Who We Are
We are a group of people seeking world peace and bringing smiles to people in need.
The project aims at assisting a total of 1900 beneficiaries during the project and as many as 1200 Politicians, Religious Leaders and Youth to know the negative consequences that WAR brings to HUMANITY. In addition, an institutional framework will be put in place to develop a strategy to ensure the long – term sustainability of the project. The project will give specific attention
to the needs and rights and peace of the Child and Humanity in the Country.
During this period the project will give special attention to the target group through sensitization as well as consolidating the institutional structures for a long term sustainability of the project.
Approval of an expansion component will be considered after the initial 4 years of the project, following a preliminary assessment of achievements under the pilot project. The expansion component will cover other identified sites in the project area.

CONTENTS OF THE PROJECT
All over the developing world, the issue of Political Conflicts and Child Abuse is on the rise and Ghana is no exception to this phenomenon. In spite of the fact that Ghana is the first country, south of the Sahara to adopt the UN convention on Peace and the right of the Child, cases of Political Conflict and Child Abuse abound in the country.
Prior to the preparation of this project document, a research covering the entire project site (Agona Swedru and its immediate surrounding areas) was conducted. The main objective of the research was to ascertain the fundamental issues pertaining to conflict and child abuse.
One of the major findings was that (more than 10%) of the population of children sampled would have wished to be in school. However they are not in school, due too parental neglect and inability of parents and guardians to send their children to school for lack of resources (poverty)
In politics, everything we do, the winner takes all and poor management of our economy have led to illiteracy, broken marriages/homes due to ignorance on the part of parents and guardians as a result. The world will not see or enjoy PEACE and all the time Child Abuse and cases of conflicts will be on the increase.
Conflicts and Child Abuse cases also identified during the survey included sexual exploitation, child labor, parental neglect, child delinquency, child trafficking and physical assault against children. Very often, reports of these forms of abuse are carried in the mass media. In the first quarter of last year 2014, a woman was sentenced to death for assaulting her step son to death, for no fault of the boy. The research carried out indicated that this vulnerable group of children will benefit from NMFP’s program.
