The Day Center
The main building on our site
The main goal of 2021 was the full construction of the main building: the day-centre. This is the biggest and most important structure on the site. In 2022 and 2023, the goals were to furnish, prepare, and finalise the day-center
In the day-center, the members of Peace Home are able to get stimulated appropriately to develop mentally and physically in ways that suit each individual. Seeings as Peace Home supports youth with all kinds of disabilities, we believe in individual approach for everyone.
Peace Home's focus is not on academic teaching, but is more revolved around developing the children's interests and talents.
The day-centre consists of four spaces: two main block structures are surrounded by a big veranda. On the right side of the building, there are two classrooms openly planned: it can function as separate spaces for diverse functions, or become one large classroom for group activities. These spaces are used for workshops, music and craft activities, as well as different kinds of classes.
The block structure on the left consists of a large space for various different kinds of therapy such as physiotherapy, speech therapy, nursing and medication, occupational therapy. The office is also in this block: a smaller space where meetings with anyone, including family members, can take place.

The first building
The kitchen area, storage, and bedrooms
In 2020 the first building was built on the site for Peace Home.
Firstly, this building consists of the kitchen for the cooking of the daily meals for Peace Home's members living in Busua (17 youth with disabilities).
The room next to the kitchen functions as the storage and the three rooms above are bedrooms for the team, future temporary workers or possibly future volunteers.
Peace Home believes that a calm and natural environment is healthy for everyone and therefore keeps the site as green as possible and tries to keep a natural look to the structures on the site. This first building consists mostly of wood and raffia (palm tree leaves). The gallery below will give an idea of this natural look we are trying to achieve.
The Vegetable Garden
