AMERICAN RELIEF CENTERS

Philosophy in Action

American Relief Centers (ARC) operates shelters for abused women & children in Ghana.

• We actively provide a pathway for victims of physical and sexual abuse to seek safe refuge, medical attention, legal / justice support.

• We empower women & children victims with education and/or job training.

• We run sensitisation seminars regarding physical & sexual abuse through Ghanaian schools, including self defence classes for female students.

• We finance life saving surgeries for children from families in destitute.

•​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​We care for abandoned children who are often left at hospitals after being born with life threatening illnesses or disabilities.

ARC grew from an awareness that there is still inequality in some of our global communities. It is our belief that mankind must be kind to one another if we ever hope to change. We feel it is our duty as human beings to ensure that women and children in all countries are free of rape and sexual violence.

What can we do?



We are committed to being a beacon of light…

Helping Abandoned Children

Our Efforts

Currently, when a child is abandoned, there is a period of time that they may go without care before local authorities are able to find a home for them. During the transition we house and finance the care giving costs for abandoned children before a more permanent home is found for them to be placed in. We built a shelter to accommodate their needs, and now employ 18 local staff to run it.

Victim Support

Our Efforts

American Relief Centers are there to support victims of rape and abuse during the difficult process of recovery. Abused women and children seeking justice and accountability are required to have a full medical examination report performed before a police incident report can even be filed. Many villages are hours away from a hospital, and the fees that doctors charge can be the equivalent to a month’s salary. Most families in such situations can not afford such fees, and many give up on pursuing justice or accountability. In which case, the physical and emotional plight of the individual isn’t addressed and can result in sickness and devastating life altering effects. That is where we step in to help. American Relief Centers offer transportation and sponsor all medical costs. We recently opened up another shelter to provide counselling and a resource center complete with temporary housing for victims leaving abusive situations. We offer medical help, counselling, legal aide and housing.

ARC Surgery

Our Efforts

We have completed over 50 life saving / changing surgeries on children. Many of these children grow up in destitute and whose family has no financial resources to help. These children would die with no medical attention. We work with the best local hospitals & surgeons to deliver this muchly needed service to those children in need the most and have had incredible results.

Self Defence Training

Our Efforts

We have partnered up with the Ghana Education department and we run sensitisation seminars regarding physical & sexual abuse through the Ghanaian schools, including self defense classes for female students. Raising awareness changes the behavior and instills empathy into the views that are held. Without being sensitive to the needs of people around us or particular groups, then an individual may refrain from understanding those people, groups, or even him or herself. Raising awareness about incidents regarding abuse, and how to qualify them as abuse, and how to seek help.

Community Outreach

Our Efforts

We are persistent in our daily outreach. Community outreach and mobilization can encompass a range of interventions and approaches, including: door by door interactions, community meetings; training or sensitization sessions with traditional authorities, community or religious leaders; and at other cultural activities and demonstrations.

So much has changed since American Relief Centers first opened its doors in 2015.

And as I write today, almost 3 years since our founders united in the fight to end this epidemic of sexual abuse of women and children, I couldn’t be more proud of our ever-growing community of supporters and advocates. We have made such incredible progress together.

We can only imagine those many dark days for these women and children. Their fear and utter confusion.. Worst of all, the abused women and children faced a society largely unsympathetic and quick to silence the event, a system rigged to maintain the status quo.

But even that, advances in our efforts to provide the finances and transportation for victims of abuse and prevention education saves lives every day. While there are still challenges to overcome, being a victim of abuse and rape is no longer an experience where you lack the opportunity to seek help. And with continued support in our efforts, Ghana, once a ground zero in the epidemic of sexual abuse of women and children, could become a beacon of hope and triumph for countries all around the entire region.

We have changed the story of these innocent women and children in Ghana.

As we look to the future, we are asking you all to stand by our side.

Help us continue to promote and bring equality and justice to all and provide rape prevention training to the most vulnerable to abuse.

Each year, more than 8,000 students are trained at our seminars, as our organization strives to visit every school in Ghana where we teach abuse awareness to all students, and self-defense to the female students. Our team at American Relief Centers also visits communities on a door by door basis, to inform everyone of their rights and information on how to seek us and help if needed.

At ARC there are opportunities for every individual to help, from spreading awareness, to volunteering, to making a donation.

There are still thousands of women and children living in violence and sexual abuse. Now is the time your support is needed.

American Relief Centers will persevere in the challenges ahead and continue to provide emergency training to those in need.

Our strategy to eliminate the number of incidents of rape and abuse:

We build aware communities by reducing isolation and offering access to help for the victims of abuse.

We reduce incidentsof rape and abuse by leveraging legal accountability and providing abuse reduction education.

We improve the lives of those abused by breaking down the economic barriers and sponsoring the individual’s education and job training.

However, we must remember that equality for all, even by law, is still a work in progress in many regions and will not succeed without our continued effort.

Thank you all for your interest & support!
