Mission

Ghana Make A Difference's (GMAD's) mission is to protect vulnerable children and to preserve families through self-reliance initiatives in Ghana, Africa. We provide children who have been abandoned or rescued from child trafficking or who have special needs with food, shelter, healthcare, education and a loving environment while we work to reunite them with their families, or to place them in new permanent families. We provide preparatory training and follow-up support to ensure the long-term success of child placements and family preservation.
