Poverty is endemic in Ghana and has devastating effects on children and families. There are 1.2 million children in Ghana living in extreme poverty, often suffering from malnutrition, and not meeting child development milestones (28% of the country). Nearly 623,500 children of primary school age are not enrolled in school, in addition to one in four kindergarten-age children.
Join CCS to volunteer in Ghana to fight for girls education and combat rural poverty. Together as a movement, we can help break the cycle of poverty by systematically implementing programs that work directly with young children to help them meet developmental goals, while supporting nutrition projects, providing them with health care services that keep them in school, and support their families to create a loving home environment.
CCS in Ghana has been working for the last 20 years as a leader in early childhood education with the support of our international volunteer base.
