Justina lives in the mountainous community of Adamrobe, home to approximately 2,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group is Akans and the most commonly spoken language is Akuapem.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, fish, bread, cassava, plantains, bananas, chicken and rice. Common health problems in this area include malaria, cholera and work accidents. Most adults work in factories or as market traders and earn the equivalent of $20 per month. This community needs vocational training, educational materials and improved roads.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of St. Paul's Anglican Child Development Center to provide Justina with Bible classes, health screenings, hygiene education, outdoor games, social clubs, vocational counseling and educational field trips. The center staff will also provide HIV/AIDS awareness programs, hygiene and nutrition education and parenting training for the parents or guardians of Justina.
The Republic of Ghana is a coastal country in western Africa with a tropical climate. This small country is hot and humid as it borders the Gulf of Guinea. Once called the Gold Coast, Ghana is rich in natural resources including gold, diamonds and rubber. Even though the country is wealthy in resources, about 45 percent of the population lives in extreme poverty, making less than U.S.$1 a day.

Most of Ghana's more than 23 million people live in cities. About 98 percent of the population is African, split among six major tribes. But Ghana is flooded with refugees from its neighbors - war-torn Cote d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Togo. Nearly 69 percent of the population is Christian, 16 percent is Muslim, and 8 percent follow indigenous beliefs. English is the official language, but some people speak native African languages such as Akan, Moshi-Dagomba, Ewe and Ga. Compassion works primarily in the coastal region in southern Ghana.

Though Ghana was the first British colonial country in Africa to gain its independence, it has been plagued by political violence since it was established in 1957. Between 1957 and 1979, Ghana experienced a series of bloody and bloodless coups. Finally in 1992, a new constitution establishing a multiparty government was adopted and remains in place today. John Kufuor was elected Ghana's president in 2000, and began serving his second term in 2004.
