AfriKids Core Projects
Since 2005 AfriKids Ghana has been developing large child rights programmes to address the fundamental challenges facing children in northern Ghana. In their first phase these tended to tackle particularly sensitive issues including the spirit child phenomenon, child labour and child trafficking. In 2009 the lessons learned from these projects were shared and the work scaled up to become three holistic ‘area programmes’ covering five districts in the Upper East Region.
In addition to the three area prorgrammes, AfriKids Ghana also runs smaller stand alone core projects which provide a specific service or meet a specific need. These include the AfriKids Academy and Creative Minds.
