We are registered Grassroots Non-profit charity who put our resources into helping disadvantaged girls, women and children acquire education, health, opportunities and economic independence..
The Unique Light Foundation (charity registration number CG09854214) is a grassroots organization located in Breku-Kasoa, in the central region of Ghana. We provide high quality inclusive education to underprivileged children through our partner schools. This includes children with visual impairments from poor communities, ensuring that every child, no matter their poverty, gets the best options in life. We help to eliminate avoidable blindness in schools and deprived areas, and strive to encourage girl’s education regardless of their backgrounds and abilities.
We organize health clinics to screen people and provide suspected people with risk health issues with first aids and referral . We teach youth employable skills, financial management and good record keeping of their businesses. We educate girls about adolescent reproductive health, teenage pregnancy and effective transition into adulthood.
We strongly believe that every child, regardless of situation, health or location, should receive a high quality education, exciting future prospects and unlimited love and care. Children should be brought up with parents, whether biological or adopted, to ensure that they receive the kind of love, care and affection that only parents can truly provide.
The Unique Light Foundation believes that every single child on this earth deserves a chance to prosper in life, regardless of their background or disabilities. All children have the potential to become kind, successful adults, but poverty, a lack of education, and ignorance in society have lead to privatization, resulting in underprivileged children getting left behind. One of our main goals is to educate as many children as we can, especially those who are marginalized, deprived or rejected.
We provide a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves. We are the voice for children and teenage girls, children with visual impairments and young mothers. We support and provide an inclusive education against segregation, discrimination or exclusion. Children with visual impairments should be educated with their peers in a positive school environment. We believe that governments and institutions should provide all the necessary equipment, books, materials and technologies to children with visual impairments, and recognize that every child with a disability deserves to be treated equal.
