Awia means Sun in the Twi language of Ghana. 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, not only thanks to the satisfaction of basic needs but ensuring inclusion and participation in community life.

Through international support we work with the local communities and the Social Welfare Department of Ghana 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.

Our Story

Born from the idea and professional experience of an Italian volunteer residing in Ghana and from the collaboration of Ghanaian friends, AICP becomes an association in 2021 thanks to a small group of committed volunteers and has been recognized as an NGO since 2023; we are now developing inclusive education projects in Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest city, and in the Volta region, one of the poorest in the country, to support the less privileged children, many of whom have some kind of disability.


The mission of AICP is to implement socio-educational and development projects according to the method called Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) promoted by the WHO, rooted in the concept of inclusive development on a community basis.
