Our org is run by a group of passionate and determined people from varied walks of life. Each board member is committed to reaching out to their community and helping the less fortunate by tapping into any creative force within them, mentoring and providing the necessary and basic tools for success.
A group of young men in Christian Village, which lies just outside of Accra, started this group when they saw the need in their own community and the harsh effects of poverty. "Mawulolo" translates to "God’s greatness" in “Ewe” (one of the languages spoken in the southern part of Ghana).
The group works around the clock to help all individuals in need-- they partner with families to work out a plan towards success and offer services to teach and improve their community. A big focus is on education and so they offer scholarship and after-school classes to maximize learning and potential.
Our children are taught english, math, I.C.T, science, writing, and have a chance to cultivate arts, sports, and dance skills. Mawulolo Youth Network utilizes volunteers to help teach the classes and partner with the board in role modeling and mentoring our children.
Office work including: searching for and writing grants, reaching out to donors and volunteers, planning events, planning curriculum, fundraising, social media upkeep.
Direct work with our children: teaching, homework help, and leading activities that focus on Fine Arts, Ghanaian culture, and cultural exchange.
Volunteers may stay with host families. This option is encouraged so that one might learn the indigenous language, become familiar with the community, and get a feel for day-to-day life here.
However, volunteers may also opt to rent a place for the extent of their stay in Ghana. Our board would make the arrangements.
A guest room is also available to our volunteers. Mawulolo Youth Network provides a decent, clean and safe accommodation for all volunteers. Our accommodation is situated in Kisseman, West Legon Christian Village on the outskirt of Accra, Ghana. All accommodations are checked regularly.
Volunteers would be picked up from the airport and brought to their place by the president and the vice president of the organization.
Our organization would be available to help familiarize volunteers with Ghanaian life-- from the markets, to our country's attractions, to the basics of living in Ghana.
Avg Daily Cost: $20.00
We are in need of volunteers to do various work for the organization. You can contact for more info
Aside from the after school program offered by Mawulolo Youth Network, other programs are available as well. These programs include a Feeding Program, Kids Day Out, Medikids (Medical Screenings), and Back to School Giveaways. At the Feeding Program, a delicious meal is provided to each child in the program. The Kids Day Out program is to bring all the kids together to have fun, play different kind of games, do face painting, and bounce in a bouncing castle,and give them snacks. The Medikids Program provides the children of the Christian Village community with free medical screenings, along with information on how to get the treatment they needed once they received diagnoses. The Back to School Giveaways consists of donors contributing school supplies and monetary gifts used to purchase school supplies. These school supplies are then distributed each September, before the start of the school year.
Mawulolo Youth Network is doing so much for these children who are living in poverty and otherwise would not have the means for proper educational, medicine, and nutritional needs.
