AfriKids: Providing young women in Ghana with opportunities in teaching and nursing

AfriKids was one of the first investments made through our Skills Development Fund.

Established in 2002 with a mission to protect and promote child rights in one of the most deprived areas of Ghana, their work includes investing in the skills and employment of young women to help lift their communities out of poverty and provide opportunities for the next generation that don’t rely on aid.

The funding they're receiving will help them to provide training loans and mentoring support for 20 young women in teaching and nursing in Ghana. The loan repayments then support more women into the programme, creating a sustainable funding model.
