The Kayayei Association is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2009 by a colleague and myself that provides on-going relief and support to women and children living on the streets of Accra, Ghana.
Over 500 women and children have been provided with lifetime health care coverage, more than 150 children have received education, thousands of women and children have received medical treatment, 75 women have received vocational training and have left the field of prostitution, and others have been provided housing to protect them from frequent rape and rampant crime that accompanies a life on the streets of the third world.
