We love all the buzzwords at NOYED-Ghana; sustainability, empowerment, systemic change, innovative, the list goes. However, these aren’t just words to us. Each project, programme and initiative that NOYED-Ghana undertakes focuses on the needs and wants of the beneficiaries. We pride ourselves on getting to know the communities and people we work with, on understanding who they are they challenges they face and why they face them. It is only once we know our communities can we fully understand the task, the goal and challenges that the organisation faces when implementing an activity or project. NOYED-Ghana works in three thematic areas: As shown in the buttons below;
Health is linked to so many development issues making it a complex thematic expanding across other areas including education, infrastructure and economics. NOYED-Ghana believes improved health leads to an improved livelihood and increased economic activity. Therefore we have a strong focus on the health and wellbeing of women, youth and children in society, as we believe without good health you cannot reach your full potential in life.
As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” NOYED-Ghana believes everyone has the right to quality basic education and that sustainable education leads to a sustainable and prosperous future.Because of this we have a strong focus on enhancing and creating education opportunities for the most marginalized in our society including women, the girl child and people living with disabilities.
NOYED-Ghana seeks to provide young people and women with the tools and information that will enable them effectively grow and take on leadership positions, as well as participate in the decision-making processes of politics and governance. We focus on women’s livelihood as we believe that supporting and teaching a woman to be economically, physically and emotionally independent consequently supports her family and the community.
Environment and Climate Change
Prioritizing Environment and Climate Change as the fourth pillar in the organizational thematic areas, NOYED is adopting the three broad area objectives in the national policy of Ghana – Effective Adaptation, Social Development and Mitigation and focusing on them to support more rigorously to succeed in the battle the world is engaged in with respect to environment and climate change. NOYED-Ghana’s goal for this thematic unit is to see a world where the present generation enjoys the privileges of the environment in a manner that does not compromise the privileges of future generations.
