Social Work in Schools

Our team visit the school of each scholarship recipient to check on their academic performance and well-being during each term. The team visits the homes of our scholarship recipients to see how the family is involved in the children’s lives. The home visits create an opportunity to educate the families on good parenting skills and the importance of having a strong and healthy family system.


Our scholarship recipients are registered under the National Health Insurance Scheme to ensure they have easy access to basic healthcare without limitations. We cover any additional bills associated with using the National Health Insurance Scheme.

Counseling Sessions

Counseling sessions are crucial in every social work practice. We make sometime to explore the difficulties children in street situations encounter with the children themselves and make them understand the need to accept their new environment, be open to change, and develop a stable mind towards their lives. These counseling sessions take place in our Learning Hub, in their schools, in their homes, and through some of our events. Experts in the field are also consulted in special cases. We make the welfare of the child paramount as stated in the Children’s Act.

After School Learning

The Learning Hub runs after school programs for children in the James Town community. The Learning Hub serves 60 children every school day through different sections namely; the library, classroom, play space and craft lab. The library serves 22 children, The classroom meets the needs of 10 children who require assistance with their home assignments and topics they found difficult to understand in class. The craft lab, on the other hand, builds the creativity of eight children at a time, using arts and crafts. The playground employs a play based approach to teach 20 children different subjects in a fun and creative way. Through our partner Right to Play, we have a manual we use to teach the children games that will develop their level of concentration in class in a fun way. The center moreover uses an “out of school curriculum” to teach numeracy, literacy, creativity and life skills.

Mentorship Programs

These programs are meant to empower adolescent girls and boys in street situations to become self-confident, educated, and independent members of the society regardless of their gender and socio-economic background. We aim at bringing adolescent girls and boys and mentors together. Pairing each child with a mentor from diverse professional fields and varying ages enables teenagers to network, discuss common issues of interest, and receive advice on several issues. Mentors guide and advice teenagers in street situations in choosing their careers, handling relationship issues, and help them to overcome general difficulties they may face in their lives. Most mentorship programs do not capture and address the challenges of teenagers in street situations. We believe teenagers in street situations equally need to be groomed to join the inclusive drive towards nation building.Paragraph

Water Sanitation Hygiene (WASH)

To ensure an overall save environment it is imperative to bring children in street situations to understand sanitation issues and its effects on their lives. The basic objective of the WASH project is to educate users of our center, street connected families, and urban poor families on water, sanitation, and hygiene through clean-up exercises, workshops, and recycling campaigns.
