In 2013, a group of students from Osu's School of Social Work traveled to certain areas for fieldwork as part of their diploma program and witnessed how rural people live in abysmal poverty. Aside from being impoverished, they are confronted with several societal issues such as open defecation, a lack of safe drinking water, a high percentage of illiteracy, adolescent pregnancy, a cholera epidemic, and so on.


To discover long-term solutions to these bottlenecks, students willingly participated in community awareness initiatives and linked communities to available relief resources. The students trained traditional leaders and other stakeholders to use district assemblies for development initiatives. As a result, the Vulnerable Aid Organization was established to assist alleviate the situation of vulnerable people in society. The organization was legally registered in Ghana in 2014. The organization's mission is to promote social change by empowering individuals in need, particularly those with disabilities, to improve their well-being.
