About Future of Africa, assisting homeless youth in Ghana

Two Ways To Serve

At Future of Africa we have several opportunities for people to make a difference with our organization. Of those, giving time is one of the most valuable to the future of our children and we have two different options available to do so.

Volunteers doing street outreach in Accra, Ghana

Norviwo Extended Family 

Norviwo Extended Family (NEF) are local or international individuals, donors, and partners who believe in our work, and our street residents. They support FOA’s work through fundraising, and by giving time, knowledge, and skills to add value to FOA's work. NEF volunteers share their expertise to advance FOA’s programs and operations, they connect us to their networks and become advocates for children in street situations. We believe in global citizenship driven by people who are engaged locally.

Future of Africa Leaders

FOA Leaders are High School and University student volunteers who believe in the inherent worth and potential of children and youth living in poverty. Our FOA Leaders participate in weekly street outreach programs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. They play fun games with street residents, teach basic literacy and numeracy, respond to first aid needs and keep us in tune with the pulse of the streets. They also serve at our community centre, facilitating programs or supporting administrative work.

Our volunteers model a new African leadership - demonstrating values of service, compassion and justice, a commitment to addressing social issues, and improving the quality of life of children and youth - Africa's biggest advantage for socio-economic development.

  • What I really want in life is to help every kid I come into contact with and make a positive impact in their life no matter how low they feel. For my plans in furthering my education, I believe God’s time is the best.

Every Moment Counts

Every moment a child is off the streets and in the classroom is another moment for the Future of Africa.
