Got this from Nana Yaw who runs Revelations Children’s Home Ghana, the orphanage we visit and support:
… the social welfare in Ghana is in big trouble a journalist has expose big corruption at the national children home,child abuse prostitution of teen girls etc.this has compel the gov to issue a statement that both private and national homes should embark on integration exercise to re locate kids to their extended families and still support them if the families can not fully support them.
So abuse of looked after kids is everywhere. But now we don’t know the future of the kids in Sekyere, many of them don’t have family to go to. What would the High school kids do in the holidays? They would be homeless all over again.
This is the link to our blog pages while we were there in 2007 and 2009:
