Every village in rural Ghana has land and have allocated that land to their families to farm. With primitive tools the farmers are not able to create a wage that will provide daily meals, clean water, health-care, and an opportunity for a quality education for their children. Current family income is less than $20 per month. ODI is advocating for an increase in wages, health care, and education, helping to fill the gaps that currently exist prohibiting growth and an enjoyable quality of life.
The villagers have the land, Operation Dignity International can be their help for resources, but YOU have the opportunity to be the hero and make significant change. For these villagers, increasing the acres they farm can create an earned wage to provide for their family needs.
HELP BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY FOR THE CHILDREN IN GHANA
The demonstration farm becomes the revenue generating model of successful farming for the villagers. One-by-one we education, model for success, and support while they farm their land.
Children and adults need literacy skills. Including farming practices into the educational philosophy inroduces the opportunity for these farming communities to increase their motivation to learn and apply practical reading, writing, and arithmetic to their life.
Malaria and typhoid are the two most common causes of death in the villages from untreated diarrhea and fever. Access to healthcare helps to provide a thorough and quick response to save lives.
Adding chickens and other protein sources that each village can control increases the nutritious meals and increase the neurocognitive solution to depleted ability to learn.
Families become separated while adult members leave to find work - somewhere. They usually become homeless and especially the women and young girls are mistreated. Providing opportunities for employment means families can become one again.
Community development means that ODI supports the community while they find the answers and work for their solutions. ODI helps fill the missing gaps until those resource gaps disappear and the villagers are on their own! Dignity at it's best!
