Every child, given the opportunity and protection by society, can optimize his/her god-given abilities and grow to lead an independent, responsible adult life.
CRRECENT researches into child related issues. Our work includes studies into:
Children's rights to housing.
Operational research into the situation of orphans and vulnerable children within the Manya and Yilo Krobo districts of the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Child-domestic work in Ghana (collaborative research work with Centre for Policy Studies, a department in the University of Ghana).
We reach out to out-of-school children and drop-out youth. CRRECENT is looking at community based programme that combines literacy and agriculture for disadvantaged youth. An example of such community based programme is the Girl Power Programme that is aimed at empowering girls and young women.
CRRECENT also provides resources in the form of training and capacity building for special governmental organisations like the Police, the Immigration and youth and children organisations. CRRECENT is into documentation (curriculum development for youth training).
