The Adonia Orphanage vision is nothing less than the transformation of AIDS orphans from hopeless, suffering victims into productive members of their community with an exciting vision for a greater Ghana.

Adonia Orphanage Children’s Home, our central project, is currently housing and caring for 127 children between the ages of 1 and 17. There are 70 girls and 57 boys, all . An AIDS orphan is defined as a child who has lost one or both of their parents to AIDS. Seven of our children are HIV positive. HardtHaven Children’s Home first opened its doors on May 28th 2013. We believe that anyone anywhere can help to change these little lives, through the inexpensive care provided by this children’s home We offer more than just food, clothing, and shelter; we offer education, employment skills, and a loving home. Our ultimate aim is for the orphanage to be self-supporting as we begin implementing various alternative livelihood projects and receive renewable support from people around the globe.

Combined with the skills and participation of international volunteers, Adonia offers unique opportunities for both volunteers and orphans to make a lasting, life changing difference in each other’s lives.

During school terms, majority of children in the orphanage attend school during the day and with that in mind we combine teaching and care wherein volunteers can work at the orphanage school in the morning, then offer care and needed support, mentor or play games with the children at the orphanage in the afternoon. This will make a greater impact on each child's life by teaching them at school and giving them your individual attention, love and care in and outside of the classroom. You should come prepared with ideas for activities suitable for children of different ages – think of your favorite playground games, nursery rhymes, stories, arts and crafts sessions!

The volunteer care work in Ghana is an ideal way to get involved and help improve the welfare of vulnerable children. Working with children can be fun and a rewarding experience that anyone interested in children’s issues can join. The only quality required of a volunteer is to have compassion, patience and desire to work with children.

You don’t have to have much before you give, for the little you have can make a differen
