March 13th to April 14th

The Osu Children’s Home is an orphanage located in the downtown Osu area of Accra Ghana. This orphanage is home, school and life to approximately 280 children ranging from ages 0 to 23. There are approximately 200 boys and 80 girls residing in the compound consisting of 5 units. Unfortunately, the children residing here are victims of abuse and abandonment. The facility strives to provide primary education, shelter, food and recreational activities, however funding for the organization is scarce and does not support the ever growing population. To give you a little summary, the Ghanaian government provides funding and space for only 150 children but almost DOUBLE live off of the funding and use the space!! Please keep this in mind when you go through your closet!! Imagine, living off  half a shirt, half a book, half a meal and half a bed. We here in Canada are so fortunate to have government support and an abundance of opportunities when living below or at poverty line.


On March 13th to April 13th, please donate your used clothing to a good cause.

These are the types of things you can donate:
1. CLOTHES!!! please keep in mind that the clothes don’t necessarily have to be BRAND new or in mint condition.. but it has to be wear-able and preferably pre washed..
