What we stand for
Children are voiceless and they are particularly vulnerable in the formative stages of life. They do not constitute a force to lobby and advocate by themselves for effective delivery of socio-economic services that address their rights and needs. They need people who, together with them, can speak and draw the nation’s attention to their plight, people who are passionate about their issues.
Who we are
Yen Daakye (literally translated as “our future”in Akan-Twi) Movement is an effort by people who heartily advocate for the interests of children. It is an effort by Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians who wish to bring about a change in the lives of children in Ghana for a better future. The Movement advocates for a total attitude change in the way children are treated and perceived in Ghana by constantly bringing to the open issues affecting their total development. The movement gathers facts on their existing plight in the country and advocates for a better future for our children, at all levels – in the home, in the community, at school, right up to the national level.
Theme for the next year:
Quality education: The role of the state, community, school and the home.
Inviting you to stand up for Ghanaian children
We want to mobilise a critical mass of people who are concerned about children to focus on specific attitudes towards children and get Ghana to stand up for its children. We invite you to join us.
