Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


ABSTRACT This project is about how children between the ages of 12 to 17 years who are found in the urban centers but mainly on the streets of Accra Ghana survive. I will look into group of children (Head pan carriers, normally called Kayayie) who have migrated from the northern part to the southern part of Ghana mostly Accra which is the capital of Ghana, who lives, beg and work on the street. This is to work on children who do not have access to good food like any normal child; they have no place to call a home and so depend on the streets for shelter. They have little or no clothes and the right to education which is a fundamental human right in Ghana can never be talked of these street children. They seemed to be abandoned to their own fate and so tend to all sort means mostly just for food and with hope for a better life which do not exist in the environment they find themselves. The project will look into the factors affecting these children to move into the street and also to bring to bear some of the hash problems these street children face on the street. In the context of child wellbeing the project will look at the importance of the developmental stage of adolescent children who are trying to form their identity so they will build world throughout their life on the street. Approaching this project will mostly be done with the collection of secondary data of scholars’ observation and research, articles, website research and books. Focusing on Hasim and Thorsen and Langevange work on street children in Accra. Data to this project will be gathered from different sources and different authors. (Hasim and Thorsen2011, pg 5), Suggestion to minimize this problem will be the summary of this project. .
