Project Details

Solutions for Life Initiative Ghana (SFLIG) connect passionate people seeking to “give back” to the very people whose lives depends on it where there is mutual benefit

SFLIG Volunteer and Internship program is an initiative developed to improve the lives of children, especially girls from orphanages and broken homes and to provide support to single mothers. Our aim is to improve the lives of people from difficult backgrounds through school enrollment, housing provision, medical care and start-up capital for single mothers. Through these endeavors we hope to alleviate poverty and promote community growth.

We are committed to achieving first six Sustainable Development Goals of the UN:

  1. No poverty
  2. zero hunger
  3. good health and well-being
  4. quality education
  5. gender equality
  6. clean water and sanitation.

We introduce volunteers to our rich hospitality and culture. Ghana cannot be compared to any other country in Africa,
We are dedicated to the concept of volunteering within our organisation. We welcome and celebrate the skills, knowledge and passion of people who are committed to making a change. We are proud to be part of their journey of self-discovery – a journey where, we find, the rewards are tangible and memorable.

SFLIG offers volunteer experiences in many different categories. These include teaching, medical, working with children and creative art centres. Any one of these categories provides the volunteer with countless opportunities to see first-hand the challenges that exist for the less privileged in Ghana and to, more importantly, have a positive impact on the lives of those they meet.

Mission

Our mission is to help connect individuals and groups looking for the opportunity to give back to society to the very people who needs their support where both parties benefit. Volunteers experience new culture and life whiles helping to better the lives of the community. 

Vision

We envisage a voluntary journey where volunteers discover themselves and receives more than they give.

Objective

Social Impact

At SFLIG we aimed at providing education for some of the most vulnerable in our society – particularly girls and young mothers – so that they may become leaders of change for future generations.

Whilst education is ‘free’ in Ghana there are still expenses incurred to provide for the students – uniforms, school lunches, textbooks, supplies, registration fees and transportation. Culturally, when presented with the expenses of educating a child, the decision to choose between a son’s education and a daughter’s, most families will invest in their son. This is a result of further opportunities offered to boys in civil service work compared with the agricultural and informal opportunities available to girls.

SFLIG provides direct assistance in improving the educational outcomes of female adolescents. This is evident in the development of the A,B,Cs for Change group, the training and education given to young mother’s in the EYMI, the informal education given in the CMAC and the direct financial contributions made to selected young girls so that they may successfully complete high school.

These aforementioned methods allow SFLIG to battle illiteracy and the drop-out rates of young women, educate and empower teenagers to make informed decisions about their education and lifestyle choices and to open their eyes to the possibilities that they have as young Ghanaian leaders of tomorrow.

The above mention social issue is the reason why you should volunteer with us if you want to see the impact you are making with your money, time, love and of course the faith you place in us in traveling to an unknown land. We don't also just place you in a project, we work with you at your placement location.
