Future stars orphanage home

Organization Description: 

Introduction In our project area number of Orphan, Semi Orphan and Street Children are found. The problem of orphan / street children is acute due to urbanization and industrialization. Due to the deaths of HIV/AIDS affected persons, Re-marriage of deserted / widowed / divorce. Homeless and impoverished orphans in Ghana are in need of care and education. When no relative is able to care for a child, they are forced to live on the street and for that child, all hope is lost. Life is hard enough for a child in Ghana, but with no one to care for them; they are the poorest of the poor. Poverty in childhood is a root cause of poverty in adulthood. Impoverished children often grow up to be impoverished parents who in turn bring up their own children in poverty. In order to break the generational cycle, poverty reduction must begin with children.

VISION Our vision is nothing less than becoming the driving force in education, health and realizing the full potentials of children and youth and their right to protection and development.
