Bread of Life International donated $3000 to Future of Africa (FOA) that will help the organization provide 3000 free hot meals to street children and homeless children for over a period of four months. The donation will allow FOA to reach out to more to street children and homeless children. In addition, this will allow FOA to connect more with children and youth in the streets, so they can establish a meaningful conversation and to build a long-lasting relationship with children in street.
At Bread of Life International, we understand that lack of access to sufficient food is truly devastating to children, families, and entire community. Hunger means less productive children and individuals, that can’t function and perform their daily activities, contribute effectively to their family, community and country as a whole. It also means people are more prone to disease and thus often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods.
This donation to Future of Africa is part of a broader charitable contribution that Bread of Life International has pledged to nonprofit partners, exemplifying Bread of Life International longstanding commitment to supporting and providing food to children, families and communities across Africa experiencing hunger, food crises or extreme hardship and unable to feed themselves.

Agbogbloshie is one of the biggest markets in the Central District of Accra, Ghana. The market is surrounded by slums and many of the inhabitants are women and their families that migrated from the North of Ghana in search of employment. Many of these women, who are mostly youth engage in manual labor trade by working in the markets carrying heavy loads of goods to and from the markets on large pans on their heads for people and businesses that come to the market to buy and sell their goods and products.
Many of these women, who are mostly youth engage in manual labor trade by working in the markets carrying heavy loads of goods to and from the markets on large pans on their heads for people for small fee. The Ghanaian term for a female porter or bearer is known as Kayayei or Kaya Yei
These women often work in poor conditions and toil in the market for many hours with minimal income. Given the meagre amount of money they earn carrying these heavy loads on their heads, the women are unable to rent apartments in Accra (capitol city). They can’t afford a decent meal a day for themselves and to feed their families including their children. You find many of the women and their children sleeping in the streets of the capital. Some of the women get pregnant and can’t afford to look after their children and the children also end up in the streets
Bread of Life International through its flagship Community Event Program, collaborated with SOS Children’s Village, a non-governmental organization focus on supporting children without parental care to reach out to that impoverished community to provide food to the women, their children and families.
Bread of Life International provided free hot meals, drinks, and bags of water to over 1000 children, head potters, and their families. The event was special because it occurred during the Christmas holidays, a public festivity where most people in the country were celebrating the Christmas Holiday’s and many of these women do not have enough money to buy food and gifts for their children and families.
This event was made possible by generous gifts by individuals, donors, and sponsors that contributed to Bread of Life International Community Event Program. There are many communities that we will like to reach out to and expand on our program. You can join us in the fight to eliminate hunger. Select this link: https://breadoflifeint.org/donate/
