Kidcare Shiloh’s Child Development Centre, Ghana

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.

The project currently has 80 children who come to the Centre on weekdays. Currently they attend nursery and early primary learning classes at the Centre. They are fed breakfast and lunch, clothed and looked after from 8 am in the morning until about 4 p.m. Kidcare also engages with the community regularly giving counselling, support and other medical assistance or help needed to the guardians of the children. Kidcare has literally put brand new roofs on a couple of the homes (shacks) that the children live in.
