Mental health is as essential as the air we breathe
Mental health support is foundational to every service and program Bethany offers to protect children, empower youth, and strengthen families with an impact that lasts.
Youth in Ghana face many harsh realities including poverty, violence, and trafficking. Let's work to give them every opportunity to build resiliency to the things that can make life harder.
Safe, loved, and—most of all—connected
Parenting in the best of times can be stressful, and raising children without a community of support is harder still. For parents feeling isolated and overwhelmed, the ways they do or don't cope with stress may put their children in harm’s way. Key to ensuring the children are OK is making sure their parents are OK.
Preserve a family, not rescue a child
Our calling to keep children safe with their families, not from their families, is motivated by our faith in who God is and the radical love he calls us to.
