TURNING GIRLS AND YOUTH INTO LEADERS

Our goal is to become operationally self-sufficient, empowering students to eventually manage and run Create Change’s entire operation.  In time, we plan to hand over our Northern Ghana operation to the girls who we’ve trained to run it, so they can lead change far into the future.  Create Change will then focus its efforts on a new operation in the region. 
In Canada, we provide youth with the skills and confidence to take a leading role in fundraising, marketing and general operations, with the goal of our students ultimately running Create Change’s entire operation.
