HOPE RESTORATION NETWORK
ABOUT HOPE RESTORATION NETWORK GHANA
We commenced curating Hope Restoration Network events in Ghana sometime in 2015, with one powerful mission, thus seeking to transforming the lives of millions of children in deprived communities, with focus on literacy via the provision, fostering and advancement of their rights to basic necessities, including education, healthcare and livelihood.
All these are aimed at commencing and sustaining their long-term developments, as well as individual capacity building for the betterment of selves, locale, country and the world by extension. Four years and counting: We take pride in the impacts and results, while believing more than ever in the core idea of creating favourably acceptable spaces for hope and possibilities for future leaders of our continent. Our organization reaches out to the vulnerable, including children in the toughest of places and amidst the most life-threatening humanitarian traumas, where exploitation, neglect and abuse assume grounded and centre stage conditions.
Our mission is to restore hope to deprived individual(s) and/or group(s) to become agent(s) of change in their own socio-economic developmental settings.
Our vision is to have a larger society in the foreseeable future, where every community will have better standards of education, better standards of living conditions and a healthy environment.
Our focus is to ensure equal opportunity for everyone, irrespective of race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, class, location, religion, and etcetera.
SEXUAL RIGHT AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION
Hope Restoration Network (HRN) is working in alliance with other organizations and government agencies to improve and expand sexual and reproductive health education that satisfies the needs of the less privileged communities, especially young people.
The idea behind our actions and inactions is to ensure girls and young women realize their right to sexual and reproductive health and have control over their lives and bodies—this is critical to achieving gender equality. HRN works with partners in less privileged communities to enable access to information, quality and affordable sexual health services, as well as to eliminate harmful practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM) and early child marriages or forced marriages.
The youth and children in our project catchment areas are lacking in both recreational facilities and sporting equipment. Young people, especially girls are the most vulnerable to social problems that are partly caused by idleness; and sporting activities are sure ways amongst others to meaningfully engage and support the youth in today’s rapidly changing world. It has become an increasing concern that most of the youth are being forced into life of crime because of idleness.
BRIDGING DIGITAL DIVIDE IN ANAKUM COMMUNITY
Access to information and communication technology (ICT) is essential in the developing world, because it is key to improving a country’s educational and economic prospects. However, the cost of new equipment, limited infrastructure and the lack of IT knowledge and proficiency mean that many people still have no access to IT. Today, information technology is seen as one of the major drivers of economic and social development and ICT makes access to information available on an unprecedented scale.
