Orphan and street children missions project

Heshbon’s Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization designed to help orphans, needy, destitute and disable children to eradicate poverty, child labor, social vices and to promote individual, societal and global change.

This project was established to help provide shelter, health care, food, clothing and quality education to over 100 orphans and street children at Senya Beraku and its environs who are Ghanaian children under Heshbon’s Foundation helping them in any other ways they might need in order to start living self-sufficient.

A center was opened for this core since the foundation inception 2014.

This project also meant to call for volunteers to our community to make holistic research findings out problems facing poor children and the environment they are living in other communities and they can be solved.

BACKGROUND OF AREA OF OPERATION

Senya Beraku is a fishing community in the Awutu-Senya West District in the Central Region of Ghana with a population of about 15,000.

The community by virtue of its location has the only dominant economic activity being farming and fishing.

About 70% of the inhabitants are engaged in fishing with the rest relying on white collar jobs available and other income generating activities such as petty trading, masonry, and carpentry.

Over the years, unfavorable conditions of operation in the major economic activities which is fishing and farming have had decreasing effect on the levels of income and this has greatly affected education and standard of living in the community.

A survey undertook in recent past revealed a continuous cases of school drop outs of children and teenage pregnancy among the girl child due to hardship and poverty among the people in the community, region and country been the major factor. This is really having negative impact in the education of children in the community. Due to these factors, families prefer to engage their children in the dominant economic activities than educating. Some parents even prefer giving out their children on a contractual bases to other people in the fishing communities in the Volta region of Ghana such as ‘Yeji’, ‘Yepe’ etc. for child labor in other for them to feed the rest of their families because it’s difficult to even have two (2) square meals a day and even if one meal is afforded the nutritional value is questionable.
