Evangelism and Discipleship
The programme’s objective is to evangelize and nurture the holistic development and maturity of participants in partner institutions and communities of operation. INGH actively runs a comprehensive Evangelism and Discipleship programme which comprises in-house and extracurricular activities that would result in spiritual nurturing and fellowship in all partner institutions including our offices, schools and selected communities of operation. Highlights of the programme include spiritual conferences, youth camps and devotions (worship sessions) in our schools.
Gender & Empowerment
INGH runs programmes to empower vulnerable women economically and psycho-socially through the provision of vocational skills training, counseling and rehabilitation of victims of human rights abuse. The Programme is part of the rehabilitation and reintegration package for the emancipation of women and girls enslaved by the cultural practice referred to as Trokosi/Fiashidi by the Ewe people, or Woryokwe, by the Dangbe people and practiced along the south-eastern coast of Ghana. It was initially targeted at the Trokosis and their relations with a focus on creating conditions for self-employment. Currently, the programme has grown beyond serving Trokosis and their relations. It serves many women in the operational communities of Volta Region.
Health and Longevity
The health programme contributes to the strategic objective of facilitating improvements in the health status of the deprived, with a focus on women and children. It is also aimed at reducing infant mortality and improving maternal health in our communities of operation. INGH undertakes primary healthcare programmes such as medical outreaches/missions that promote the health of people in our schools and communities of operation and protect them from diseases. A key component of this programme is Water, Sanitation and Hygiene which focuses on the provision of potable water and sanitation facilities for school children and communities of operation.
Education and Development
The formal education programme ensures that children in our communities of operation have access to quality education through the provision of school infrastructure and other teaching and learning materials. INGH has a Child Assistance Program (INCAP) which supports needy children through their basic and secondary education. INCAP is carried out through INGH directly managed schools and other partner schools. The key components of the programme include scholarships to needy and brilliant children, provision of school supplies and complementary school feeding.
This programme is aimed at raising awareness on the rights of the child as well as building the capacity of families and communities to protect children from violence and abuse as enshrined in the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, the Children’s Act 560 (1998), the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child. The highlights of the programme is to contribute to the elimination of children in the worst forms of child labour with particular focus on commercial sexual exploitation of children, children in fishing, cultural/ritual enslavement of girls (trokosi) and child trafficking.
