With assistance from the Ford Foundation, Rose together with a team from Ashesi founded an early childhood development center called the Kaya ChildCare Center.
The focus of the center is to provide dedicated childcare support to the children of kayayes while their mothers are out working. “The kayayoo’s baby is not a street kid, nor is he/she a kayayoo, yet,” she explained.
“I want to keep it that way. The center is designed to run to fit the schedule and life of the Kayayoo mother, and also provide meals for the children.
