Thrive Works Ghana

 

THRIVE WORKS GHANA an NGO located in Ghana, West Africa, whose goal is to focus on giving education, mentorship, and skills training to at-risk youth, ages 15 to 25 years, to enable them to make better life choices especially when it comes to identifying and developing their God-given abilities.

 

Background

 

We serve a community with a high youth unemployment rate which causes the youth to turn to drugs, cybercrime, and other social vices.

We believe honest work brings dignity and independence while it enables an individual to also support others in a sustainable way. (Acts 20:33-35)

 

Mission

To provide access to education and apprenticeship training as well as employment opportunities to the youth in Sunyani to unearth their God-given potential which will enable them to contribute to their communities.

 

Vision

To create a community where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential and be valuable contributors to society.
