The issue

According to Ghana’s Department of Social Welfare, there are over 65,000 children and youth between the ages of 8 and 16 living in the streets of Accra.

These young people wipe windshields at traffic lights and beg for money to survive. They sleep on pieces of cardboard boxes laid on the sidewalks and seek shelter under trees when the rains set in. They live on very little and have no access to healthy meals and healthcare. These young people are repeat victims of rape, physical and emotional abuse . They get lured into armed robbery and prostitution by adults who take advantage of their destitution.

Just like any other children, they deserve to live life with dignity.  We journey with them to provide opportunities for their growth and development.

Let’s end child
poverty in Africa
