Our Areas of Action
Educating for Impact
This collaborative program empowers young people in underserved community schools with the 21st century skills that will help them to succeed, in school, work, and life, and make a positive impact to the world around them. Scope of program:
Project STEM - The program focuses on advancing equity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by inspiring and empowering students and teachers in schools and districts in the communities we serve.
Practical Entrepreneurship - students are immersed in entrepreneurship and hands-on training that prepares them to advance their education and careers. Training includes: Computer skills, Community Gardening/Farming, Traditional Art & Craft, Basic Blueprint Reading/Building Construction.
Global Classroom - offers many ways for youth to connect with their peers around the world via face-to-face videoconferencing to discuss educational topics and issues that matter to them most.
Through collaboration and partnership with other NGOs, local hospitals, clinics, and volunteers, WPD offers programs in the area of community health awareness and preventive programs, infectious disease, and nutrition to save lives in poor communities. We also donate basic medical supplies and equipment to local underserved community clinics.
As demographic pressure and the youth bulge in most communities pose severe poverty and employment challenges in Ghana, WPD is one of the youth-serving organizations, dedicated to promoting a culture of entrepreneurship, innovation and business development in such communities. Our collaborative programs provide relevant hands-on experiences that empowers community youth, the knowledge skills in entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and self employed or work readiness.
