To reduce violence in Ghana, young adults, teachers and pastors are trained to solve conflicts without violence. The Peacemakers are on a mission of peace!

Ghana: Interfaith Dialogue

The various religions in Ghana mostly live peacefully side by side. To ensure that everything stays this way, private and governmental institutions support the dialogue between the religions continuously. The Presbyterian Church is also actively engaged at local level.

Ghana: Securing the Livelihood of Mothers with Disabled Children

Caring for a sick child means more than just investing a lot of time. It also involves treatment costs which often bring families to the limits of their endurance. How can we help them? The Presbyterian Church of Ghana has a solution.

Ghana: Women Rearing Small Animals

Women in Ghana were given equal rights by law in 1992. However, they are still at a disadvantage compared with men when it comes to education and the labour market. An animal rearing project developed by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana now strengthens the role of women.

Ghana: Eye Operations for the Poor

Many people in rural areas become affected by cataracts and go blind because they have no money for an operation or they simply know nothing about the possible therapeutic treatments. The Presbyterian Church of Ghana visits those affected and restores their sight.
