The “Chance for Children Verein Schweiz” is a non-profit association based in Gommiswald according to article 60ff of the Swiss Civil Code. The association is politically and denominationally neutral. The association bases its support on the needs of the street children in Accra, regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender. It aims at providing street children the opportunity to take control of their lives by supporting them materialistically and emotionally, so they can experience love and safety, and receive an education and professional training. The goal is that former street children can live self-determined and independent lives.
