Our core training programme develops ‘catalysts’ knowledge, skills and mindset to lead sustainable change in their communities through education, based on their communities aims and aspirations. Persons undergoing this programme are groomed to become community leaders in education.

We officially launched the programme in 2019, but have been supporting numerous teachers and community members with education projects since 2015.

Youth Changemakers

In October 2018, we launched a new ‘youth change maker’ program offering grants and mentoring to young women keen to lead an education project in their community. In order to secure the opportunity, the girls had to submit a detailed application, with those shortlisted being interviewed. Successful candidates are given support in fine-tuning their ideas, with Ghanaian and UK mentors assigned to support their project through to completion.
