CSC Projects in Ghana
Street Children in Ghana
CSC is committed to supporting the many thousands of street children in Ghana, who face daily violations of their rights to education, healthcare and protection. Endemic poverty in rural areas leads many families to send their children to cities for work, where they are vulnerable to extreme violence, forced into criminal activity, and frequently led towards substance abuse. Lack of access to reproductive health services and HIV education is also a major problem for Ghana’s street children, adding to the social stigma that they experience.

The Legal Atlas: Putting Street Children on the Map
Street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations, overlooked by governments, law and policymakers and many others in society. To address this, CSC and our partner Baker McKenzie created the Legal Atlas, to put information about laws affecting street children directly into their -and their advocates’ – hands.
