About Nandom ...

Chalice’s Nandom Sponsor Site is located in the remote northwest of Ghana. The weather is unpredictable with the average annual rainfall being around 100 cm, almost all of which occurs between May and October. Nandom is an agricultural community and many people make their living in small scale farming. In this region, it is very common for young adults to migrate south. The area is arid and significant water shortages remain a great challenge to development. The area does have the advantage of a higher literacy rate than the region due to the work of the White Fathers, Missionaries of Africa. They provide assistance to rural families living in arid conditions. Children, especially girls, are motivated and encouraged to attend classes regularly, and study hard.  Education is the key to development and promoting the “girl child” in this traditional society. Many children are  being cared for by elderly relatives who are illiterate, which provides a great advantage to community programming. The Site focuses on further developing the parents and guardians through Faith Circle work.
