Who we are

At Nneka Youth Foundation, there is nothing more important to us than uplifting communities by transforming the lives of young people. Since our founding in 2012, we have served more than 9,000 youth in nearly 200 communities in Ghana’s Greater Accra and Volta Regions. We provide educational and life skill building opportunities for young people who might be undeserved, overlooked or otherwise at risk of falling behind in their studies. “Nneka” is the Igbo word for “Mother is Supreme.” It conveys a sense of belonging to one’s motherland and staying there when life is good – but also seeking refuge, surmounting challenges and reinvesting in one’s community during the toughest times. When Nneka’s founder, Cecilia Fiaka, saw her own home village of Ve Gbodome plagued by high rates of school dropouts, teenage pregnancy and substance use, she was compelled to return and do something about it. That was the birth of Nneka Youth Foundation. Nneka brings camps, teacher trainings, leadership workshops, health seminars and mentoring programs to rural communities, giving young people opportunities to discover their strengths and the resilience needed to succeed as students, professionals and community leaders. We believe that our rural youth arecapable of becoming world changers when given the mindset and opportunities to make dreams possible.
