About Future of Africa, assisting homeless youth in Ghana

Future of Africa has been serving children in street situations in Accra, Ghana, since 2015, and year-over-year has been instrumental in making a difference in the streets, and in the lives of youth that we find there.

"Lets go!"

With our street outreach program, Midzo, we work with children and youth who are living hand to mouth, and in 2020, due to COVID-19, we increased our street outreach activities from one to three times a week. We are also in the streets of Accra responding to more emergency medical situations—from extreme malaria, hit and runs, HIV, stab wounds, and serious infections. We even implemented a new registration system to keep track of the children we serve, and we registered some of our FOA Children on Ghana's National Health Insurance to cut down on medical expenses.

"Let's heal"

Since 2016, we have taken 32 children and youth off the streets and traced 90% of their families. 100% of the 18 who left our program have returned at least once to ask about being accepted back into the program. We have given multiple second chances, but these experiences have exposed crucial gaps in our program that we are in the process of addressing.

In 2021, we will be making a major push for mental and emotional health services to ensure we are equipping our FOA children with the support they need to begin healing from years of trauma and addictions that lure them back to the streets.

"Let's learn & let's be established"

The third to fifth years of our program are the most formative, from learning to learn again in Miasrornu, to becoming fully independent and established in Mialike. We are only now entering the final stages with our three former street residents, and we are so proud of the progress they've made.

In 2016, the Founder of our organization and his wife took the first two children from the streets into their own home and enrolled them in school as a pilot for the system we currently have at Norviwo. Cyril recently graduated top of his class in Junior High School and is currently enrolled in a top Senior High School in Ghana.
