Margaretha Ubels and Ishmael Hammond
Special Attention Project, Ghana
A large proportion of street children and school drop-outs in Ghana show symptoms of learning difficulties. Being branded slack and indifferent, many children with dyslexia and other special needs drop out of school and wind up in the streets where they are vulnerable to abuse. Margaretha Ubels, a Dutch national who has been working in Ghana since the early 90s, and Ghanaian Ishmael Hammond have set up the Special Attention Project to help these children back to school.

About Child 10
Sophie Stenbeck Family Foundation and Reach for Change have founded the Child 10 Award to highlight, support and connect bold leaders of grassroots organizations that work with innovative solutions to address urgent and pressing issues for children. Every year since 2014, the Child 10 Awardees meet in Stockholm for the Child 10 Summit, an exceptional opportunity for them to share best practices and to build on collective knowledge and experience to continue and scale their work for children.
