Awia Inclusive Community Project
Awia means Sun in the Twi language. Awia Inclusive Community Project (AICP) is a not-for-profit organization that aims to carry out socio-educational and development projects on a community basis, in order to provide for the improvement of the quality of life for less privileged minors and for minors with disabilities and their families not only thanks to satisfy basic needs but guaranteeing inclusion and participation in community life.
Through international support we work with the local communities and the Social Welfare Department to provide children the opportunity to reach their full potential and social inclusion, raising awareness about the importance of learning and schooling, educating about a different vision of disability in order to produce a change in the perception of disability and handicap within the families and the communities.
