The Universal Wonderful Street Academy is a non profit organization created to take care of children living in the streets of Accra, the capital city of Ghana.
It was established in November 2012 by Louis Yeboah Womder Doe, an artist from Ghana known as LOUIS WONDER, very much aware of the importance of education and strongly committed to eradicate extreme poverty and improve the living conditions of the street children in his city.
The Universal Wonderful Street Academy aims to take the children off the streets and into a classroom where they can be educated and fed with one meal a day at no cost.
Initially established with the financial support of some Spanish friends, it is currently being supported by people from all over the world with private monthly contributions (members & sponsors), sporadic donations, contributions of volunteers and fundraising events held both in Ghana and in Europe.
OUR VALUES: We believe in African values such as collectivism, honor, dignity, solidarity, communal life, cooperation, harmony.
OUR METHOD: Non-bureaucratic, simple, direct and efficient support to street children. All the funds raised in Spain go directly to support the school in Ghana each month.
OUR OBJECTIVES: Work to improve the living conditions of 100 street children by providing:
1. FREE BASIC EDUCATION, eventually to facilitate them access to formal education or vocational training school.
2. A NUTRITIONALLY COMPLETE BALANCED DAILY MEAL for each child.
3. MEDICAL ASSISTANCE when is needed.
The Organization runs a non-formal school from 7.30am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday for children aged 6 to 16 years. In the school the children learn Maths, Science and how to write and read English. They also perform activities related to their own culture such as African drumming&dancing and create their own African Arts & Crafts.
In order to ensure a steady income and give continuity to the Project the Universal Wonderful Street Academy has also been formaly registered in the Andalucian Registry of Associations (Spain) under the number 5.536, section 1 and CIF: G04769105 with base in Mojácar (Almería).
FUTURE: To build a Center where the children can stay in offering a secure and structured enviroment where they can learn and develop better since at present they go back to the street after school hours.
WE BELIEVE THAT ONLY THROUGH EDUCATION WE CAN GIVE A CHANCE TO SOME OF THESE CHILDREN!
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!
