In 2008 Solace collaborated with New Seed International (NSI), a community-based holistic development organization located in the Volta Region of Ghana. Solace and NSI are committed to improving the welfare of surrounding communities through providing access to healthcare, education, child care, income generation, and avenues of empowerment.
Constructed by Solace and staffed by NSI, the Dorothy Byrne HIV/AIDS Care Center officially opened in 2008 and includes a medical clinic, nursery, school, boarding house, and agricultural projects. Both school and boarding house are designed to integrate orphans and fee-paying children from the community in an effort to eliminate stigma and exclusion through learning and socializing together. The agricultural projects include a poultry and vegetable farm which support New Seed’s school feeding program. The clinic treats about twenty patients a day. Solace is happy to report that the site is now operating under Ghanaian clinician, Livinus Aquah-Jackson.
