Our Youth Hub in Agona Nsaba

In 2019, recognizing the urgent need for expanded educational infrastructure in Agona Nsaba, Ghana, we initiated our youth program. Through our daughter NGO, A Different Life Ghana, and collaboration with local authorities, we gained insights into the community’s youth needs, guiding the development of the Youth Hub.

Construction of the Youth Hub began in June 2022, nearing completion, with plans to commence activities in early 2024. Special thanks to Leapfrog e.V. and Stiftung Nord-Süd-Brücken for sponsoring the construction, supporting our mission to provide formal and informal learning opportunities for the youth in Agona Nsaba.


Our vision is to empower youth through education, skills, and opportunities, enabling them to thrive, create positive change, and shape a better future.


We offer information technology education, library, recreation resources, sewing workshop and adolescent reproductive and sexual health education.

Commencement Youth Hub

Information Technology Center

In the current digital era, possessing IT skills is essential for academic and career success. Recognizing this, we’ve integrated IT education into the curriculum in Ghana. However, our needs assessment in Agona Nsaba and nearby communities revealed a lack of functional IT labs in many schools, hindering students’ competitiveness during national exams.

To address this, we’ve established a fully equipped IT lab, providing comprehensive training and hands-on learning experiences. Our goal is to bridge the digital divide, empowering the next generation with essential skills for success in a rapidly evolving technological landscape.

Beyond academic support, the IT lab offers after-school sessions for students to practice with specialized software. Additionally, it serves as a community hub, extending its impact through IT workshops for other community members. This initiative aims to unlock opportunities and prepare students and the wider community for a digital future.

Library and Recreation Center

Introducing libraries is vital for fostering responsibility, community connections, and communal skills among children and teenagers. Recognizing the absence of functional library facilities, our goal is to create a vibrant and inclusive library that serves as a hub of knowledge, inspiration, and community engagement.

This facility will provide residents, especially children and teenagers, with a welcoming space to explore books, access digital resources, participate in educational programs, and cultivate a lifelong love for learning.

By bridging the information gap, the library will empower individuals, ignite imaginations, and contribute to the overall development of the rural community. Furthermore, addressing the lack of safe recreational spaces, our youth hub will feature a multi-purpose sporting area and a playful zone for children, promoting physical activity and social interaction.

Sewing Workshop​

In Agona Nsaba and nearby communities, many young individuals, especially women, encounter obstacles preventing them from pursuing higher education, ranging from financial constraints to academic challenges.

As part of our youth program, we recognize the importance of vocational education and training as it provides practical experience in one’s chosen career path. Our primary focus is on providing vocational training, with a spotlight on fashion designing, for motivated young women facing limited access to further education.

This comprehensive program includes IT skills, basic business management, and marketing training, empowering participants to start their own businesses. In addition, we foster market connections to ensure the sustainability of their ventures. As part of our commitment to growth and community support, qualified individuals may have the opportunity to become instructors, creating a cycle of knowledge transfer within our training facility.

Reproductive and Sexual Health Education

The reproductive health needs of adolescents require focused education and support. Societies should provide them with information to make responsible decisions and achieve the necessary level of maturity.

Accessible information and services are crucial in helping adolescents understand their sexuality, preventing unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, and reducing the risk of infertility. Simultaneously, educating young men to respect women’s autonomy and share responsibility in matters of sexuality and reproduction is essential.

To address these needs, we are establishing a welcoming center with qualified staff, collaborating with local and national programs to meet the required standards. Additionally, our unit will conduct regular health outreach projects for community members of all ages.
