OrphanAid Africa (OA) is a non-profit organization developing programs and projects to help vulnerable children and their families in Ghana, West Africa.
The organization was originally founded as a local NGO in Ghana in 2002 and progressively grew internationally with registered branches in the United States where it is a 501 c3 non-profit, as well as France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. The common goal of these branches is to rescue vulnerable children in need of care and to trace and reunify children with their families. These children are often separated from their families by poverty, the HIV/AIDs epidemic and the increase of rural–to-urban migration.
OrphanAid Africa depends on the generous donations of individuals and businesses, as well as volunteers and partners, to help us carry out our work.
OrphanAid Africa’s aim is to support orphans and vulnerable children in Ghana through programs in Care Reform, family support, education, and development. Our goal is to ensure that children grow up in safe and permanent family settings with appropriate care and protection. OA is an implementing partner in the Government of Ghana National Plan of Action for Orphans and Vulnerable Children.
