Dodowa, Ghana


John and Irene Nyavor never say no to a child in need. Throughout the years they have fostered and educated hundreds of children and worked to help dozens of others get off the street and into school or find a vocation.

They have created homes filled with love and hope and we appreciate and value their dedication to the children of Ghana. We have provided them with sack and container gardens, but they did not have the land to meet our requirements for an aquaponics system until now. 

A recent move from Accra to Dodowa gives them more land for the children to play and a place for an aquaponics system. About a dozen young men have grown up with the Nyavors and are ready to enter the workforce. We look forward to working with them to create opportunities as they learn how to work with aquaponics.

About Mary Afari

Whenever we are in Ghana, we stop in to see Mary and the kids she works with at her school, the Golda Meir Academy in Hohoe. Mary's school is in a rural area surrounded by farms. Most families don't own the land they farm, but work the land for very little return. Most of the kids would work next to their parents in the field if Mary's school was not there.

The last time we were there, most had not eaten the night before or the morning before school. Their only meal had been at school.

Mary is a seamstress and uses much of the money she makes at her small shop in Hohoe to care for the kids and keep the school running.

She is an inspiration and we will add to her vegetable garden this trip.


Our schedule has not been finalized yet, but we will have training sessions in each city during this time frame:

May 10 -12 Accra

  May 14 -16 Kumasi

  May 18 - 19 Hohoe
