We envision a world where every person living in a rural community has access to quality education, adequate health resources, and opportunities for sustainable income.

PACE Ghana connects doctors and nurses from Ghana and the U.S. to together enhance the quality of health care in the community, and provides medical resources, facility improvements, and community health education.
PACE Ghana partners with community members to provide income-generating opportunities.
PACE-Ghana provides opportunities for individuals and groups to live, work and interact with each other in rural communities in Ghana.
Thanks to PACE-Ghana and its wonderful leadership, nursing students and faculty of the Department of Nursing at Le Moyne College were hosted for two Study Abroad trips to Ghana in January 2013 and 2014 ... to provide health care to the people of Worawora, Ghana ... The Ghanaian people were so welcoming and this cultural immersion opportunity changed our minds and our lives forever.
The time I spent partnering with PACE-Ghana was an unbelievable and transformative experience. For two weeks the staff at PACE shared with us some of the most beautiful parts of their country including its rich history and culture ... We were welcomed into their home and community with open arms are truly were made to feel part of their family.
Through the Global Outreach (GO!) program at Fordham, I had the opportunity to work alongside PACE-Ghana in May 2013. My team’s goal was to rebuild a classroom block for the Local Authority Elementary School. While we worked, we were surrounded by the school children. It was a delight to play with them on our breaks – dancing, playing soccer, and simply holding their hands.
Global Outreach at Fordham University has been collaborating with PACE Ghana since 2007. We have developed a strong partnership with PACE Ghana and we feel as though our students grow from their experiences with this organization. Each year our students learn through their work with the communities in Worawora and the Gold Coast.
In January 2014, I had a great opportunity to travel to Ghana, West Africa with PACE Ghana and the Le Moyne College Department of Nursing ... We were able to provide medical care to numerous Ghanaians in the hospital as well as in the local community of Worawora, a rural town in Ghana ... All the activities we participated in were life changing and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
