Homeless Children In Ghana
Accra is the nation’s capital and largest city, with a capacity of about 25 million inhabitants. Though several other regional languages are frequently used, English is Ghana’s official language.
In 2015, Future of Africa fed, cared for, and supported thousands of students living on the streets of Accra, Ghana. Purpose of providing long-term accommodation, food, and a gradual shift to schooling for the children we support, we opened Norviwo Community Centre in 2019. With the addition of a second floor to our temporary home and the purchase of durable furnishings and instructional resources, we now plan to accommodate more students at Norviwo. By creating leaders with empathy and initiative, we hope to put a stop to poverty in Ghana.
Help The Ghanaian Children Leave The Streets
Tens of thousands of kids reside on the roads of Accra, Ghana. Although Ghana has social welfare services, they are unable to meet the enormous needs of homeless children due to a lack of resources.
Every day thousands and hundreds of students in Ghana sleep on the sidewalks.
Our Mission and Efforts
Every week members of the FOA’s staff, volunteers, and fellows go to the alleys to just provide food, basic medical care, and company. To the kids living there. Children that are motivated can choose to be an FOA scholar and enroll at our Norviwo Community Center, where they can graduate and enroll in one of FOA’s neighborhood partner schools after taking programs in life abilities and development and working with FOA Fellow mentors. A way out of the streets and hope are offered by Norviwo to some of Ghana’s most helpless citizens.
In addition to providing food, medical treatment, and crisis intervention to at least 60 children every month, Norviwo’s road outreach program also helps at least 32 children per year transition from the roads to school. This is done through the (NCC) Norviwo Community Center. Future leaders in Ghana will be equipped by our Norviwo Community Center (NCC) and FOA’s Fellows program for college students to meet the requirements of their society’s most vulnerable citizens.
