Starlight Foundation is a non-governmental organization, with the aim of creating opportunities for street kids to help give them a better life and future. It seeks to do this by looking holistically at the life of the street kid 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 achievement of gender equality.
Access to quality education is one of our key objectives for the street kids 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.
Again, the Foundation focuses on a broad range of men and women’s rights which includes; economic justice, equity, gender discrimination, health, and wellbeing, building credible self-esteem amongst others. Here too, the organization partners with like-minded individuals and institutions to undertake projects which would go a long way in creating a positive impact on the country, Africa and the world at large.
To be an organization whose sole aim is service to mankind and the nation, bring together less privileged youth and children on the streets and in some remote villages to help train, equip them with various skills needed to thrive and succeed as individuals in society.
To build an orphanage with infrastructures where people will be housed and trained to acquire skills which will enable them to support themselves financially.
We hope to roll out a trainer of trainee programme to help build the capacity of other individuals in various fields.
We are hoping to come up with projects and programmes that will directly or indirectly benefit over 10,000 children and their families every year. Some of it will focus on education, healthcare, and women empowerment, in selected remote villages and slums across Ghana.
