Education is an opportunity to be the you you want to become, how you will become. We believe where you start in life shouldn't dictate where you finish. That belief drives us to work tirelessly to break down the barriers of today to enable a better future for all children in Ghana, Africa.
We have a learning crisis, with one in six children and adolescents worldwide still not reaching minimum proficiency levels in reading or mathematics.
The chance of a poor student in Ghana making it over the minimum learning threshold is very low. Only 41.5% even attend school at all if the child is from a low-income household.
Education has a strong effect on closing the earnings gap. With no education, men earn 57% more than women, but the gap shrinks to 24% among those who can attend primary school.
When children learn to read and write, they become confident in their ability to succeed. It empowers to develop personal strength and to pursue own hopes and dreams.
Through having access to better job opportunities, these former students are now able to give part of their earnings to their families, breaking the cycle of poverty not only for themselves, but also for their relatives.
When they graduate, they will put their acquired skills into action — go to work, start their own business, innovate, produce and bring capital and knowledge to the whole community.
We built a shelter for young children and adolescents, who are in need of a new home to feel be loved again and to be able to create their own future.
Our programs help children and adolescents in need. They are looked after by us and we provide an environment where they can learn and prosper.
We form partnerships with schools, to extend their buildings, staff, and materials so that these children can start following their own dreams.
“We equip our students with the tools they need to go out into the world and shape it for themselves.”
We're on a mission to give children and young adults a real chance in life through feasible education. Join the team. We're always looking for enthusiastic people.
