In March I was offered a small research grant to analyze NGO’s and Hospital partnerships little did I know shortly after beginning opportunity and passion would fall straight from heaven. Now I am giddy to be able to finally publicly announce
FAMILY FIRST MINISTRIES partnering with Komfe Anokye Teaching Hospital
Being the village it takes to raise a child
For the past 8 months I have spent almost everyday talking with Doctors, Public Health Workers, Local Social workers and community leaders about what it takes to raise a child in Ghana.
The conclusion : A village.
It takes a village to raise a child and when you are raising a child alone or a child with special needs or both it takes a village and a hospital and resources. I pray that Family First becomes the village for families in Kumasi. We hope to be bridging the gap between healthcare and family support preserving families, empowering parents, and educating our community.
So what now? Where do we go from here?
We hope to finalize specific collection data and continue our smaller day to day ministry. Then our goal is to file proper paperwork come January. From there fundraising, networking, preparing, praying and open our doors by June of 2017.
To say we are excited to see what God will do is the understatement of 2016.
For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
