Accra, Ghana – September 4, 2014 – Do Something Ghana – a program of Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES-Ghana) – today launched a web platform with social change campaigns tailored to Ghanaian young people. They are one of eight organizations affiliated with the U.S. organization, DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change in the United States.
Building on the success of DoSomething.org, which reaches over 2.7 million young people ages 13-25 in the United States, Do Something Ghana will run country-wide cause campaigns tailored to issues Ghanaian youth care about. The first campaigns, which can be found at http://ghana.dosomething.org/ tackle everything from physical health to financial literacy to environmental conservation.
“We’re excited to bring campaigns and Do Something to Ghanaian youth,” said Emmanuel Edudzie of YES-Ghana. “We’re proud to be part of a global network of inspiring youth organizations creating large-scale social change opportunities for their young people.”
Do Something Ghana will run BOOK STACKS as their first country-wide cause campaign. Young people participating in this campaign will collect children’s books to improve literacy in low-income areas.
