Our team connect, train, and equip over 200 local educational Catalysts to drive community-led change through a network of 42 physical Spots or libraries, most of which we built or renovated, and many of which are solar-powered.
During the pandemic, these education spaces have often been the only source of learning and resources in our communities.
Our Ghanaian staff team lead programmes in leadership, practical STEM and literacy development, which through our local leaders or Catalysts, are impacting an estimated 15,000 learners annually, with communities using education as a tool to solve local problems.
Since 2016, we have also sponsored roughly 300 science kits (working in partnership with Dext Technology) and delivered an estimated 100,000 books (many brand new, thanks to Book Aid International, and including £7000 of new African fiction and local text books). We have fitted solar power to ten of our Spots, also enabling them to have light during frequent periods of light-out.
We work with 40 UK and Ghanaian schools in active global citizenship projects, with an estimated 15,000 students in over 150 schools benefiting from our education programmes and resources. We have run an annual conference in Ghana and the UK since 2018, and led our first Ghana Youth Summit in 2019.
