Empowerment Starts One Community at a Time!

Help the Underprivileged in Rural Ghana, Africa

Support Our Community Resource Centers

Help transform poor Ghana communities with the gift of education, women empowerment skills and computer literacy and lend your support to our Ghana nonprofit organization in Arlington, VA and Ghana today. At Rural Communities Empowerment Center (RCEC), we are dedicated to helping at-risk adolescents and adults in rural Ghana. We partner with local schools to establish one-stop-shop Community Resource Centers (CRCs) to provide empowerment skills, mentoring and coaching programs.

Our CRCs—Living our Mission

Enhance the welfare of rural communities by increasing their levels of literacy. Empower girls and women with economic and communication skills to participation in their own development. Coach them to use their new found confidence to help tackle the harmful cultural norms that limit their aspirations.
