Our Mission and Vision

The Girls Education Initiative of Ghana provides academic and financial support for girls and applicants with special needs so that they can access higher education and professional opportunities.

GEIG will transform the lives of young women in Ghana and improve development and poverty reduction of the country overall by offering higher education and professional opportunities to an untapped source of talent.

"Through the academic and financial support of GEIG from my Junior High School(JHS) through my Senior High (SHS), and guiding me through counselling for higher education when I had no hope of continuing, I am now studying Economics at the University of Ghana. This determination came from the inspiration I got through the internship with an architectural firm GEIG secured for me whiles I was waiting for my results."

"I took that bold step to jump ahead of my colleagues and wrote the WASSCE when I was in JHS2 to get into Senior High school with the continued prep from GEIG extra classes volunteers. I completed SHS and got an internship opportunity through GEIG with top Ghanaian Fashion Designer - Adwoa Yeboah Clothing whiles waiting for my results to study Psychology at the University of Ghana. I made it. This is a dream come true. "

“I can see a global potential in me now. GEIG took me to study abroad when I was in JHS. Although I am academically bright, I didn't have confidence in my potential. From Kankakee Trinity, I am going to study Medicine and impact my community and world through my dedicated service. I never expected this journey when I was engaging with other GEIG cohorts back in Ghana where I started school in the village. This opportunity is my motivation to excel and give back to society.”
