We are Jos and Marijke and we have founded Stichting Zaare in order to help widows and their children in the Upper East of Ghana. The aim of our foundation has three parts: living, working and learning.
The foundation wants to give the widows and their children in the Upper East a good home. A complete home costs about 700 euro. Take a look at the pictures.
Do you give this families their own home?
We also help widows to learn and to practice a profession. So they can take care of themselves and their children and generate an income. Widows can learn a profession for about 200 euro. Take a look at the pictures.
Do you give these widows a chance to earn their own income?
At last we give children the opportunity for education. So they can get a better life and future. One school year costs about 75 euro. Take a look at the pictures.
