Giving street children a chance

It is the goal of Chance for Children, to empower the street children in Accra to take their lives into their own hands. We achieve this by providing the children with love, safety and security as well as enabling them school education and professional training.

 

Chance for Children is an accredited non-governmental organisation (NGO) according to Ghanaian law and a non-profit organisation according to Swiss law. The organisation was founded in 1999 by Daniela Rüdisüli Sodjah and Amon Kotey, who both lead it until today together with Daniel Awuley Nartey. By now there are 50 Ghanaian and 2 European employees working on accompanying the children into a self-dependent life with a promising perspective.

 

At the moment Chance for Children is supporting approximately 150 children and adolescents. So far more than 60 former street children have completed school as well as professional training with the support of CFC and are now living self-dependently or could be reintegrated into their families without any further financial support.
