About Children of the Light
Children of the Light (CotL), is a registered charitable organization in Ghana and in New Zealand. CotL runs year-round, after-school learning programs in Ghana for children ages 4 to 16 years in one-on-one and small-group settings. In addition, children also enjoy numerous special programs each year. CotL was founded by Jeanette Brown Opoku, of New Zealand, in 2005. Jeanette has lived in Ghana since 1994 and has three beautiful children. It is her desire and that of CotL, for all children to have a fulfilled and happy childhood, and acquire the skills needed that will allow them to reach their full potential, and, in return, be inspired to give back to humanity and the world at large.
