About The African Child Agenda
Who we are
The African Child Agenda has been set up to address the needs of children and families of African decent in the diaspora and those on the African continent. Our first initiative began in Ghana 2021, were we have established a Saturday school for the children whilst we fundraise for the ful-time school to be built.
We currently educate 87 children and have provided them all with a custom made uniform, schoes, bags, pens pencils, workbooks and bags as well as a freshly prepared lunch before they leaver for the day.
Children arrive at 08.00am and leave at 14.00 subjects include
- Financial literacy
The children are broken up into classes where each child is in a work group no larger than 4-1. This allows us to easily offer each child the support they need, and quickly identify any additional learning or behavioral needs.
All teaching staff currently work in the private school sector in Ghana, and work with us at the weekends, once the main school is built, they will be employed full time. We have engaged with experienced teachers and retired head teachers from the diaspora who are also entheuastic about the new school, and have already offered a forward thinking bespoke curicculum.
The African Child Agenda will be supported by
The Black Child Agenda UK who have a long standing history of delivering solutions to children and their families througout the UK. The #unapologetic approach delivered has alloowed the organisation international recgonition for their work, along with a multitude of awards. Giving children and their families peace of mind when attending any establishment is paramount, we know that once children have access to the right opportunities they will thrive in the global marketplace.
Being able to offer children and young people a well rounded education, without the issues they face in the UK is important, we are focused and committed to gifting children with practical skills and knowledge via our Pan-African curricculum which will empower children in the areas of –

VOLUNTEER WITH US in the future
Many countries around the world have adopted the practice of summer camps. This is a specially created community where children are given the chance to be around new people and learn new things in an environment that they are not exposed to on a daily basis. It is a wonderful way to keep children occupied in a way that helps them continue learning during the summer holidays.
We will expose children to the gret African traditions, and culture, bring them to some of the amazing places in Africa, teach them about local customs and practices.
Working at our summer residential camp is rewarding on so many levels:
- Working with children
- Working in a close knit team
- Be part of the community
- Build children’s confidence
Traditional overnight camps create a “third space” for children to learn valuable life skills in different ways than they do at home or school. Going to camp offers children needed time away from family and regular friend groups.
