International Needs Ghana
International Needs Ghana (INGH) is a Christian development organization committed to seeing transformed lives and changed communities through partnerships guided by God’s love and a commitment to holistic development. We seek to achieve this through our integrated thematic approach in promoting community development, with a focus on:
- Child Rights: Raising awareness on the rights of the child as well as building the capacity of families and communities to protect children from violence and abuse as enshrined in our laws.
- Education: Ensuring that children in our target communities have access to quality education through the provision of school infrastructure and other teaching and learning materials
- Health: The health program contributes to the strategic objective of facilitating improvements in the health status of the deprived, with a focus on women and children.
- Gender & Empowerment: Empowering women economically and psycho-socially through the provision of vocational skills training, counseling and rehabilitation of victims of human rights abuse.
- Christian Witness: The program’s objective is to evangelize and nurture the holistic development and maturity of participants in partner institutions and communities of operation.
