Our Values

Giving street-connected children a chance

Chance for Children aims to give street-connected children in Ghana a dignified life and a better outlook on their future.

Our mission is to improve the safety, well-being and livelihoods of street-connected children and their families.

Our strength lies in our emphasis on understanding the individual needs of every child and leveraging an integrated approach which addresses the health, emotional and social development of our children. In addition, our approach grants access to formal education, vocational training and skill-building to improve livelihoods, while maintaining efforts towards family reintegration when appropriate.
