Unfortunately our road safety issues does not end with the drivers – pedestrians seem to have some false sense of invincibility which simply becomes a fleeting act of folly when metal to flesh impact is actually made!

4,500 children living in orphanages in Ghana

80 percent of these children have families 148 orphanages operating in Ghana

9 of these orphanages are registered and regulated OrphanAid Africa has been supporting orphans & vulnerable children in Ghana for the last 12 years. We are not an orphanage. We rescue children & combat child abandonment by supporting safe, stable & loving families. Most children in orphanages are not in fact orphans. At least 4 out of 5 of these children have one or both parents alive. Unfortunately, poor families often feel that placing their children into orphanages is the only way to ensure they receive proper education, food & other essentials. We do not agree. With the right kind of support, most families can keep their children. Be a part of a better solution by helping us keep vulnerable families together.
