about anomabu

Originally a small fishing village, Annamaboe eventually became one of the most important trading ports on the Gold Coast. By the 18th century, the town had become one of the largest exporters of slaves on the West Coast of Africa. The Anomabu fort became the center of British slave trading along the Gold Coast until the practice was outlawed in 1807.

the challenges

Before we can help, we must first learn more about the challenges the members of our community face. We have received reports from volunteers on the ground in Anomabu and planning a trip to Ghana in 2018 to learn more about how we can make an impact.

CHALLENGE #1

 QUALITY EDUCATION

Basic education infrastructure available in the town is inadequate, and also these schools are in a dilapidated state. Schools are forced to run a shift system (morning and afternoon sessions) to cater for the large number of students.

Washrooms are also inadequate to cater for needs of the students and teachers. The available washroom facilities are in a deplorable state and unhygienic for students use.

CHALLENGE #2

 INADEQUATE SANITATION 

The town has sanitation teams who are responsible for the regular clean up exercises in the various neighborhoods. These sanitation teams lack the resources to effectively undertake cleaning activities around Anomabu and the surround areas..

CHALLENGE #3

HEALTHCARE 

Anomabu Health Center lacks an in-patient ward to handle emergency health conditions. The nearest hospital is at Saltpond, 10km from Anomabu. Medical emergencies such as child birth, vehicle accidents often lead to fatalities.

OUR SOLUTION

INFRASTRUCTURE EmpowerS lives AND disableS dependency.

Our vision is to be a primary resource for education and healthcare, enabling Anomabu to become self-sustaining and to reach its fullest potential. To support that goal, we are building a house in Anomabu.
