Kids and Math is a non-profit, focused on promoting STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math) in Ghana; West of Africa. It is run by ten enthusiastic young men and women who prioritize themselves as stakeholders in/of the Ghanaian educational system.

In 2014, seven young and ambitious students in the second and third cycles decided to change the perception of students about mathematics. They thought of an organization that seeks to address and curtail the fear of Maths by children and later, the initiative Kids and Math was born. After two years of selfless leadership through service, they were registered on the 22nd of June, 2016 officially as a non-profit in Ghana.

In just two years of existence they have donated a total of 233 books to first cycle institutions in both deprived and elite communities and have over 80 volunteers actively working to help spread the gospel of “math love”. On 13th February 2016, they partnered with YoungAtHeartGH to organize an ICT Outreach for students of Childtime Preparatory School in Accra. After winning first place during the 2nd AccraSOUP Dinner; they were awarded a grant to help seed their project. Kids and Math has strong ties with the African Institute of Mathematical Society of Ghana and Vedic Math Ghana.
