Mission Statement

Africa Youth Rising is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization operating in Dodowa, Ghana dedicated to providing young people and their families the education, healthcare, and resources they need to escape the relentless cycle of poverty and create multi-generational change.

Description

Ultimately, it is our express goal to identify root causes that force families to abandon children to orphanages and disrupt those patterns. We are seeking the elimination of predatory orphanages that are actively harming children for their own gain in favor of stable, self-sustaining families and communities.

This first of its kind free center is a nexus of child protection and women’s empowerment. Adom Fie (Grace House) empowers the mothers of disabled children by giving them the opportunity to seek gainful employment while their child is mindfully tended. The Center also provides essential interventions including daily occupational therapy and child specific assistive devices. The aim is to stabilize families with disabled children thus stopping the high flow of disabled children into orphanages.
We are a duly registered US and Ghana Nonprofit, working with Ghana Health Services, Ghana Education Services, and the Ministry of Gender and Social Protection.
