The aim of this new project is to provide a family and children’s centre for the poor and deprived children and families within that specific community. The area in which this project is situated is called Gbetsile in Ghana, near Michel Camp in the Tema district of the greater Accra region, near the capital.
Most people in this area are uneducated and very poor. Nearly all the parents Kidcare is currently working with are single mothers and squatters living in people’s uncompleted buildings. A lot of the children are orphans being looked after by guardians, poor old grandparents and simply women who are very poor.
