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 in 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. By adding a second floor to our temporary home and purchasing durable furnishings and instructional resources, we plan to accommodate more students at Norviwo. By creating leaders with empathy and initiative, we hope to stop poverty in Ghana.
Help The Ghanaian Children Leave The Streets
Our Mission and Efforts
Every week members of the FOA’s staff, volunteers, and fellows go to the alleys to provide food, primary medical care, and company to the kids living there. Motivated children 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. Norviwo offers some of Ghana’s most helpless citizens a way out of the streets and hope.
In addition to providing food, medical treatment, and crisis intervention to at least 60 children every month, Norviwo’s road outreach program helps at least 32 children transition from the roads to school per year. 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.
