Our vision in four key values
By providing children with their basic needs and rights, we are rewarded with golden smiles every day! We also see adults stand up and work hard to see their communities flourish. This is the side of Africa we want to share with you and believe the rest of the world should see!
Good intentions or nice gestures are not enough in development work. By focusing on equal relationships instead of dependent ones, we can truly make a difference whilst working towards a positive future. Improving the current situation is only beneficial if the changes persist, especially when foreign support ceases. That is why we start all our projects with the aim of making them self-reliant.
Small-scale projects and transparency
ROFAC is a small organization with a big vision. We communicate personally and directly with our followers and donors to allow them to become involved in our projects and be a part of the ROFAC family. Through our website, social media and annual newsletter, we seek to give you a realistic insight into who we are and what we do. In Ghana, our small-scale focus is evident in the size of our projects. This approach means that we are able to give each child individual attention. Every child and their situation is unique and therefore demands a unique approach. Transparency and realistic reporting allows us to show you both our successes and our setbacks. We try to bring our projects in Ghana closer to you by giving daily updates on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and by sending out a comprehensive annual report and newsletter. We believe it’s important that you know exactly what we do with your donations!
Local focus and cooperation
All of ROFACs projects are established in cooperation with local organizations and work closely with other foreign organizations. By respecting both cultures, we have always managed to overcome existing cultural differences. Neither culture is regarded as better than the other. Since a project cannot become sustainable until local traditions and customs are taken into account, effective communication is very important. And achieving this means that, in turn, we can achieve even more!
