You & Ghana has its roots in the Netherlands where we started as an NGO in November 2015, to connect students and volunteers within the field of healthcare
with our partner facilities in Ghana such as clinics, hospitals and NGO's. This to work together and learn from each other to improve the quality of care focusing on low-cost programs mainly related to the care for mother and child. But along the years we start developing our own programs as well and therefore You & Ghana established their office in Ghana in September 2019 to increase their impact.
We're offering workplaces for volunteers and students within several health facilities in Ghana. Besides getting to know the daily routines of your profession in the facility of your choice, you'll be working on one of You & Ghana's programs to introduce it on the work floor.
Supervision will be done directly by colleagues in the field,
even as by You & Ghana.
To provide health education in communities that are hard to reach we developed an outreach program about Safe Motherhood to inform people about safe pregnancy, delivery and family planning.
Male involvement is one of our spearpoints during the outreaches.
We also believe that there could be a more effective way of preparing new parents on motherhood and therefore we developed our Group Pregnancy Classes program where expecting women will receive health education matching with their stage of the pregnancy by interactive groupsessions.
The You & Ghana Foundation is inspired by two passionate health workers who care for maternal and child health in Ghana. By virtue of being health professionals, we realized there are so many challenges such as inadequate access to healthcare and health education, inadequate hospital equipment as well as understaffed hospitals in the health sector in Ghana. You & Ghana cannot solve all these issues, but we do believe we can make a difference in the society by providing health education, organizing outreach programs on health promotion and supporting health facilities to deliver quality healthcare for expectant mothers, neonates, and infants to reduce maternal, neonatal and infant mortality in the long run. We will connect to care!
