WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Our Key Service Areas
Street outreach is carried out throughout the week within Kumasi. Children in street situation are educated on various topics to help them consider some other options rather than being on the street.
Family re-integration is of priority to Street Children Project. Family is the primary institution where children are nurtured and socialized to responsible adults. Their re-integration to a permanent home with their family is critical to their well-being.
We envision that children live, grow and are cared for within their home. In accordance with this vision all our services are geared towards getting children out of the streets into development ventures.
Sponsorship in Education/Skilltraining
The primary aim of all we do for children in street situation is to empower them towards economic independence so they can earn their living through dignified labour and realise their potentials.
Street Children Project came into existence as a response to a social problem and a felt need of the Ghanian society. In the early 2000, the Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi noted an alarming population of children in the city of Kumasi without guardian or parental care. In 2005 Street Children Project was launched by the Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi to address the needs of vulnerable children who live on the streets of Kumasi.

SCP Statement on COVID-19
It is more than one week since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, the number of cases continues to soar around the world. Hundreds of millions of children are not in school. Borders have been closed, lives have been upended. As the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak across the world increases every day we know it is a very worrying time for everyone. We at Street Children Project Catholic Archdiocese of Kumasi want to reassure you that as a charity we're doing our best to adapt to new and complex situations without losing sight of our role in keeping some of the world's most vulnerable children safe.
We are quickly responding to fast-moving situations and will continue to do whatever we can in line with official advice. The Day Care Centre has been closed, events and meetings have been postponed and some approaches on our work have been changed.
Now more than ever, we count on you donors to continue supporting our mission for those with nothing and no one- despite these difficult times. We won't stop working to reach and protect the children that you have been so generously supporting. Together we can still keep them safe.

Relief Programme-covid 19
Since the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, many countries have adopted restrictive measures including orders to self-isolate at home, curfews, quarantines and lockdowns. As the number of cases in Ghana is still rising the President of Ghana has ordered the lockdown of three cities and two townships to control the spread of COVID-19 in the country. One of these cities includes Kumasi. Despite the lockdown there is still much we can do for the most vulnerable in the society. Will you stand with us?
Warm greetings from Street Children Project as 2019 is gradually coming to an end and we are entering the festive season. This is always a good time to take the opportunity to pause and reflect on important things around us. It is a time we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year...
