Many of the women in Ghana are left as widows, either through death or desertion. In this context, it becomes virtually impossible for these women to provide for their children. Oftentimes, they are faced with the gut-wrenching decision of keeping children whom they cannot feed, putting them in an orphanage, or giving them to someone in Ghana’s substantial fishing industry who promises food, shelter, and education. The sad reality is this usually only provides a life in slavery on Lake Volta. Feeding The Orphans provides single mothers with artisan training, materials, and a market to sell their goods. The ultimate goal is to provide a means for generating income so that their family can stay together. These single mothers also receive training as disciples of Christ, so that they are able to grow in their faith and raise up their children in the joy of the Lord. Today, nine women are employed and paid a fair wage by Feeding the Orphans.
