Get to know us

Established in 2014, a different life is a Germany-based NGO that operates as a non-governmental, non-profit organization supporting education and health projects primarily in the global south.

Over the years, we have successfully supported various initiatives, such as Dry Toilets & Hygiene Training for school children in Ghana, Blood Donation Center in Guinea Bissau, a boarding school, and shelter for teenage orphans in Tanzania and Kyrgyzstan respectively.

During our 2019 annual board meeting, we decided together with our daughter NGO a different life Ghana, to launch a youth program in Agona Nsaba, located in the Agona East district of Ghana, due to the pressing need for additional infrastructure to provide formal and informal learning opportunities for young people.

Together we are stronger

We are not the heroes of our own story. The main characters are our local partners and community members on the ground, through whom we have gained understanding of the needs of young individuals in Agona Nsaba. Together, we have strategized, developed, and executed this program. Moreover, we strive to actively involve the community, whether as volunteers or through paid assistance, whenever possible.

Other unsung heroes are our godparents and members who support us on a regular basis, as well as our sponsors. As the years have passed, an increasing number of individuals have joined us, amplifying the impact of our work. Some have fundraised on their wedding days, while others have dedicated their birthdays to our cause. We have also seen individuals selling custom-designed products, with the proceeds being donated to our initiatives.

Thank you all ♥
