Summary

We look for the most vulnerable children on the streets of Ashaiman, Tema and Accra, who are willing to seize the chance for a better life. We provide them with temporary shelter away from the streets; where they can build trust and make friends. We prepare the children for school life as well as we support them during their course of education. We give our best to build individual opportunities of reintegration into family and society.

Challenge

Many people from rural Ghana have come to live and settle in Ashaiman due to its proximity to major Cities in the capital; Accra and Tema. They are mostly engaged in very low paying jobs such as truck pushing, dish washing etc. Their children, sometimes out of the situation are forced to engage in certain form of economic activity to support their parents/guardians. Some of the children end up sleeping on the street in front of shops; and exposed to prostitution, pregnancy and drugs.

Solution

Rays of Hope provides hope to these children by rescuing them from the street and giving them access to education. We counsel and encourage their parents/guardians on the significance of education and proper child care. We provide temporary shelter at our Centre in Dodowa-Ayikuma, Welfare, Empowerment and Mobility Centre (WEM) for children found living on the street after the necessary formal processes have been carried out.

Long-Term Impact

The project will enable 100 vulnerable and marginalised children have an uninterrupted and continuous access to education by making their parents/guardians understand the significance of education on their children's development.
