Nurture Children's Growth
Food programme for school in Accra and Kete-Krachi
The population of Ghana is around 28 million - almost 40% of people (11.5million) are children under the age of 15, making Ghana a young nation. Around 27,000 Ghanaian children are living with HIV and more than 150,000 kids were orphaned due to AIDS. Additionally, it is estimated that 1.1 million children have lost either one or both of their parents. In Accra, the capital of Ghana, thousands of young children live in slums and on the streets. Their lives consist of begging for money, selling merchandise and sadly also engaging in crimes. Most of them are child labourers who do not go to school, therefore 7 in 10 Ghanaian street children are illiterate. Our food program supports local organizations, schools, shelters and orphanages, in Accra and Kete Krachi in Ghana.
