The Universal Wonderful Street Academy is a registered non profit organization created to take care of children living in the streets of Accra, the capital city of Ghana.
Established in 2012 by Louis Yeboah Womder Doe, an artist from Ghana known as LOUIS WONDER, it 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.
The Organization runs a non-formal school from 7.30am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday for children aged 6 to 16 years. The children are taken through a varied curriculum and prepared to go to formal school where they are supported to further their education. Preservation of traditional arts is made by the learning of traditional African dances and music.
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). Founder: Beatriz García. Secretary: Marta Lorenzo.Treasurer: Mireia García.
OUR VALUES: We believe in values such as collectivism, dignity,

OUR OBJECTIVES: Work to improve the living conditions of street children in Accra by providing:
