ECOSOC is the Principal Organ coordinating the Economic and Social Council Work of the United Nations and the Specialized Agencies and International Institutions.

WFWO Ghana Ambassador for Development Network is a body within the WFWO dedicated to advancing the Millennium Development Goals in Ghana in close connection with WFWO’s headquarters. Areas of concern include Education, Women Empowerment, Poverty Reduction, Food Security, Health, Clean Drinking Water, and Elimination of Infant Death as a result of malnutrition.

Since 2008, WFWO Ghana Ambassador for Development Network (GADN) has undertaken various studies and advocacy programs with the objective of getting well informed about the nutritional status of children in the villages in Ghana as well as giving mothers guidelines on good nutrition practices. We have done these with the help of volunteers from Germany, USA, the UK, Singapore, and Spain.

We are in need of volunteers, especially nurses, educationists, social workers, administrators, statisticians, doctors, builders, nutritionists, agriculturists, and other skill-workers. There are opening for other areas for volunteers from all background who have a passion for helping others, creating a future for those who would otherwise have no future, etc. Those who relate who relate well to children are encouraged to apply.
