Esther, a young girl growing up in Ghana, faced immense challenges but rediscovered her inner strength through art. Her story shows the importance of empowering girls and promoting gender equality, especially on International Day of the Girl Child. Globally, girls face many inequalities. But through positive change, we can support girls in fulfilling their dreams, creating a brighter future for everyone.
The power of family and community
Children belong in families, not in orphanages. Family is God’s design. And only family and a community of support have the power to provide the best outcomes for children.

Mental health is at the heart of all we do
Stronger mental health services build stronger families that protect the well-being of children and youth. That’s why, with a mission to protect children, empower youth, and strengthen families we cannot ignore mental health. It’s integrated into every service we provide and always pays back. Whether rescuing a child from trafficking in Ethiopia, assisting refugees walking through Colombia, empowering youth in Haiti to overcome systemic poverty, or stabilizing families in Ghana──mental health is at the heart of all we do.
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.
