Situation

Many families in the Upper East Region (UER) of Ghana live a hand to mouth existence and are unable to access key services such as education or healthcare. It’s an area where most people live below the poverty line and as a result children’s rights are constantly at risk.

Solution

AfriKids run 17 child rights projects that tackle a range of issues from child streetism and labour to harmful cultural beliefs. We also have three sustainability businesses that AfriKids Ghana own and run with the intention of generating profits. The profit from these sustainability initiatives is saved and pumped back into our child rights projects. For information on our sustainability initiatives and businesses please go to our website.
