We believe in the rights of all children, everywhere and that they should be valued, protected and met by all.

We exist to make this the reality for children in northern Ghana, where more than half of all families live in poverty. With our support, they are lifting themselves out of poverty and ensuring their children are healthy, safe and in school.

 

What we do

We work with all levels of society from parents and community groups, to the government and private sector, to ensure that child protection, education and health systems work for all children, but especially those most at risk, including children without a safe home, children living with disabilities and girls.

How we do it

Our work is entirely led by local staff with a simple approach of listening to their communities and empowering them to make sustainable changes themselves.
