Active Healthy Kids Ghana (AHKG) is a group member of ALWAG and affiliated to the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance. The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance is a network of researchers, health professionals and stakeholders who are working together to advance physical activity in children and youth from around the world. The Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance was established in 2014, following the success of the world’s first Global Summit on the Physical Activity of Children in Toronto.

Active Healthy Kids Ghana is founded on two strong beliefs, that;

-Non-communicable diseases can be defeated (or even eliminated) through increased participation in physical activity among children and youth,

-Optimizing healthy life will produce excellence in sports performance among youth and children, and keeping children and youth moving will produce high academic gains in students in schools and community at large.

AHKG is a source for furthering the “movement to get kids moving”- just like AHK-Canada, HAK-South Africa and HAK-Kenya. Active Healthy Kids-Ghana is an avenue for furthering research in physical activity science, building a knowledge-base in physical activity and implementing evidence-based interventions to increase physical activity levels and performance standards among children and youth in the country.

The intent of AHK-Ghana initiative is to encourage and support evidence-based practices in physical activity centers and to ensure social protection for children and youth. Furthermore, AHK-Ghana supports networking with similar organizations for mentoring, communications and advocacy to improve quality, accessibility and enjoyable physical activity experiences for children and young people in schools and communities across Ghana and beyond.

Aim: AHK-Ghana aims at increasing physical activity participation levels among children and youth.
Vision: Nurture Active Healthy Kids to build a community of holistic wellness.
Mission: Establish the platform for kids and youths to meet global and national recommendations/guidelines for physical activity for optimum health, sports excellence and academic achievement.
