Charity information


AfriKids believes in the rights of all children, everywhere and that they should be valued, protected and met by all.

We exist to make this the reality for children in northern Ghana, where more than half of all families live in poverty and need our support to give their children the protection, health & education they need to escape poverty for good.

Our work is entirely led by local staff with a simple approach of listening to their communities & empowering them to make sustainable changes.

Founded 2002
