9. Obiettivi ed elementi di innovazione
Please explain the targets and the background of your project: 

We put our focus on these major areas:
* Basic ICT training of about 56 students in the less endowed areas spanning about 7 schools in each reions of about 4 out of 10 regions in Ghana

• Training of out-of school students

• Public awareness campaign of HIV/AIDS

• Sustainable training in craftsmanship.

Come, e con quali mezzi cerca di raggiungere gli obiettivi prefissati: 

• Breaking the communication Gap: Many are those who are lacking behind in this global village due to minimal exposure to the Information, communication technology (ICT). So we have been focusing on training the youth in this line of action.

• Education of the youth on the concept of sustainable development ; Out of school students or the underprivileged are taken through series of training to acquaint themselves on the need to get some skills or to build up their skills so they can make a living from their own ability. And this will be maintained

• Elaborating the deadly disease to the public: Public awareness campaign is being organized in order to keep the public informed on the way and manner to handle the HIV/Aids disease and the affected persons, and to promote a healthy sexual lifestyle among the youth.

• Youth Empowerment: Both in and out of school youth are being taken through short courses on youth leadership in order to add their voices to the issues of national concern.

Quali opportunità/problemi affronta: 

We conducted an extensive research on the need to establish this project and so we have targeted young people aged 12 to 25 to benefit directly from this project

These people are Ghanaians at school going age and out of school young people. Most of them are within four regions(Ashanti,Central,Greater Accra And Western Regions) and few are living in the Northern region. And we plan to make it a well-balanced in terms of gender.

When we look around Ghana and in most of the regions, many are those who are school drop-outs and many who are even in school but lack the basic knowlege of ICT which is a common phenomenon in Europe and America.So as an NGO we strife to clump down on the digital divide.

Please explain what is unique or special in your project: 

This project does not only train students to build their capacity but make it a sustainable training so that the beneficiaries who could otherwise become drop-outs and vagabond will have some skills to rely on which can fetch them job in the market, hence improving their lifestyle and becoming productive individuals in the society.

The public awareness on the HIV/AIDS also help students who are sexually active to know what is right and wrong and what can harm their educational goals like the teenage pregnancy etc.

We also teach students to be active and participate in the development agenda of the country.
Again, we do not discriminate on the basis of gender, ethnicity, and religion and or on color. All have equal opportunities to benefit from our programmes.
