WELCOME TO CAVNET

Caring Volunteers Network is a local-based Non-Governmental Organization operating in the Upper West Region of Ghana, its headquarters located in the Wa Municipality, directly behind SSNIT office at Kabanye. The organization has been established to bring help, good health and development to our society, especially, the poor and needy in the rural areas. The organization also identifies brilliant but needy children and assists them in their educational pursuit. Also, the organization is committed to finding lasting solutions to the perennial and pervasive poverty problems in the region and Ghana as a whole.

 

The idea of the formation of the organization was born in 2010 by a group of university students and eventually matured in 2013. These young university students had the desire to come together as an organization after spending two months in deprived communities in the Northern and Upper East Regions, Karimenga and Kansogo respectively. These young university students think that, the solution to the bedeviling poverty that engulfed the region are within ourselves and therefore saw it necessary to take up the challenge. As patriotic and concerned citizens of the region, we think that the only way to fighting poverty in the region is advocating education for all, promoting healthy lifestyles, sanitation and environmental friendliness for better health, ensuring food security and advocacy.
