Our core leadership training contains amongst other topics: project management, volunteer recruitment, community engagement, basic literacy development, fundraising, social entrepreneurship and project evaluation.
Our catalyst grants (which can be applied for after potential ‘catalysts’ take our online courses, enable student, teachers and community members with a clear and sustainable plan for an education project to receive a £1000-£2000 grant and mentoring to make it a reality).
We officially launched the programme in 2019, but have been supporting numerous teachers and community members with community projects since 2015.
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.

After the success of this program, and after supporting many teachers previously, we launched a ‘teacher changemaker’ program in May 2019. In particular, we look for teachers who can not only create sustainable impact in their own area, but support people across out network, implementing their ideas further afield.
