Ghana Without Orphans Gathering Highlights Importance of Child Protection
Ghana Without Orphans (GWO) organized a two-day conference on best practices in the judicial process of protection and care for children in Ghana in collaboration with Strengthening Families for Abandoned Children United Kingdom (SFAC UK) and the Judicial Training Institute of Ghana. The gathering was supported by the Department for Foreign and International Development (DFID UK).
At the conference, current laws and policies relating to orphans and vulnerable children were reviewed and gaps were identified where improvements can be made in the current system in the area of childcare and protection. The conference also advocated for the creation of an inter-institutional commission to implement and monitor best practices across the country, which is a huge step forward for Ghana!
