Our Projects

Building Projects

The Potter’s Village Children live in a rented house. We do not have the needed facilities to make the children comfortable.

The first phase of the building project will include:

ORPHANAGE at (Dodowa)

This will include:

  • Administration
  • Boys Dormitory (one block)
  • Girls Dormitory (one block)
  • Storage
  • Dining hall
  • Kitchen
  • Class room block
  • Volunteers House
  • Assembly Hall
  • Church Auditorium


This primary purpose for the construction of this school will be for those children having exceptional interest in handy works.

This will include:

  • Catering
  • Dressmaking
  • Tailoring
  • Hairdressing
  • Beads making
  • Leader works (Shoes and sandals making)


Senior High School/ University:

To serve The Potter’s Village children and other Children across the ten regions of Ghana and beyond whose parents find it difficult affording their tuition fees and providing other educational needs.

This project will include:

  • Administration
  • Class rooms
  • Dormitories
  • Dining Hall
  • Assembly Hall
  • Staff bungalows

NOTE: All projects also serve as income generating activity that will sustain the Orphanage. They will also help the children live a good, healthy and comfortable life.


The Potter’s Village, formerly called Women’s Refuge And Child Survival Africa (WORCSA), since the year 2000 has been supported by many friends, family members, churches, individuals, Delta Airlines, organizations, corporate bodies and volunteers (local & foreign). We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of them including all those who have plans to bring us help.


As we hold a vision of empowering vulnerable women psychologically, economically and also to help vulnerable children to become responsible adults and for them to have fulfillment in life.

To bring this to a reality, a lot of projects and programs are being put in place.
