Help us educate children in Ghana and build a Learning Centre, We help children break out of the poverty cycle through quality education.
Children of the Light (founded by a kiwi) is a charity based in Ghana, West Africa. We have a passion for helping African children break out of the poverty cycle through quality education. We also care about the environment.
We are raising funds to complete a Learning Centre and grounds in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The will allow more children to enjoy what the centre has to offer and also be used as a headquarters to branch out to more children.
We run on-going classes plus year-round educational/environmental programs in Ghana, for children aged 4 to 16 years. We also go on regular visits to the children living on the streets of Accra. This includes a healthy meal, story time and a chance for the children to draw and write.
We rely on donations to achieve our goal of impacting children in Ghana through the transforming power of education.
Ways you can Help:
- Donate towards our monthly operations, programs, and our building and landscaping project
- Donate towards up-grading the primary vehicle or purchasing a bus
- Sponsor a child for one-on-one tutoring or sponsor a visit to the street children which includes a healthy meal

More about us
Children of the Light (CotL), is a registered Charitable Organization in Ghana and in New Zealand. The organisation has been in operation in Ghana, W/Africa since 2005.
The mission of CotL is to impact young lives by providing creative, holistic, child-centred education in order to build lives that influence society.
In addition to academics, the children are assisted in their emotional, social and physical growth. Six days a week, children enjoy a lively educational experience which is conducted in a safe and non-threatening environment. Furthermore, throughout the year, the children participate in several exciting programs which broaden their scope of the world.
We seek to make education an enjoyable and life changing experience, as we believe strongly that education is a vital component to enabling children to reach their full potential.
