The NGOs include the Banel International, Butterfly Effect Consult, Godly Woman Foundation, Grace Foundation, Stand Up and Walk Foundation, Irule Foundation, Child Crest Foundation.
Others involved are Alvyderks Foundation, Dynamic United Stars Africa Foundation, Jacinta Steven's foundation and Global Youth Careave are jointly building the dormitory as part of their effort to impact the lives of young girls at the orphanage.
Founder of the Blessings Academy Orphanage simply known as Emmanuel revealed that after living in Accra for 11 years, he decided to materialise a passion and dream.
In 2006, Emmanuel began the orphanage with six children who were victims of a capsized boat on the Volta Lake.
Currently, the home takes care of about one hundred and fifty children.
However, the children sleep in about two mud houses and two other dilapidated separate single rooms.
A combined team of specialists in the medical and business field who serve as mentors to these young girls teach them about personal hygiene and sexual reproductive health.
The team has reached out to the public to solicit funds or materials such as cement, iron rods, sand and roofing sheets to help the team complete the project in December 2019.

Meanwhile, telling photos of mothers with babies strapped to their backs while journeying across a stream at Mognori, the Ghana-Burkina Faso border in Bawku, Upper East region have emerged online.
And there’s nothing simple about the photos which convey powerful messages of what mothers especially those in deprived areas go through as they go about their daily activities.
While this is not unique to just the women, these mothers risk their lives and those of their children as they jostle and bustle in an effort to make something meaningful of their day.
