We’ve been working in Ghana since 1999 to support street-connected children and children experiencing disabilities. For pregnant women and young mothers who are in vulnerable situations, we create safe spaces, empower them with business training and provide a nurturing environment for their children. Children experiencing disabilities too often miss out on essential early childhood development, so we’re working to make these early childhood development services more inclusive for all children.

In Ghana’s greater Accra region, we have enrolled 600 out-of-school children by making sure that the local education system is set up to meet their unique needs.
Working alongside the Ghana Education Service and the Ghanaian Government’s Special Education Division, we’ve developed a refresher teacher training manual. The manual helps teachers to identify children with developmental delays and disabilities so that these children get an equal chance to get into education and thrive.
The project is currently active in ten schools and has the potential to be rolled out nationwide.
In 2021, we supported over 7,000 children with disabilities and trained over 100 teachers to provide inclusive education in the classroom
