The location of the project is Akyem Aboakwa which is located in the Eastern Part of Ghana.
The main goal of this project is to help eradicate poverty and advance education to enable peaceful and sustainable community.
Youth in Action reaches out to youth in rural areas to confront social, health, and environmental issues. Providing hands-on activities, including teaching seminars, we address issues such as AIDS, sanitation, and general life skills. Our niche allows us to partner with other organizations to develop health, nutrition, and sanitation projects. The donation portion of our work includes sending clothing and school materials to the community and children’s homes. Our services include sending youth to school as well as organizing them for community service projects and adventure service challenges, which give them the opportunity to enhance their own communities.
Program Placements will be given based on thier own experience.
