About Us

AfriKids is a partnership between a UK charity (AfriKids UK), and a Ghanaian Non-Governmental Organisation (AfriKids Ghana), working together to protect and promote child rights in northern Ghana.

Our mission is:

To ensure that every child under the age of 21 in Ghana is afforded his/her rights as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and to do this by building the capacity and resources of local people, organisations and initiatives in such a way that they will be able to continue their efforts independently and sustainably in the future.

Our philosophy is to:

LISTEN to what the community knows it needs
EMPOWER them to make the necessary changes themselves
Ensure absolute SUSTAINability

What sets us apart is:

Our integrated, holistic solutions

Working with everyone it takes, across all of the issues involved
Our geographical focus
Making real and relevant investments in one region for fundamental and lasting change

Our local ownership
Supporting solutions designed and delivered by people who faced the challenges themselves
Our exit strategy 

Providing a temporary helping hand when it's needed, never promoting dependence, to the point that we are working to make AfriKids UK redundant.
