Scheduled for May 30th in Kumasi and May 31st in Drobonso, our free, fun, yet impactful Day Workshops are projected to host 500 kids (10-17 year olds) in each location and approx 400 teachers, parents and community leaders at the Evening Town-Crier sessions in both locations.
Our goal for every Workshop is to stir up a TAKE-CHARGE mindset in every young African boy, girl, rich or poor by reminding them of their innate VALUE, give them practical ways to identify,develop and use that innate talent/gift to become self-sufficient, innovative and ground-up solution builders for their communities, continent and world.
