“You don’t have to have much before you give, for the little you have can make a difference in the life of others”- Edem Richard Adjordor – Co-Founder and Executive Director of HardtHaven
HardtHaven is located in Kpando Municipal, in a beautiful green area in the Volta Region of Ghana, that is surrounded by green hills and Lake Volta. It is one of the 25 administrative areas in the region and has over 50,000 inhabitants. The children’s home is located in the one of the most central communities at a walking distance from the biggest hospital and various schools. HardtHaven Children’s Home is nationally recognized for our work caring for and rehabilitating unique cases. We are a registered as 501c3 non-profit organization in the United States of America (EIN# 26-1469965) as well as N.G.O in Ghana (national number G,19,510, local number CM 089121). We work close together with the Department of Social Welfare, Ghana Education Service and Ghana Health Service.
If community based care is not possible, a child can be admitted into the children’s home for direct care. This step is taken only when other resources and opportunities are exhausted. Admission is decided upon in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare. From the moment a child is admitted into the children’s home, we fill all necessary paperwork to become the official caregiver. It is our aim to provide every child with the best possible care in terms of health, nutrition, education and mental support.
