About the Helping Hand TV Show
The Helping Hand TV Show is a media advocacy project initiated by the Here for Perfection (H4P) Organization; a non-governmental organization with the passion to promote the wellbeing of persons with disability in Ghana. This project is aimed at giving voice to the disability community through the media. It also serves as a means of advocating for the implementation of structures and policies to promote the full participation of persons with disability in national development.
The Helping Hand TV Show, has contributed significantly to the improvement of the state of disability issues in Ghana and keeping this TV Show on air would help bridge the wide gap that exist between the abled and disabled in our society. Through H4P’s media advocacy project, some Government bodies are now paying more attention to issues about disability and making some changes to favor persons with disability in Ghana.
The H4P Organization is therefore appealing to all individuals and corporate institutions to support the Helping Hand Project with their donations. Interested persons can contact the H4P Organization on 020 8686777 or 0249 480622 or send their donations to the H4P Project Fund; Account Name: H4P Project Fund, Fidelity Bank Gh.
