Standing together against child abuse and neglect
Who we are
STACAN is an acronym which stands for:
Standing Together Against Child Abuse and Neglect.Formed by Elsie Owusu-Kumi (a UK qualified Social Worker) with the support of friends working with children in various capacities.STACAN (Ghana) is a non-profit organisation with a particular focus on promoting the general wellbeing of children in Ghana. We carry out our work by collaborating with individuals and groups with similar interests to address peculiar issues faced by children and young people in our society. Our work takes the form of outreach i.e workshops, training, community work, and work with individuals and groups.
Our work is guided by key legislations and human rights treaties such as The United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). UNCRC is devoted to the best interests of the child, and sets out rights that must be realised for children to develop their full potential.
As a service we recognise the fundamental human dignity of children and the urgency of ensuring their well-being and development is promoted.
