Empower the youth

About Us

The West African Youth Empowerment Organization (WAYEOK) was founded in April 2016. WAYEOK is a non-profit organization dedicated to advance education for children and teenagers. We are located in Kokrobite, a fishing community in the outskirts of Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Our aim is to educate the youth with training and equitable skills, to give them a better perspective. Since 2016, we have been hosting volunteers from Germany. With their help we support local schools. In this program, we also promote a cross-cultural exchange between Ghana and Germany. Furthermore, we also run a theatre group, where young people can build their confidence and a set of skills. Additionally, we are now planning to open a youth library, where young people can find access to age-appropriate literature and computers with internet connection.
