Survivors Sanctuary/Peace Pavilion Ghana 2024

Survivor’s Journey to Peace has been working hard for over 5 years to support survivors of domestic violence and our new program to prevent youth homelessness.

We support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are either experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.

At the heart of our work is our Peace Pavilion one bedroom tiny houses–with bathroom, are built in our Survivor’s Sanctuary. This provides secure and stable accommodations for young people at risk of homelessness.

We would be the only non-profit organisation in Ghana delivering the unique combination of housing accommodations and education training and scholarships as a practical and proven strategy in preventing youth homelessness.

It is Survivor’s Journey to Peace mission to provide young people at risk of homelessness the foundations to strengthen their connection to family, community, and education.

Our solution is to:

  • Build one bedroom Tiny Houses(with bathroom) in SJP Peace Pavilion.

  • Provide training and scholarships to ensure ongoing engagement with education or job training.

We believe stable accommodation and education help young people stay connected to their family, to education and with their community. Provide safe and secure accommodation, training and scholarships young people are given the skills to become independent, successful adults.
