"Smarter to raise healthy children than to repair damaged adults"
To give the necessary guidance and support to children in the rural communities in an attempt to curb social vices and bring them to a point of believing that, they too can be world changers.
Our vision is to nurture generations of lifelong learners, leaders, and doers in the classroom and beyond. Education doesn’t just build careers, it builds character. Ghana’s future depends on engaged citizens.
We believe in touching lives with every step we take and we believe we can take these valuable steps with awesome people like you. Our network of volunteers is expensive and boasts of very seasoned individuals with great commitment and a wealth of expertise. It is easy to become an integral part of our transformational work and be a change agent.Get involved
Mavis lost her mother at age 14. Nneka Youth Foundation encountered her during one of our programs. Since her father was irresponsible, we got her grandmother to take her up while we supported her education through Junior and Senior High school. In 2017, Mavis graduated as a science student from Presby Senior High School, Mampong, with very good grades (aggregate 19) but unfortunately had to stay home for a year while we search for financial support for her university education.
This year, we applied to the University of Development Studies, Ghana for the 2018/2019 admissions hence Mavis awaits her admission to study Pharmacy.
Bernice comes from a family of 9 children of which she is the last born but the first to make it to Senior High School (SHS). After Junior High School, she stayed home for a year without going to school even though she was placed in one of the renowned Senior High Schools in Ghana. Her parents could not afford her school fees due to economic hardship. Nneka Youth Foundation identified her during one of our programs and included her on our Scholarship scheme where her full tuition and upkeep was catered for.
Bernice’s academic performance was so encouraging and she won many awards in school like “The Best Agricultural Science Student.’ When she was in SHS 2, Nneka Youth Foundation registered her to write the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Private Exams and her results were very promising. Again, this year, she sat for her final Exams, West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and she excelled with aggregate 16. Bernice has so much potential and hopes to become an Agricultural biologist.
We have applied to 2 universities for the 2018/2019 admissions at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology and the University of Development Studies. Bernice also awaits her admission to study Agribusiness/Bio-Chemistry at either university.
Through our programs, we identified a needy child, Georgina Ackah, who is partially blind. We took her to Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital and she was diagnosed to have damaged her Cornea and therefore needs a cornea transplant as soon as possible. Georgina is 17, and in SHS 2 at Ve Senior High School in the Volta region. She is filled with much youthful vibrancy and aspires to be a journalist in future.
We would be glad if you could support Georgina to undertake an eye surgery which costs GHS24,000.00 (USD6,000)so that she can have her sight back.
