Youth

Path to Independence

With Chance for Children’s support, the adolescents in our homes who complete their compulsory school education can pursue further education or professional training (apprenticeship). They relocate to shared apartments or dormitories and receive follow-up visits by our social workers, who accompany them on the last steps towards their independence. The goal is for them to live independently upon completing their training or further education.

Our results in 2020*

  • 10 youth lived together in an apartment

  • 7 youth attended an apprenticeship

  • 2 attended Senior High School

  • 1 youth is working and preparing for further education

CFC’s work has been impacted by the measures the Ghanaian government introduced to contain COVID-19. Our street workers had to cease their activities and the drop-in center was closed between March and September 2020.

CFC instantly responded with a customized approach to this complex situation in-line with official advice and without jeopardizing children’s safety.

The 2020 results reflect these unprecedented times in scale, impact and the restriction of our activities.
