NAWA’s Humanitarian Projects have been at the heart of our organization since it began and is the focus and mission of all who join. All of the projects we support are focused on improving the lives of women and children in Ghana.

FOCUS AREAS & SUPPORTED ORGANIZATIONS
In the 2016/2017 season, we approved grants for the following causes:
NAWA sponsors training and development of skills for women to have reliable sources of income. We have worked with DUNK-Grassroots and other NGOs to empower women with self employment skills. This includes but is not limited to sewing, beekeeping, beading, and batik making.
As quoted in the Agenda 2030 document, global communities and development partners must work towards "increasing life expectancy, reducing maternal and infant mortality, reducing killer diseases like malaria, Tuberculosis, polio and HIV."
NAWA has collaborated with MIMI Clinic in the Volta region as well as the Police Hospital in Accra on health related projects. NAWA grants have been used to provide privacy curtains, benches in OPDs, and donations of items for newborn babies.
Access to education is not always a guarantee of quality education. We see this in numerous communities in Ghana.
Path of Joy, an affiliate of the Ananda Marga Movement in Ghana, has received a grant for the construction of 2 biofill digesters for 7 toilets at their school in Kasoa. We have supported many schools to install boreholes for improved access to clean water.
Environment360, a Ghanaian NGO received a NAWA grant to support its activities with school children to be conscious of reusing and recycling of plastics.
