricultural sector is to set ecologically sensible structures to enable self-sufficiency and to not exploit nature. The pedagogical concept for the farm consists in first of all alleviating the distress of children and strengthening them in their viability so that they can recover physically and mentally and develop healthily.
In our education and training program, it is very important to us to filter out the resources and potential of children and to promote them in their very personal intellectual or manual skills. Establishing a well-organized and, within the framework of the circumstances, goal-oriented, efficient work behavior is just as important to us as creating an environmental awareness that is close to nature. In terms of social behavior, we attach great importance to taking cultural roots into account and acting independently of religion.
