Voice Ghana in Ho, Ghana

People with disabilities living in rural areas of Ghana have little or no access to education, the labour market, health care, etc. They are also excluded from society to a greater or lesser extent depending on their disability. Moreover, depending on their impairment, they are more or less excluded from society. Often there is simply a lack of information about the causes of disability and education about human rights.

The self-advocacy organisation of people with disabilities Voice Ghana campaigns for the rights of people with disabilities in Ghana. They support and accompany over 60 self-help groups in the Volta Region (in the south-east of Ghana). Voice Ghana does networking work with other organisations, and does education and outreach work on issues such as inclusion, gender justice, HIV/AIDS.

bezev has been supporting Voice Ghana since 2014, especially within the framework of the volunteer service programme "weltwärts".
Voice Ghana is financed by donations, project funds and membership fees. In the past, we have supported Voice Ghana in building a barrier-free office building.

Currently, we are supporting Voice Ghana to obtain essential food and hygiene items during the Corona crisis. You would like to supply these to people with impairments and educate them about preventive measures.
