World Vision Ghana will roll out an ambitious project in April to accelerate Ghana’s achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The project, dubbed “Transforming Household Resilience in Vulnerable Environments (THRIVE),” is envisioned to build secure and resilient livelihoods in the poorest communities in the Northern, Upper East, Upper West, and Savannah regions of Ghana.

This project will fill gaps left by several livelihood and income-generation interventions and will address critical issues such as poverty, access to financial services, hunger, and malnutrition, among others.

Through collaborative efforts with local communities and partners, the THIVE project will tackle seven of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to accelerate their achievements.

The hope is to create an environment that will accelerate access to sustainable livelihoods, promote economic growth, and create a social environment that ensures the safety and protection of all children.

The Northern Regional Operations Manager for World Vision Ghana, Francis Gumah, hinted at this when he addressed some selected community champions for Savings for Transformation (S4T) and staff of World Vision Ghana at the digitalization of Savings for Transformation workshop held in Tamale.

He said, “Thrive was developed to expand essential livelihood services to better the lives of the most vulnerable children in the most deprived communities in northern Ghana.”

The manager said the THRIVE project affirms World Vision Ghana’s commitment to eliminating the root causes of poverty and injustice that affect children. World Vision Ghana strives to create an environment that enables children and their families to thrive.

“This project will focus on promoting sustainable and inclusive livelihoods, economic growth, and a social environment that ensures the safety and protection of all children,” he added.

The THRIVE project, funded by World Vision United States of America, is part of World Vision Ghana’s five-year strategic development plan, which seeks to address the basic needs of 3.3 million children, their families, and communities, including WASH, education, child protection, and nutrition.

The project manager, Justice Azare Atiiga, said the project will be implemented in Zabzugu, Bawku West, Garu, Builsa South, Wa West, East Gonja, Bodi, and Kassena Nankana West, among others.

The project will increase access to finance through fast loans, as well as introduce profitable and sustainable enterprises to ensure households’ income security.

THRIVE intends to reach out to 246,000 households, approximately 1.7 million people directly and 1,078,000 indirectly, by 2030. The project also targets 644,000 adolescents and disabled persons directly and 93,800 indirectly for transformation.

World Vision Ghana is a child-focused humanitarian, relief, and emergency organisation that seeks to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children, families, and communities.

It does this through four transformative technical programming areas: health and nutrition (HEAL), livelihood and family and environment (life), reading improvement in education (RISE), and child protection and advocacy.
