Voice of People with Disability Ghana (VOICE GHANA) is a registered nonprofit, Ghanaian non-governmental organization with Charity No: G -10, 042 and DSW/5710. The organisation was formed in 2002 by a small group of people with disability who had a vision to form an NGO managed and staffed by people with disabilities for the benefit of persons with all category of disabilities in the Volta Region and Ghana.
This philosophy continues to this day as VOICE GHANA has a policy of recruiting more persons with disabilities as Board and staff members. The organization was formerly known as VOLPHIG. This name was changed to VOICE GHANA in 2009 as a result of our strategic direction to transform the organization from a regional based NGO of people with disabilities to a national organization to work with all people with disabilities at the grassroots level in Ghana.
The organization promotes access to quality education for children with disabilities and work as a capacity building organization for all disability self-help groups and disabled people’s organisations at the grassroots level in Ghana. Our special focus is on people with disabilities who have no or limited access to education, perhaps because of their gender, or they live in remote areas or are extremely poor.
