We got interactive with these students about faced challenges and how to overcome them.

JIM BOURTON Memorial Agric Senior High Sch (JIBMAS) was NNEKA’S last stop as we wrapped up our first quarter activities. We dwelled on the Challenges Students face and how to Overcome them in order to aid them achieve their goals. The interactive section with over 460 students revealed many more challenges that ranged from; lack of proper communication between students and their parents, between students and teachers, peer pressure, relationship issues with opposite sex, lack of facilities and inputs to aid effective learning, absence of some subject teachers and many more. These issues are currently being managed by the District Director of Education, doubling as the Headmistress of the school, who has very limited resources to facilitate adequate solution mechanisms. We are very grateful to Ghana International Bank GHIB for supporting this program with reading books.

When Nneka moves, hope is restored!

Our visit to Mobole yesterday, one of the communities we work in, in the Ningo Prampram district, has gone beyond conscientising over 300 Youth on the Potential in them and how to Excel. Three of our form one Jnr high school youth received the biggest surprise when their full educational and basic needs support was given by the TKM team. A single mother to one of them was also given a seed money to work with to support her other children in school. We appreciate the Head teacher of the District Assembly Basic school who accompanied us to visit the home of one the children to ascertain her true state.

Women at Ve-Agbome discuss avenues to become more successful.

For a successful transformation and a total mindset change of our youth to be achieved, women cannot be left out. As part our advocacy programs we engage all stakeholders especially women to drive Nneka’s agenda; “one CHILD at a time, to realize the future that is hoped for”. We had a very fruitful time with the women of Ve -Agbome to discuss avenues to become more resourceful. They renewed their commitment to work hard, to focus on their Responsibilities, uphold the Rights of the child and to support their children to grow to become responsible adults. It was full of fun and sharing of clothing with over 60 women during session. For us at Nneka Youth Foundation, the year of ‘Action to Achieve’ has taken off.
