How to Make a Difference in Africa


In northern Ghana, where more than half of all families live in poverty. AfriKids is a force for change: an award-winning organisation helping people take control of their own lives and give their children happier childhoods and brighter futures.

Since 2002, AfriKids has been proving that local people know the challenges their children face better than anyone, and that their ideas for solutions really work. AfriKids’ simple philosophy of listening to local people and empowering them to make sustainable changes themselves has seen unprecedented results. Today, AfriKids is the leading organisation for children in northern Ghana; with projects in education, health and child protection supporting more than 100,000 people every year that are still entirely designed and run by local people, for local people.
