Drumming, dancing and singing lessons are always available for volunteers to learn Ghanaian culture extensively amidst the learning of our local languages. Its all fun fun fun but very educative

PLOG GHANA charity work began with a major interest in football as a sport and the training of players that were discovered to be very talented / skillful but needy, deprived, underprivileged, street boys etc and needed assistance to be well trained and polished to become future stars because their potentials were physically seen and admired by all.

In this plight, street and neighborhood football competitions were organized often and with time gained more popularity among the youth and even to the extent that many people started attending their events as and donated some token gifts for the players. This went on for almost a year and gave birth to the vision, formation and legal registration of Pet Football Development Foundation (PEFDEF) in January, 2011.

In 2012, they could boast of about 25 youth that was extremely talented and skillful in the game of football but also faced a great challenge in providing basic needs for their upkeep because most of them had no family or guardians who sought to provide and cater for their livelihood.

The heartbreaking aspect of it was that, some were actually living on the streets due to the fact that most of them were underprivileged, rural urban migrants, child labor victims, broken home/single parent victims, needy and also those from poor families etc. Therefore the need to further do more in helping them was discovered and so PEFDEF was changed to become Pet & Lisa Organization Ghana (PLOG).

For now, it's not all about football but Plog has the vision, mission and drive for the development of all other Sports disciplines and work with the vocation to Recruit, Support, Educate, Empower and Establish poor, needy, street, rescued & Children/Youth in their future livelihood & career development and also to empower Young Women and assist them in all capacity to alleviate their poverty situations.

Their credo is based on sustainable development, and thus, apart from social empowerment, environmental protection is our priority so as to make the World a better place for all. Our focus areas of interest include;

Children/Youth Health, Education, Entrepreneurship, Sports and Environmental Sustainability which is known to Plog as the
C. H. E. E. S. E INITIATIVE

Our goals and action lines:

At PLOG, we think that local community development and childhood, youth and especially the Girl-child & Young women empowerment is only possible if seen as an integrated process where first level needs including food & nutrition, proper care, clothing and health care are combined with education & skill training, counseling, mentorship, sport activities and loving parental guidance are provided. All these activities require proper, safe and strategic implementation.

• Our main objective and vision is Preserving, Protecting and assisting children/youth/women in vulnerable situations from generation to generation through the provision of some basic needs, Education, Mentorship, Vocational/Skill training/talent discovery/creativity, Sports Development as well as humanitarian/developmental aid.
