EDITORIAL 
 The Humanity Magazine campaigns for humanitarian endeavours, particularly on issues of women, children and the vulnerable.
Whilst the magazine’s sports arm uses the beautiful game of football titled football For Humanity to promote   Peace And Political Unity Before, During And After Elections In Africa For Violence Free continent. 
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 for a proper environment.
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 endeavours 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 group 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. Notwithstanding the organization’s judiciary petition for all political parties to present 50percent of women to contest for 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 affect the ordinary Ghanaian such as the road accidents, the surge of children beggars, school kids under trees, domestic violence, irresponsible fathers etc  instead of the voiceful contrary.
