ALFRED BADDOO JUNIOR FOUNDATION CITY
Alfred Baddoo Junior Foundation (ABJF) City is a British and Ghanaian Non-profit Organization (NGO) that is registered with the Registrar General and the Social Welfare Departments of Ghana. It was founded with the mission to take care of the orphaned and provide humanitarian services to needy/abandoned children as well as the aged who are vulnerable in society. This will be done by delivering value and care to orphans, needy/abandoned children and the aged by creating innovative opportunities. Plights of these people remain the central focus of our activities. We believe that accomplishment is when preparation meets prospects.
We focus on raising, training, mentoring and aim to give quality life to the orphaned, destitute/needy children and the neglected aged within our reach.
As a social development Organization with strong emphasis on the well-being of the orphaned, needy/abandoned children as well as the aged, we are committed to working in the interest of the vulnerable by providing them with support in the areas of basic care, education, good nutrition, shelter, healthcare, strengthening of their families, and advocating for their human rights.
The idea behind the ABJF City is to give children a safe, caring and loving home to grow up in. a place where their basic needs would be met and a place where they feel safe.
Our organization is one of the top social development organizations that provides vulnerable children with quality education, good health and training. At ABJF City, our children are solidly prepared to achieve self-reliance, financial independence and social integration when they are old enough to make an impact in their communities and the country at large. The basis of life in ABJF City is peaceful co-existence- devoid of ethnic, cultural or religious affiliation.
There are established family houses in ABJF City where every child belongs. In every family house at ABJF City, children are encouraged to absorb the family values of harmony, acceptance, teamwork, peace and love in the various facets of life.

The birth of ABJF was inspired by Mr. Albert John Courtney of blessed memory and the Courtney family. Mr. Albert John Courtney was a member of The Most Order of the British Empire (MBE) who took me as his daughter and instilled in me a “can do attitude”, having served him for many years. He was a very influential and hardworking gentleman who believes in the welfare of every human. This dream was also supported by Diana Courtney, a retired lawyer who always reassures me that it is still possible to impact the world in your own small way. We dedicate this vision and dream to the almighty God and the Courtney family.
