International Day of Street Children

Children in the DIC

We were celebrating the International Day of Street Children. We took part in a program held by the Department of Social Welfare in Agbobloshie. Our street workers were creating awareness about the situation of street children in Accra. Our social workers in our Drop In Centre and in our home in Hebron were teaching our children about the rights of street children. We made this day a memorable day for all the children on the streets. Their rights can not be ignored!

15th anniversary of CFC        

Out of a few workers and a hand full of children in 1999, a team has developed of over 40 workers supporting around 150 former street children. What remained over the years is our goal to convey street children how to go through life in a self-determined, self-confident manner which allows re-integration into the Ghanaian society. In the name of all children and workers, we thank you for your interest and continuous support.
