Leave a legacy to GCT in your will
Leaving a gift in your will to the Ghanaian Children’s Trust will help us to continue to support the orphaned and destitute children in Ghana to ensure they have a secure place to live, food to eat and an education that will allow them to fulfill their potential as adults.
Check out all the other ways you can support GCT by popping over to our Donate page. There are several ways you can help, even just by shopping at your favourite grocery store!
What We Do
Our aims are to provide a secure home and an education for street children, orphans and children from poor families. Some of the children have been orphaned by AIDS, others may have parents who are alcoholic or suffer mental health problems and are therefore unable to care for their children. The Ghanaian Childrens Trust needs your help to pay the salaries of the staff, school and university fees, books, utility bills, food and clothing. The provision of nutritious food is essential as poor diet has a detrimental effect on the childrens health and development.
The Ghanaian Childrens Trust is a United Kingdom (UK) based charity working to relieve poverty and distress amongst children and young people in Ghana. The Trust supports particularly, but not exclusively, the young people who are resident at the King Jesus Charity Home in Boadi, Kumasi, Ghana. King Jesus Charity Home is a non-governmental organisation that relies totally on charitable donations to meet all its expenses.
Supporting the Children of Ghana!
Lack of nutritious food can have a detrimental effect on the children’s health and development. With your help, we can introduce protein, calcium, fruit and vegetables into the children’s diet.
Community and Corporation support!
Funding from community groups and corporations can make a huge diffence in the lives of the orphaned and neglected kids of Ghana.
Making a real difference!
Money donated to the GCT gets put towards maintaining the health and wellbeing of the kids, which sometimes extends to larger projects like the replacement of the orphanage roof.
