There are more than 65,000 children and youth living on the streets of Accra, Ghana. These children are victims of family abandonment, poverty, violence and mistreatment. Exposed to sexual exploitation, they are often at risk to sexually transmitted diseases and infections. They currently lack access to healthcare, shelter, clothing, healthy meals and positive adult influences.
On this first-time mission to Accra, we are partnering with Future of Africa as they provide literacy programs, meals, and mentorship for more than 100 at-risk youth in the region. We will walk alongside them in prayer for vision and breakthrough, as well as for a new school and community center to provide a safe space for the children and offer more programs. We will also explore International Justice Mission to learn more about their current projects to end and prevent child abuse in Ghana. If you have a heart for social justice, education, and showing God’s love, we invite you to join us as we fight for the causes of the children as they are the future and have the potential to transform the nation of Ghana through their circles of influence.
Leaders: Stacy Jeffries, David Collier and Elsie Hayford
