Children of the Light

Our Programs

The CotL programs are designed around a yearly calendar which include international topics such as ‘Black History Month’, ‘World Water Day’, ‘Earth Day’, and ‘World Clean-up Day’. These exciting programs help to broaden the children’s scope of the world.

Alongside this, we annually organise a Reading Month Competition, Mathematics Competition, Spelling Bee, Vocabulary Test, Recycling Competition, and Drama and Sport Events. Children that attend our classes also partake in ongoing literacy and numeracy classes. In addition to academics, the children are assisted in their emotional, social and physical growth. A bi-annual event is the preparation of colourful hygiene parcels that are sent out to various sources such as children with disabilities, children in hospital, street children and the elderly to name a few.

CotL also works with the Accra street children twice a month. These visits involve serving the children a healthy meal, story time, crafts, literacy and numeracy lessons. The children have a chance to draw, write and create during these lessons. We at CotL seek to make education an enjoyable and life changing experience for the many children we work with, as we believe strongly that education is a vital component in enabling children to reach their full potential.
