Unveiling the Hidden Gems: Empowering Rural Youth for a Brighter Future

How did we made it happen?

In the vast tapestry of our global community, it is often the hidden corners that bear the greatest potential. Amidst the rural landscapes of the Volta Region, a remarkable partnership between the Global Initiative for Water and Agriculture (GIWA) and the Nneka Youth Foundation has emerged, lighting the path for over 3,000 young souls across nearly 200 communities. Join me on a journey as we explore the transformative power of this collaboration and the extraordinary impact it has on the lives of these young individuals.

Effects of poverty

We have adopted the idea of teaching women how to fish instead of always giving them fish.

  • To achieve this, it would be necessary to train women with essential life skills.
  • To teach women about family planning, and hygiene in order to prevent contracting preventing diseases just by keeping their surroundings clean.

This has helped increase the quality of life and prevented diseases like cholera, measles, tuberculosis, malaria, and many more.

In the shadows of isolation, the Nneka Youth Foundation stands tall, offering a lifeline to the ambitious dreams of rural youth. Through their partnership with GIWA, this foundation has become a beacon of hope, reaching out to the forgotten voices and nurturing their aspirations. With unwavering dedication, they extend a helping hand to these communities, providing guidance, mentorship, and resources that empower young minds to seize their opportunities.

The ripple effect of their efforts resonates throughout the region, fostering a thirst for knowledge and igniting a passion for lifelong learning.
