The Humanity Magazine campaigns for humanitarian endeavors, particularly on issues of women, children and the

vulnerable in our communities.

It serves as an advocate journal that is working for the educational future protection and proper welfare for

disadvantaged girls and children popularly known as kayayei found all over our big cities in Ghana.

The sufferings of these girls have been the forgotten part of Ghana's humanity given the countless hardworking

girls, who are precariously sleeping on the streets and corners of Accra, Kumasi, Tema, and Takoradi which exposes

them to various forms of vulnerability.

This has become a national phenomenon that requires a pragmatic intervention by public and private institutions

to team up and work with civil society in Ghana to end the menace, especially their children’s education and

empowerment effort to avoid the threat of the vicious cycle of poverty, this includes the building of a daycare center

at Aboaso in Ashanti region to provide a safe haven for Kayayei children.

We are faced with the problem of vulnerable girls and children on our streets coupled with homelessness to the

advantage of unscrupulous men, who takes advantage of the state of their environment to rape, abuse, defile and

have sex with such girls resulting in teenage pregnancy, the spread of disease, dangerous abortion etc.

A sizeable number of girls who migrates down south from all parts of Ghana particularly the north are mostly in

their teens and are very fertile making teenage pregnancy a challenge for the campaign.

Outreach programmes geared towards teenage or unwanted pregnancy including education on the dangers of

unprotected sex, how to use female contraceptives, resisting the lure of their fellow males and HIV awareness are

very important. The Humanity Magazine sister Organisation, Kunata Voluntary Organisation ,does its outreach

programs with paintings educating the girls about the dangers of being in such wrong situations and urging them to

be vigilant in their endeavors shown on TVs to educate the public.

And is currently pressing the government to scrap the medical cost of violent abused cases, pointing out how Ghana

is reeling and trending on the prevalent cases of domestic violence and it's only the poor that are mostly assaulted

and can’t afford the cost of medical diagnosis. The humanity magazine has established itself as the leading

organization which is not only calling for a Parliamentary bill to prosecute witch doctors and close witch camps in

northern Ghana but urging the interior ministry to swiftly arrest witch doctors describing it as criminal in the

process which must be stopped immediately by the security agencies.

Apart from Humanity magazine's work for the disadvantaged, it has extended its humanitarian works to publicly

advocate for justice for the very voiceless groups within the society.

The humanitarian includes the promotion of good governance, advocacy to reduce road accidents, media freedom

and campaign against corruption which has been the main cause of poverty among the masses, including the

promotion of toleration and interfaith


Notwithstanding the organization’s judiciary petition for stakeholders to present 50percent of women to contest as

parliamentarians dubbed ‘the Mexican way’, for gender equality, to promote girl child

education but more

importantly end the cultural and religious barriers against women's advancement, because we at Humanity

Magazine have the firm belief that, women participation is a development path.

The Magazine has been active in urging civil societies and the public to direct their energies to the very pressing

issues that affects the ordinary Ghanaian such as the road accidents, the surge of children beggars, school kids

under trees, domestic violence, irresponsible fathers etc instead of voicing the contrary.

The magazine’s sports arm uses the beautiful game of football titled football For Humanity to promote Peace .
