AfriKids is a Child Rights organisation working to improve life for Ghana’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

We listen to what the community knows it needs. We empower them to make the necessary changes themselves and ensure absolute sustainability

Our work ranges from the more traditional children’s projects including foster homes, schools and street child centres to groundbreaking initiatives which tackle complex cultural issues including child trafficking and child labour.


While children are at the heart of all we do, we take a holistic approach and support all those surrounding our beneficiaries – this includes microfinance support for mothers and working with school and community leaders at all levels.

Shalotte, pictured here, is one of Alaama’s daughters who attends the Grace Preparatory School, set up by AfriKids. AfriKids runs 17 projects in Ghana, all designed to benefit children, both directly and indirectly. Now that Alaama is financially independent, she is able to give Shalotte the opportunity to learn.
