NEW SEED INTERNATIONAL
helping people living with HIV/AIDS
New Seed International (NSI) is a community orientated, non-Governmental, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, based in the capital of the Volta Region, Ho, in Ghana, West Africa. NSI concentrates specifically on providing care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS. Originally, NSI was a rural community and youth development organization, however, after identifying the suffering of people living with HIV/AIDS, NSI's focus shifted to those infected and affected by the virus, with a special attention given to young women and children.
New Seed International's missions:
New Seed International plays an active grassroot role within the community. We offer the public an array of services, from giving all individuals the opportunity to go for voluntary HIV testing and providing them with pre and post test counseling, to offering expectant mothers relevant and crucial advice. After diagnosis NSI imparts continuous emotional support to anyone living with HIV/AIDS as well as to their families. We hold public seminars and educational events, sometimes directed especially towards the youth, about sexual health, STIs, the importance of a healthy diet and the evils of discrimination. NSI is unique in this part of Ghana for its hands-on, home-centered, and truly personal method of giving emotional, physical and when needed financial support. You can read more about NSI in this newspaper article from the Ghanaian Chronicle.
NSI was founded in 1996 by Livinus Acquah-Jackson (left) and his family and is legally registered under Ghana Registrars General Department company code Act 176 in the year 1998 under the registration number G7563.
