For most people in Ghana, Zongo communities are dens for low literacy rates, squalor, poor sanitary conditions and violence. Zongo communities are often seen as places of hopelessness and low aspirations. In spite of the sour narratives, there are a lot of shining stars from Zongo across the country. Across the country, many people from Zongo are blazing trails and achieving great heights in Academia, Banking, Business, Media, and Law and health professions.


The #zymec18 aims to connect these shining stars from Zongo communities with 100 young people from Zongo to receive exposure, coaching and guidance to build their dreams, set bigger goals and receive mentoring to achieve them. The #zymec18 will be feature successful professionals from Zongo communities in the areas of health, education, law, entrepreneurship, media, banking, agriculture, non-profit and education.

Long-Term Impact

The #zymec18 will culminate in the formation of #Zongo Konnekt, a virtual mentoring platform for all young people from Zongo to receive real-time mentoring and support system from mentors across all professions. This network will be open to all young people and will be used to track their progress over time.
