Who we are and what we do

Australian Sponsorship for African Kids, located in Adelaide, is a charitable foundation dedicated to supporting African kids by financially supporting Nana’s House, a day centre in Chorkor, Ghana that is administered and staffed by NGO BASICS International. Without Nana’s House, children would be on the streets and the beaches unable to escape the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, child labour, and teenage pregnancy. Also, for many of the 100 children that visit daily, this is the only opportunity to have a hot nutritional meal.

With the education, health training and skills training they receive at Nana’s House, before and after school, they are able to turn their lives around. They receive assistance with their homework and private tutoring. They also participate in extracurricular activities including computer training, sewing, music and dance, cooking, art, poetry, sports, drama and filmmaking.

A message from the Chair

Welcome to the AS4AK website. You will find interesting information about the organisation, its governance and its activities here. Since its formation in March 2007, I am pleased that the charity continues to fulfill its goal of raising money for underprivileged African children.

 

Our primary purpose is providing financial support to Nana’s House, a day centre in Chorkor, Ghana that is administered and staffed by NGO BASICS International. Without Nana’s House, children would be on the streets and the beaches unable to escape the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, child labour, and teenage pregnancy. Also, for many of the 100 children that visit daily, this is the only opportunity to have a hot nutritional meal.

 

With the education, health training and skills training they receive at Nana’s House, before and after school, they are able to turn their lives around. They receive assistance with their homework and private tutoring. They also participate in extracurricular activities including computer training, sewing, music and dance, cooking, art, poetry, sports, drama and filmmaking.

 

AS4AK does not have any overheads or operational costs, apart from the unavoidable bank fees and insurance premiums. The Board members all volunteer our time and services. So, it is most gratifying that every dollar raised is applied directly for the benefit of the children at Nana’s House.

 

Our fundraising activities include an annual film night, but we are fortunate to receive generous donations from corporate sponsors. If you are interested in being a sponsor or donating, please contact us.

I look forward to your continued support in 2022 and beyond.

Providing safe education space for kids

BASICS  is a safe haven Day Centre based at Chorkor, a poor, deprived suburb in Accra, for children in the surrounding fishing communities where schooling and teenage pregnancies are a problem and increase daily due to poverty and ignorance. The children attending the Centre range in age from 6 to 24 years. 
At least 100 children visit the safe haven each day for assistance with their homework and for private tutoring.  They also participate in extracurricular activities including computer training, sewing, music and dance, cooking, art, poetry, sports, drama andfilmmakingg among other activities. 
The house itself (that our past fundraising has helped to build) is a three-storey facility comprising a computer lab, a sewing room, home economics and catering kitchen, a library and more recently a music studio.

FUNDRAISING

for better future

One of the main reasons Australian Sponsorship for African Kids was founded was to fundraise money to support an initiative such as Nana House, a multi-function education facility and the associated provision of a before and after school academic and vocational program, in the poor fishing village of Chorkor, Accra in Ghana. 
From time to time AS4AK holds fundraising activities.  These include:
Film Nights, Garden Visits, Dinners and other fundraising activities. If you are interested in fundraising please contact us by the contact detail below.
