Ghana Exchange! – General info
Our non-profit organization, Ghana exchange volunteers organization, is a registered grassroots organization that provides health and educational opportunities for less privileged children and communities located in Senya Beraku in Ghana.
We have been operative since 2009 and have made a tremendous impact on our Healthcare project, Educational project and Child Labor and Trafficking project.

Without added support, our children and the community are vulnerable to dangerous conditions including:
- sexual abuse,
- heavy domestic work,
- child labour conditions,
- exposure to HIV/AIDS, and teenage pregnancy.
Currently, we are helping 100 children escape this lifestyle by lending a helping hand through education and care.
