What We Do
Founded in October 2015 by Samuel Dzomeku, NeedBe Foundation started helping deprived Ghanaian communities: first by donating clothes, then with advice on development strategies.
We aim to give children and the youth a new perspective and the chance to deploy their interests and use their talents for themselves and the community.
Through community events, we teach local communities simple methods to make life easier, prevent illnesses and raise awareness about the importance of education. We aim to make a sustainable, long-term impact, empowering each community to attain self-sufficiency.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
We are passionate about building people’s capacities to acquire skills such as bead making and cloth designing. These skills are integral to making individuals more productive and adding economic value to their society.
We recognise the economic importance of tourism to development and provide advice on tourism management to local communities. We encourage visitors to engage with local cultures and landscapes and provide a unique tropical experience of Ghana’s rich heritage.
We aim to provide quality education by exposing young people to different styles of learning and helping them gain confidence as they grow. We also make use of alternative methods of imparting knowledge with the help and support of volunteers from all over the world – broadening the horizons of our students.
“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela.
Goal 3 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals refers to “the promotion of well-being for all at all ages”. One of our most important goals is to educate people about major and relevant health-related issues including menstrual cycles, malaria, and deworming.
If you are passionate about development and want to be part of out team of change-makers, you can join our team as a volunteer. Your help is needed in various fields including our educational projects where you will get a placement in our partner school as an assistant teacher.
This is one of the best ways to have an unforgettable and originally African experience.
