Problem Exists:

In Ghana widowhood is not just transition from one marital status to another after the death of one of the partner. Entering into widowhood is more hazardous, painful and humiliating to women than to a widower because of the discrimination, ritual sanctions of the society against widows as a result widows in Ghana not only suffer with social and economic sanctions but also face many psychological consequences, loneliness and in many cases deprivation causing emotional disturbances and imbalance. As a consequence, he or she could not take care of their upspring (children). Hence children became abandoned, neglected and gradually loose their basic rights of development.

The target area is found utter economical crisis. There are 570 Vulnerable children who are utter distress, neglected and trapped. Their education is questionable. Widow mother or father can not afford to meet expenses of their children education. Hence children are deprived of education. Many children do not go to school or dropout. Due to poverty they are tempted and biased with false promises by the middle men and trapped. They became victims of trafficking and engaged in different Companies, hotels, brothels and domestic works. This is not conducive for them.
