Akwaaba! Welcome! Bienvenue!
Childhood is defined very differently in Africa-Ghana. Children grow out of their childhood very quickly and some will never have the chance of experiencing ‘childhood’. Whether they live on the streets or they have to work to support their families, children have little time to rest, play or learn. DUNK- Standing for Developing Unity Nurturing Knowledge gives the children from Nima and Jamestown; two of the most deprived communities, an opportunity to play, learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment using sports as a hook. Join our great mission – donate to our program or work as a volunteer in Ghana or from all over the world!
“DUNK standing for Developing Unity, Nurturing Knowledge, is a youth-led, community-based organization. Our mission is to provide/create safe spaces for children aged 8-19years living in deprived communities to PLAY, LEARN & GROW. Through our programs such as Sports, Academic Development and Personal Development; DUNK! empowers its members to succeed ON and OFF the playground so they become agents of change in their respective communities.
