Ghana (ECM)– Every Child Ministries has opened a new girls' home in
Ghana. The home is located on their
8-acre campus called Haven of Hope. The
second home means that they can now take in up to 64 children. They will admit children from their waiting
list as sponsors can be found. Currently
45 children live at Haven of Hope, including 21 girls. Most of them were formerly homeless street
children. Some also needed a home
following slave liberations in Ghana.
boys and girls lived in separate wings of the same home. With the opening of the girls' home, boys and
girls have been separated into their own homes.
Every Child Ministries believes that every orphan and every abandoned child
should be able to experience the joys and comforts of home. God's people have a duty and the high
privilege of welcoming orphans and the outcast into their midst.
Because God has adopted them into His family, ECM staff are able to extend their arms to bring in those who are left behind by the
world. At Haven of Hope, they seek to
provide a safe haven and a loving welcome in the name of Jesus.
Although of course none of the children are forced to
become a Christian, they have seen many of the children freely and joyfully embrace
Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
of Hope is an outgrowth of Every Child Ministries' programs for street
children and children held in ritual servitude. The first home opened in November 2002.
