And our topic is: "The Kayayoo's Child: A square peg in an early education system of round holes"

On June 1st, 2019, We have an amazing opportunity to share in the first TEDx Education in Ghana. Early Childhood Education is vital to building our society... And the vulnerable child of the underprivileged in our society needs more customized attention than our education system offers... Kaya ChildCare is doing something about it. 

Aunty Evelyn Kwofie, our center manager and Early Childhood Director at Kaya ChildCare will be gracing the maiden event to share her exploits in a rare educational setup for children of head porters in Accra. 

Join us there...

On 30th and 31st January, 2016 our core team with help from Nepeti (a fellow faculty at Ashesi University) went to look for and interact with the Madina Kayayoo in their community for the first time. We found about 150 women between ages 15 and 48 and many kids. The women we interacted with were amazing and for the most part willing to answer our questions and show us around. Having to interact with with these ladies, to hear their stories, and see their daily push to keep themselves and their children fed, alive, and sheltered, was beyond anything we had ever experienced.

My sister (Gracelove) and I were driving down the busy market street in Madina, Accra and as usual there were the Kayayoo with their heavy loads and their babies on their backs; working as hard as ever. For the rest of the drive, our conversation somehow turned to focus on those kids and how for many hours in a day, they miss the chance to "just be kids". We agreed that if we could do something sustainable to give-back and help society, it would be to help the Kayayoo give her baby the childhood that every child deserves... 

Fast forward 8 months, and this notice went out: That's when our journey began.
