To support AfriKids Ghana ("AfriKids Ghana"), a charity registered in Ghana (Ghana Registered Charity Number: DSW/3024) that works towards alleviating child suffering and poverty.
AfriKids is an award-winning child rights organisation helping communities in Ghana keep children healthy, safe & in school, so that they can break the cycle of poverty, for good.
Friends of AfriKids, Inc (FoA) was registered in the United States in 2011 in order to leverage transformational support for the work of AfriKids, through donations from individuals, companies and grants in the USA. We are 501(c)(3) registered so US taxpayers can claim tax relief on their donation, and an active bank account is in place to accept donations.
Friends of AfriKids, Inc. works in partnership with AfriKids UK and AfriKids Ghana, two separately registered organizations with different management teams and boards of Directors. AfriKids Ghana, based in Bolgatanga, northern Ghana, was registered in 2005 and its development has been supported by AfriKids UK, which was registered in 2002 and is based in London.
AfriKids is now moving into a critical phase of development, building on the success and insight of the last twenty years to bring health and happiness to Ghana’s most vulnerable families. This includes a visionary new district level approach, the formation of world-leading impact measurement systems, a sustainability and advocacy strategy to encourage replication of our model in order to reach 1 million people by 2025, and a refined fundraising strategy to diversify our income, including fundraising in the US, so we can achieve our ambitious goals.
