2020 INTRODUCTION MESSAGE FROM CEO Date

Nneka Youth Foundation has chalked immeasurable successes in the last eight (8) years and our impacts and successes stories are very visible and tangible. Our mission has been to empower the youth to keep them in school, end child marriage, and foster gender equality in rural deprived communities in Ghana. Our major strategy in making this massive impact on the lives of children is centered on summer camps, follow-ups, book drives, scholarship schemes, educational logistics support to young people in communities that are lagging behind in personal and community-based development, teacher training seminars, community sensitization projects, vocational and life skills training for teenage mothers and out of school girls among others. Up to June 2020, our scope stretched across 252 communities in four regions in Ghana, reaching out to over 18,000 youth and young women. This has been tremendous growth from our initial activities with only 500 children from 10 communities when we set sail in 2012. Our primary goal is to expand our life-changing work to as many communities as possible and create many more opportunities for children and women in rural, deprived communities, to say no to poverty and illiteracy to empower them to match up to their counterparts in the developed urban areas and to do this over the long term. Nneka Youth Foundation greatly looks forward to your prospective contributions as stakeholders to our success story. Your valued partnership will be very essential in aiding us to more effectively impact the lives of the youth and women we work with

This year children from the Nkwanta Municipality enjoyed some great food, music, games and walked away with great Christmas presents such as clothes, footwear, books, and other learning materials donated by individuals and organizations. It was a fun-filled day.
