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

- Sponsor a child for one-on-one tutoring or sponsor a visit to the street children which includes a healthy meal

Poverty is not easy. But poverty without a home and a family is the hardest. Street children are the most vulnerable ones. Thank you so much to support education of children and to give a token of hope and bring a smile to the children in the streets in Ghana. God keep blessing you for that!
