The Jewish community's response to extreme poverty

 

Want to play a significant role to enable marginalised and vulnerable people to transform their lives? As long as there is suffering, we believe we have an obligation to do something about it.

We work with communities in Northern Ghana to enable young people to stay in school, achieve meaningful learning outcomes and gain the skills and confidence they need for productive and secure employment.

We partner with local organisations, in Northern Ghana and selected areas of India, to improve incomes and economic opportunities of poor and marginalised people.
