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.

Our Story

Born from the idea and professional experience of an Italian volunteer residing in the country and shared by Ghanaian friends, AICP was established in 2021 with a small group of committed sponsors and volunteers; we are now developing inclusive educational projects in Kumasi, the second-largest city in Ghana, and in the Volta Region, one of the poorest of the country, to support the less privileged children, many of whom have some kind of disability, and their families.

Mission

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.
