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 foundation according to swiss foundation 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 60 Ghanaian and 3 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 160 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.
You can find an overview of the organisational structure and the working fields of Chance for Children here.
Daniela is in Switzerland till end of August and is looking forward to sharing more about the situation of street children in Ghana and CFC’s positive impact in their lives. For event details, click here.
