Street children in Accra shall be granted a chance to take their lives into their own hands by experiencing love and security as well as receiving a school education and professional training.


We want:

To reach out to children living on the street, identifying their needs and empower them.

To welcome children living on the street in our Drop-In Centre, release them for a few hours from the pressure of living on the street while offering them basic care and opportunities.

To reintegrate street children back into their families and support them when necessary.

To provide a temporary home for children, who cannot return into their families until they can be reintegrated.

To give the children the opportunity to access formal and informal education.

To collaborate with organisations or groups in order to promote the wellbeing of street children.



Honesty: Being open and honest in all our dealings and at all times.

Commitment: Working with urgency and commitment in responding to the needs of the children.

Quality: Always delivering and striving for improvement in quality in everything we do.

Teamwork: Listening to and respecting each other whilst working together to achieve set goals.

Recognition: Appreciating and supporting the role played by each worker. 

Professionalism: Acting with integrity, reliability and responsibility at all times.
