This is a girl-centered rural community development organization that is steering rural areas towards change through quality education and skill training.
We work with young girls, their families, communities, other organizations, and local government to bring positive change.
When girls and adults work together as part of a change process, it is more likely that the program will be successful and sustainable.


Rural areas in Ghana, have the countries lowest levels of school enrollment and completion rate.
Thousands of rural girls are becoming mothers every year. Communities like In Nerebehi Afari of Nkawie District in the Ashanti Region has some of the country’s lowest level of school enrollment and completion and highest in teenage pregnancy and dropout. Most of the girls in the school become teenage mothers before they complete basic education. In Agogoso, Nynahini and anyinamso are out of control. This remains alarmingly common and is growing.
Young girls exchange sex for sanitary pads. 414 teenage girls in 26 districts of the eastern region in Ghana were impregnated in the last two years(2015-17) while exchanging sex for sanitary pads
