Empowering women and children
KIDS FOUNDATION GHANA
INTERVENTION: Children at Risk
Children At Risk
A society which neglects its children is like a tree with dead roots. In our society, like that of many in the third world, rarely are there structures which encourage the healthy growth of the future of the nation.
One difference between the developed and the developing nations is the way children’s issues are addressed. Deprivation of children means deprivation of society as the whole in future years.
Economics in the developing world will become stronger once we address the needs of children and the family. This means that attitudes towards children should be changed.
At Kids Foundation, we focus on children at risk. We get young people to define their needs and contribute to program planning.
We want to meet the goals of “A World Fit for Children,” and the Millennium Development Goals.
