Hi there,

First i would like to thank you for taking the time out to read about this project. To give you a little background about this project. My mom purchased land in Tema years ago. Tema is a well developed popular city in ghana, about 15 min for Accra. Today the area of where this land is situated has become a popular and bussy commercial area. I recently been visiting Tema allot and i have seen the struggle of employment and lots of students who find it very difficult finding a workplace to support themselves after graduating.

I came up with the idea to use this land to built office/ commercial spaces that will allow business to come in and rent the space. We would then work alongside universities and offer their students to come in and gain work experience or offer students/ graduates paid work for the business that have come in.  We will also use part of the space as charity to offer short courses for those who cant afford to go to university and offer them work after completing the courses.  I believe Tema is in great need of employment and opportunities and this project would be able to provide that.

As much as i am so passionate about this project i also realise that it will cost money!. and although i have saved some towards it i have come to realise my project and idea is far way bigger then my wallet.  I am calling out to those out there who are passionate about helping others to help invest in this project and be a part of the changes and opportunities that will be created for others and generations to come.  Every little helps and together we can make it happen. 

One thing i have always told my self is " if opportunities don't come you create them yourself!"

In my recent visit i did extensive research in terms of cost of this project and it came up too £100,000. This would be able to build 20 shops/ spaces. These shops will be suitable for all types of commercial business which will allow a large range of people to come in. With each shop we can support minim 10 -20 students or more that will gain work experience/ paid work. 

Thank you for reading about this project.  I believe in this project and would be more than grateful if you do too. Thank you for any donation.

Got an idea like this?
