“Food Sharing Program for Street Connected Children”

The First Lady’s foundation, the Rebecca Akufo-Addo Foundation, has donated many bags of rice, meat, canisters of cooking oil and tomato puree to cook for the children on the street. On April 1st we started our “Food Sharing Program” in Accra and together with other NGO s in Kumasi.


“Helpline for Street Connected Children”

Street children can contact key persons who live in our street area. They own a telephone. With this phone, the street children can reach our street team at any time.


“Great Program for our kids in our home”

18 employees have moved into our homes in Hebron and are currently living there with children and young people. They have a great and varied program with workshops, activities, lessons, etc.  18 employees have moved to our home in Hebron and are currently living there together with all the children. They are enjoying a great and varied program.


“Follow up calls for children and families”

Since we are currently unable to visit the children in their families, we have set up a system to ensure that they are doing well by asking specific questions and consulting with the children, parents and key people in the villages.
