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...
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.
