An organisation set up by a Global Youth Ambassador has also been giving clothes, food and drink to street children in Ghana.

Puerile Africa is a charitable organisation in Ghana that works with orphanages, schools and hospitals influencing society through the empowerment of children. 

We spend time with children in hospitals and orphanages helping them make up the time lost not being able to attend school and we mentor the children. I am founder of the organisation.

We worked in collaboration with Towah Foundation and organised a clothing project for street children. This project was done at Chorkor in the Greater Accra Region. 

As part of their social responsibility, Puerile Africa and Towah Foundation donated clothes and gave out foods and drinks to street children.
