Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Reading Camp

Local area volunteers travel to Ghana to provide training for teachers and books for children in an effort to raise the reading level of children in small villages of Ghana.

Population(s) Served

The program will connect a 2nd grade classroom in Sarasota with a 2nd grade classroom in Ghana. The children in Ghana will write notes to Sarasota children and send them a book they would read. The children in Sarasota will write back and send a book to the Ghanaian children. An arrangement will be made for an online video chat between the students and teachers. The purpose is to promote grade level reading and cultural understanding. The children in Ghana do not know our culture and our children might be surprised by their culture.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to raise the literacy rate and provide children with the ability to read at grade level. Our goal for mothers is to provide education on their health and the health of their children.

Our strategy is to go village by village: providing reading camps with teacher education, providing health education workshops and filters for clean water.

We have trained Ghanaian Teachers who can train more Ghanaian Teachers. We have a 3 year Reading Camp plan. All of the programs have been created. Each new village is given a volunteer team for 3 consecutive years. The team trains and supports a Reading Camp Ghanaian Staff. At the end of 3 years the village will run their own camp with support from Ghanaian Mothers' Hope. We currently have three villages in the system. We have partnered with Water With Blessings to provide water filters to village with clean water issues. We also partner with many nurses to provide health education workshops.

In the past 12 years Ghanaian Mothers' Hope has built 3 preschool, a primary school, a small hospital and a nurses residence. We have trained over 100 Ghanaian Teachers, more than 3,000 women have received health care information, given out more that 4,000 books, taught 800 children how to read, and more than 100 volunteers from many parts of the world have spent time volunteering in Ghana.
