The Senase Project has been volunteering in Ghana for over five years.

Our nonprofit healthcare projects in Ghana are in collaboration with Parliament and developed under the supervision of Ghana Health Services. Big or small, we take on projects in the most cost effective way possible in order to make every dollar count.

What life is like in Ghana.

The quality of life for individuals in Ghana has improved in recent years as the country has seen a rise in the economic sector. However for those in rural areas like the Brong Ahafo Region, a staggering 92% of families do not have access to sanitary medical facilities.

Approximately 260,000 Ghanaians are affected by HIV/AIDS, nearly 30,000 are under age 12. Additionally, 28% of Ghana’s population lives in poverty and in rural areas, roughly 30% of people do not have access to clean drinking water sources.

Malaria in Ghana.

Malaria is prevalent in all regions and health clinics in Ghana. According to the WHO, malaria accounts for 37.5% of all outpatient visits, and 36% of health centre admissions. This makes the need for a clinic like ours both immediate and vital to the Senase community.

Currently, when the people of rural Senase and surrounding areas need medical care they travel to the district capital of Berekum, Ghana.  This journey is an hour long drive at the least if the weather is favorable and that in itself is dependent on if there is a car available.

About the Ghana Health Ministry.

As a critical Sector of the economy, the Ministry of Health seeks to improve the health status of all people living in Ghana. Working in partnership with agencies and stakeholders, the Ministry seeks to improve quality of life by “creating wealth through health” through proactive development across the country. Our parliament representative is the Municipal Chief Executive of the Berekum District in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Our partners at The Ghana Ministry of Health have played a vital role in not only construction and recruiting highly-trained medical staff, but also in the daily operations and functions of the clinic. The progress and success of this project and our organization as a whole would not be possible without them.

Our work is legitimate

The Senase Project is a 501 (c)(3) organization, and our finances are available for download on our reports page. Our relationship with Archbishop Desmond Tutu helped get us off the ground, and in 2014 Forbes blog recognized us as a top small-nonprofit. Since then, we’ve seen incredible success. We’re 100% volunteer-based, and that means all of our donations go toward the people and projects that need them most. We are The Senase Project, working to eradicate poverty through community development.
