INSPYA (Inspiring Youth Achievement) in line with its aim of encouraging, supporting and inspiring young people to achieve their ambitions is embarking on a mentorship and education trip to Sompre and its surrounding communities within the Wassa Amenfi West District of the Western Region of Ghana from Thursday the 17th of March to Sunday 20th March 2016.
The objectives of the Sompre Project, #Sompre2016 include providing both the interns (volunteers) and communities with:
* A positive learning experience.
* An appreciation of various stereotypes that hinder economic growth.
* A platform to educate, inspire, encourage and motivate the youth of the communities visited.
* Provision of skills training for financial independence.
*Mentoring and Coaching exercises.
*Painting of Blackboard in local schools.
*Training of youth in liquid soap and scented candles making.
*Training of some senior high school graduates and other youth as health ambassadors (peer counsellors).
*Health talk on Sickle Cell Disease, personal hygiene etc
* Medical screening (Free Sickle Cell Testing…).
Inspiring Youth Achievement (INSPYA) aims to encourage, support and inspire young people to achieve their ambitions.
Our work includes, amongst other things, training individuals to mentor students in primary and secondary schools who are underachieving, disaffected from education or on the verge of exclusion.
Our projects seek to provide guidance, encourage and support the youth (mentees) to achieve their ambitions
We attempt to achieve our aims via Mentoring, Self-Development and Career events.
