HISTORY
RUCAF was started in Elmina by a group of fish mongers whom due to some reasons they were unfortunate to have education themselves. Again discovering students from other tertiary institutions pays visit to see these street children sleeping in the open place & eats uncooked fish as a result of hunger without support or any action.

Further, these women thought it wise, it’s about time they provide to support themselves since their male counterpart look down upon them as either sex or baby making machine hence they care less.
