TURNING GIRLS AND YOUTH INTO LEADERS

Our goal is to become operationally self-sufficient, empowering students to eventually manage and run Create Change’s operations.  In time, we plan to hand our Northern Ghana operation over to the girls that we have educated and trained to run it, so they can lead this modelinto the future, enabling Create Change to recreate its model elsewhere.
