Chance for Childhood is an award-winning charity working in Africa to support the most vulnerable children, such as street children, disabled children, children affected by conflict and kids behind bars.

These children are often invisible members of their communities, unable to go to school, excluded from society and living in abject poverty. They are sadly forced to grow up much too quickly…

What makes us special?

We work with visionary community leaders who best understand their local context. This enables us to focus on ‘hard to reach’ children, both in terms of their complex needs (e.g. street children with learning difficulties) and location (e.g. Accra’s most violent neighbourhood or rural Rwanda).

Instead of providing a ‘one fits all’ solution, we believe that the only way to break the vicious cycle of poverty and exclusion is through an approach tailored to the unique needs of each child. We tackle the root causes and work with the child, their family and the wider community to create lasting change.

Our vision is of a world where no child is forgotten!
