Who we are GhanABC?

We are a Catalan Association located in Barcelona at Carrer de l’Encarnació, 43, 1r 1a

Registered at the Registry of Associations of the Generalitat de Catalunya under numberG67606574.

Our aim is to make people know the reality of vulnerable children and orphans in Ghana, specifically in the Koforidua area, and to help them live with their families and have a good education without the need to leave their country.

We also believe that no child should live in an institution.

WHAT DO WE DO IN CATALONIA?

We organize talks and workshops in Catalan schools, neighborhoods, associations and companies
to give visibility to the reality of the children of Ghana and create awareness.

ACTIVITIES AT SCHOOL

Activities carried out by GhanABC at the Anointed school in Koforidua. Our collaborators NEVER give the classes, there are already specialized teachers to do this work, they will limit themselves to help the teacher with additional material and to give workshops or reinforcements in extracurricular hours.
1

Tracking

Thorough monitoring of children at school.

2

Local culture

Recovery of games, traditional tales, legends and songs from their own country.

3

Craft making

The children at school discovered a new way to express themselves through the mud.

4

Theatre

Theatre activities and short performances with Ghanaian works, dance and singing.

5

Library

In the new school building we have reserved a space for a library. It will be set up in such a way that there is room also for relaxation and practising quiet table games.

While we arrange the library, we take them to the Koforidua library.

Gymkhanas and sports games

A les escoles ghaneses els divendres estan dedicats a aquestes activitats i nosaltres hi col·laborem ensenyant-los jocs tradicionals de Catalunya (el mocador, la xarranca, un-dos-tres pica paret, etc.)

Testimonials

Testimonials of people who have received GhanABC support.

Hello, my name is Mercy I am a hairdresser and I live in Koforidua with my family. In 2015 I married Mensah, he is a taxi driver and then I found out that he had a child at an orphanage. Together with what is now the GhanABC Solidarity Association, we have managed to get this child, Mishel, to live with us now and to go to school in... Mishel is a happy child, he has found his father and I am his mother. GhanABC has helped us to improve our quality of life (we have been able to move house, we sleep on mattresses, we have medical assistance and above all we know that our children will be able to choose their future). In 2018 we were able to give a little sister to Mishel, Baby Baubó, whose schooling is also paid for by the association.
