                                                                                                       VOCATIONAL  TRAINING


As part of our mission to fight against poverty, we give vocational training to  less-privileged women and the youth without skills or knowledge. We give vocational skills to less-privileged people and empower them to start their own businesses.


Currently, we are in the partnership with NABS COMPUTER TRAINING CENTER.


Our vocational Training Courses include:


  1. GRAPHIC DESIGN
  2. WEBSITE DESIGN
  3. PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO EDITING
  4. FASHION DESIGN
  5. FURNITURE
  6. PHONE REPAIRS AND DECODING

   
     


                                                                                                                       LITERACY  PROJECTS

Currently, we are teaching over 800 less-privileged children who could not read and understand. Out of this figure, we have been able to help 60 percent of the needy children (40% girls and 20% boys) to read within one month.

These needy children who could not read ranges between the ages of 6 and 14 years old.

 
 
 

                                                                              DONATION OF TEXT-BOOKS

Because of poverty, most of the parents cannot even afford to buy text-book for their children in school. This affects the student's academic performance negatively. To help solve this problem, we bought a literature text-book titled " The Power I Need To Conquer and Shine" and donated over 3, 000 copies to needy children in schools. Some of our beneficiaries include Amanfrom M/A Public School, Twifo Hemang M/A Public School, Aboabo Local Authority Junior High School,Brekum L/A Junior High School,Boo R/C  Junior High School,Choggu Yapalsi E/A Junior High School,Chiraa Junior High School,Dabala  Junior High School,Kato DC Junior High School,Kikam Junior High school etc

CREATING AWARENESS OF THE BENEFITS OF READING

We also create awareness of the benefits of reading to students, adults and the general public.


We believe that what we don't know is more than what we know." This encourages us to read more. It also inspires us to promote reading.
