The Partner West Africa Daycare & Nursery Centre

Based in Partner West Africa's compound between Kokrobite & Oshieye, Ghana, you will find the humble but heart-warming PWA Daycare & Nursery Centre for Vulnerable Children. 

Opened in 2014, the Centre offers the most vulnerable local children - aged 2 to 5 years - daily care, a nutritious feeding programme, safe drinking water, immunisations & daily healthcare, a pre-school education, and a safe and caring environment in-which children can be children.
 
 
Quite simply, the Centre both saves and improves children's lives. And for that reason, perhaps unwittingly (but with absolutely no regrets) it has become our flagship project, making significant use of the time, skills & resources our charity has to offer.

Creative Early-Years Education & Child Rights

A fantastic programme providing vulnerable, young, West African children with access to a creative education that promotes imagination, exploration, and access to creative extra-curricular activities. At the same time, this programmme protects the right of children to have access to a free and fun childhood, in which children are free to be children. This programme helps to achieve the objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No. 4: 'Quality Education': from policy to practice, this programme brings magic to little minds.

International Schools Partnership Programme

PWA's 'International Schools Partnership Programme' has been operational since 2013 & has created effective and valuable partnerships between schools in West Africa and schools from the international community, allowing students to reach out to their counter-parts from different backgrounds, cultures and circumstances. The Programme offers cultural & academic projects & field trips which bring children together, breaking down cultural barriers, unpicking prejudices, & encouraging children to become responsible global citizens.

 

Our role is to remove the hard-work and risk from your staff in the planning & execution of what are often complex, ethical, logistically demanding relationships.

Malaria Prevention Programme (MPP)

PWA's Malaria Prevention Programme (MPP) delivers a range of malaria screening, prevention, and education services which allow local families to protect themselves. Based on the high level of infant and child mortality associated with malaria in our local communities, this programme, quite simply, saves lives. Having passed through it's Phase-1 research, testing & implementation, our MPP is now being scrutinsed by our monitoring & evaluation team to prepare our 2017 MPP scope of works.

Children's Health, Hygiene & Nutrition

This Partner West Africa programme offers a broad range of free and essential basic healthcare services to vulnerable children & families across Ghana. With a focus on family and children's healthcare, hygiene, bacteria control, and food preparation - for a balanced and nutritious diet - we undertake a broad range of community workshops and events, covering both theory and practice - allowing local people to improve their own living conditions & helping achieve the objectives of the United Nations SDG No. 3 'Health & Well Being'.

Female Health & Gender Equality

In this new Partner West Africa programme, we are seeking help to establish and build an effective and sustainable set of services that will truly empower and protect women and girls from the local, underprivileged Ghanaian communities we serve.

This programme aims to raise awareness about, and deliver services to support, gender rights and women's healthcare and ensure that Partner West Africa can develop best practice policies and approaches in this critical area of gender empowerment.
 

Fundraising, Promotion & Journalism

For those seeking entry-level practical and policy experience in a development setting, work with our passionate NGO team to help promote local issues, raise funds, campaign, and tell the world about the challenges and difficulties the children and families we support face on a daily basis. 

Work in policy, fund-raising, promotion or journalism, and learn about the complexities of development work while helping PWA to attract new support and deliver improved services.
 
 

Engineering, Design & Development Planning

In this new PWA programme, available from January 2018, we are appealing for engineers, designers, project planners & managers, and any volunteers with skills or expertise in helping us identify, research, formally prepare and propose a broad range of international development projects.This programme will suit all those interested in applying technical and administrative skills in order to help PWA develop our portfolio of well structured and planned projects and/or to assist our fund raising team to then secure partners and grants to launch and complete the planned works.
