GirlThe Village of Hope (VOH) was started by Christians in the United States and Ghana in 1989. Its mission was to care for orphaned, abandoned, destitute and needy children. Since its establishment many poor, hungry, homeless and hurting children have been cared for.

VOH is now located in Fetteh, an hour’s drive west of Accra. It has a spacious campus with homes for the children and staff, Kindergarten, Primary, Junior Secondary & Senior Secondary Schools, clinic and a church building. Presently, VOH is caring for 235 children. 62 of these are living in 3 homes on the campus. Each of these homes has a mature Christian couple, acting as house parents, who care for the children. VOH provides care for 49 more children who are living with Christian foster parents in several towns and villages throughout Ghana. In addition, 120 street children (70 boys and 50 girls) are being cared for by the VOH Street Children Program.

These children are blessed to experience the love of Christ as demonstrated by their house parents and the entire staff at VOH. VOH not only provides food, clothing, shelter, education and medical care – the children are also being raised in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Over the years, a number of the children have become faithful Christians. The children begin and end each day with a 30 minute devotional. The last time we visited it was wonderful to see them laugh and learn, play and praise, and be raised in such a wonderful environment.

The Village of Hope is overseen by the elders at the Vertical Center church of Christ. Fred Asare has been the director of the VOH since its beginning. Financial and other assistance is provided by Ghana West Africa Missions in Searcy, Arkansas.
