The Senase Project has been volunteering in Ghana for over five years.

Our nonprofit technology efforts in Ghana are bridging the technology gap in rural regions of West Africa. Big or small, we take on projects in the most cost effective way possible in order to make every dollar count.

What life is like in rural Ghana.

The quality of life for individuals in Ghana has improved in recent years as the country has seen a rise in the economic sector. However for those in rural areas like the Brong Ahafo Region, a staggering 82% of families do not have access to the digital infrastructure needed for internet access.

Approximately 28% of Ghana’s population lives in poverty and in rural areas. However, recent surveys have reported 23.6 thousand farmers and producers in rural Ghana are using new technology and practices to improve sustainability and efficiency. This means Ghanaians are ready and willing to move their country into the future as responsible global citizens.

Teaching tech in Ghana.

Without electricity or digital connectivity, the remote village of Akatim is isolated from much of the outside world. Yet Students in Ghana are learning a lot of the same things we teach our kids in the United States. Kindergarteners start basic English, as well as their native language Twi. They also learn important concepts like how to make sure their water is safe to drink, how to prevent diseases like Malaria and so much more. Older kids develop their computer skills, learn about world cultures and prep for life in the real-world.

IT educator at the Akatim Village School, Emmanuel Adu, teaches a technology class using only a chalkboard. He does a fantastic job, drawing keyboards, hard drives, and other computer science diagrams by hand. The ICT curriculum is part of the National Exam in Ghana, and students are required to be proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and more.

Our partners in solar.

Without electricity, people rely on kerosene lamps. Expensive and dangerous, kerosene also releases harmful greenhouse gases. Thanks to our partners at SoLight Design, and your generosity, a cleaner, brighter future for Akatim starts today.

Recyclable, Lithium-Polymer solar powered collapsible lamps are eco-friendly and safe for kids. Our students and their families have never seen power lines in Akatim, and now they’ll never need them.

Our work is legitimate

The Senase Project is a 501 (c)(3) organization, and our finances are available for download on our reports page. Our relationship with Archbishop Desmond Tutu helped get us off the ground, and in 2014 Forbes blog recognized us as a top small-nonprofit. Since then, we’ve seen incredible success. We’re 100% volunteer-based, and that means all of our donations go toward the people and projects that need them most. We are The Senase Project, working to eradicate poverty through community development.
