Who We Are
Starlight Foundation is a non-governmental organization, with the aim of creating opportunities for street-connected children to help give them a better life and future. It seeks to do this by looking holistically at the life of the street-connected child and addressing as many concerns as possible. These include: fight for the rights of individuals on the streets, particularly the girl child and those found in some remote areas of the country, and also fight against sex objectification culture. We also work towards eliminating all forms of discrimination against women, women empowerment, and the achievement of gender equality.
Access to quality education is one of our key objectives for the street-connected children which we do in partnership with some reputable and reliable institutions. Those interested in learning a trade or vocation are not left out of the equation taking into account their age.
The Foundation also provides public education on streetism to help create awareness on the dangers of streetism and to provide a better means of ending the problem in Ghana.
