Empowering deprived children in communities in Ghana

Abofra means child. At Abofra Foundation, we believe that every child in Ghana must have easy access to a free computer education, especially the deprived child.


Volunteering Activities


What We Need

Requirements:
- Volunteers must be at least 17 years or older
- No specific skills are required; however, flexibility and patience are very important as you will be working with children of different ages and levels of ability.
- A background or some knowledge of performing arts is an asset for this project - whether in dance, drama, or music.
- You should keep a flexible attitude towards working in a new, multi-cultural environment.

We have two major programs: Free Abofra Computer Training and Community Outreach Program.

1. Free Abofra Computer Training
Our Vision:
* To promote computer training and education
* Increase youth access to computer knowledge

Currently, we partner with a few deprived Government schools in order to teach individuals how to better use technology. We also teach using laptops in deprived communities.

2. Community Outreach Program

We occasionally visit disadvantaged communities and towns to provide a full range of human, educational, and community development services. These services focus on child disability care, sanitation, education, food donation, and more.

When we visit these communities, we meet with their chiefs or elders in order to learn about the current challenges they face in relation to deprived children. We then return back to the office to brainstorm possible solutions. After, we arrange a day to present the results to the disadvantaged community.

The name Abofra means a child in the Akan (Twi) language in Ghana. We chose this name because children are the hope and future leaders of every town, community, country, and nation. So the well-being of children is our greatest concern.

Initially, with the support from family and friends, we saw to the start of the Abofra Foundation. Kwasi Ampadu and his team are determined to see that every child in Ghana has access to basic needs: good health, clean drinking water, education, etc. The early activities of any child are very important since they will determine the future of the child. We believe in the total development of children through activities focusing on health, education, and support. Engaging vulnerable children in these activities will lead to the development of the entire community.

Mission: To promote holistic human transformation, human dignity, and integrated development programs that focus on children.

Vision: To help create a better future for the children in our communities through computer training, health care, and support for vulnerable children.

Goal: To see developed and empowered children.
