OAfrica is a nonprofit and non-governmental organization developing programs to empower children and young adults in need of care and protection due of institutionalization and abandonment to become productive members of the community.
In Ghana, thousands of children live in orphanages, but these institutions are not safe places and can seriously impact the development of children and expose them to all forms of abuse, mistreatment, exploitation and even trafficking. More than 80% of institutionalized children have living relatives: child abandonment is a humanitarian emergency, of which the leading cause is poverty.
This is why we endeavour to create a world without orphanages, where children can grow up in safe, permanent family settings with appropriate care and protection, with equal rights and opportunities. We accomplish this by removing children from orphanages and instead focus on strengthening families so they can care for their own children. We also empower young people so they can create independent families. Every day, we reach thousands of children and youth, improving their lives thanks to a holistic approach which involves families and communities in order to break the vicious cycle of poverty and address their marginalization and lack of education to ultimately create real economic, cultural and social change.
