Challenge

Girls in Bongo, a small village in the Upper East Region of Ghana are from low income families, are unable to afford education, drop out of school due to lack of motivation, have low self- confidence, see their future to be bleak, are unable to unearth their talent and do not have the opportunity to take up leadership roles in their community. Their sacred voices are usually unheard. Their horrid stories untold, their dreams are buried in the mud of hopelessness.

Solution

Train-Coach-Mentor Girls Leadership Project focuses on training, coaching and mentoring girls to be leaders and achievers in their communities. Project participants learn to build self- confidence, basic leadership and entrepreneurship skills through our workshops and meetings. The girls are then paired with mentors who share their experiences and support them to achieve their goals in life. The girls are finally challenged to each support 8 other girls to be great in their lifetime.

Long-Term Impact

Girls and young women who are confident take bold steps, dream big dreams and work hard to achieve their goals in life. Girls with leadership skills take initiatives to bring change to their communities. Girls with entrepreneurship skills have a chance to rise from poverty and give back to their communities. The long term impact of the project is challenge participant to touch 8 other girls to be great in their lifetime.
