Grant Recipient: Mother’s Heritage International

This organization is in its early stages of development, having been founded in 2018 by a summer Global Leadership Adventures staff and our local partner when they saw a need in the community.

Mother’s Heritage International is entirely community based and serves to help rescue, educate and support girls and women in Ghana through community education and helping to rescue and provide refuge for trafficked girls. While the organization is just getting off the ground, they have successfully completed three medical missions, and hosted their volunteer who has helped us reach out and educate other young women. Currently, donations go toward the cost of buying land, materials, and the other needs to create a home for the girls we would like to rescue from Lake Volta.
