Making An Impact in Rural Ghana

Empower communities with the gift of information technology in rural Ghana, today. Help with Computers and funding for ICT Teachers. Please support Rural Communities Empowerment Center help us provide economic skills for our women as well. If you would like to be part of this terrific effort, we would love to hear from you.

Our Libraries
Our Community Resource Centers include a library that makes reading materials available to everybody. This is a great place for students to do homework, and we also offer tutoring and mentoring in reading, writing, math, and science to students who are 13 to 17 years old.

Our teachers also use the library’s resources to supplement their own lesson materials and pursue their own out-of-class study needs. In fact, we have seen a sharp increase in reading interest with over 12,000 people using our library facilities.

Our ICT Programs
Our CRCs also feature Information and Communications Technology (ICT) programs that train children of all grades, teachers, and other adults how to use computers and access the Internet. Not only does this break their sense of isolation from the rest of the world, but they are learning to access information, exchange information, and compete in this emerging online global village.

As part of our rural development goals, to date, over 2,000 schoolchildren and adults have taken introduction ICT classes, and more than 3,000 people have learned and used the Internet.

Our Children’s Programs
Our CRCs also provide a special place for the members of the community who are between the ages of 3 and 5 years old. We teach these youngsters to read and explore, and we encourage them to participate in educational and fun activities. We expose them to technology early in their lives with our ICT facilities, while they learn and dream.

Our Women Programs
We know that gender equality is a key issue around the globe and that it’s more socially acceptable for women to speak up for themselves. Our CRCs offer programs to encourage the empowerment and development of women and girls while enhancing their skills, including communication skills and tailoring. Our women and girls also learn to articulate their needs and become more empowered and contributing members of their community.
