Challenge

The village of Ayenya a community in the Shai-Osudoku District in Accra Ghana has recorded a high rate of teenage pregnancy, and school drop out over the years and its at risk to increase during this COVID-19 pandemic. This project positively engages the young and old adolescents in the village through academic tutoring, adolescent health education, and sports activities.

Solution

IMYouth employs the services of trained teachers to teach and support secondary school adolescent English, Math, and Science. The older adolescents are also equipped and empowered to give back by tutoring the children in the community. All the adolescents are engaged in sports skills training and games as well as monthly adolescent health education led by a community nurse.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support the physical, emotional, and mental well being of 100 children and youth preventing adolscent health risks such as teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, STI, and drug abuse. Secondly, the academic interest of students in the village will be maintained to prevent them from dropping out of school. Lastly, the older adolescents in the village will become responsible young leaders contributing to the development of the village.
