Our vision

The Foundation's vision is Helping to building a society where children and young people are enabled to maximize their potential to achieve an improved quality of life free from exploitation.

What we do

The Foundation offers a variety of comprehensive services through centers located in the city of Accra and Kokrobite fishing community about 45 minutes drive west of Accra. Collaboration within the two communities we serve has enabled us to expand our networks to include support from local authorities, schools and services organizations. Currently the Foundation offers the following community outreach services:  

Youth Training/Resource Centre, consisting of gymnasium, ICT Training Unit, library and accommodation Unit for volunteers at Roman Ridge, Accra. The multipurpose facility provides opportunities for disadvantaged children/youth to improve their talents in the fields of sports, education and ICT skills. The centre is opened to children from under-served  community of Nima - Mamobi in Accra. As a community,Nima/Mamobi is majorly a slum, where almost every house is built of mud. The nature of the community also makes it a densely populated area, as migrants from all parts of Ghana and West Africa; find it a place to start a life in the capital city, Accra Nima/Mamobi therefore has a link to all part of Ghana as most people from outside Accra who ended up in the corridors of power, have link with Nima

Field outreach program at Kokrobite, a small fishing village on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean about 30 km west from Accra; with population of between 8000; predominantly engaged in subsistence fishing with very low incomes.Our field staff are engaged as supplementary teachers  at the local basic school, where they teach  basic English Language and Maths,ICT and sports coaching; as well as assisting the local community clinic in their daily operations.

These programmes are designed to benefit disadvantaged children and youth from impoverished homes (trafficked and neglected children, street children, unskilled out-of-school youth, etc) in Nima/Mamobi and Kokrobite.Community outreach services are offered to youth ages 7-19, whose household income falls within the programme requirements. Through mentorship programmes, assistance is also available to support participants’ families and schools with educational resources and related training.

Bridge Foundation works with disadvantaged children in deprived communities at the grassroots level in various developmental fields. Working with Bridge you can experience the vibrant diversity of the Ghanaian culture while making a difference at the grassroots level. Our activities are designed to bring a sustainable high impact output after completion. Programs are available throughout the year.

Where we work

Ghana is rated as one of Africa's great success stories, reaping the benefits of a stable democracy in the form of fast-paced development.With its welcoming beaches, gorgeous hinterland, rich culture, vibrant cities, diverse wildlife, easy transport and affable inhabitants, it is no wonder Ghana is sometimes labeled 'Africa for beginners'. It is easy to come here for a week or a month, but no trip can be complete without a visit to Ghana's coastal forts, poignant reminders of a page of history that defined our modern world.

What all Ghanaians share are their hospitality and a penchant for socialization, placing them amongst the happiest, most welcoming people on the planet; and positioning Ghana the most idyllic place to volunteer.
