JAMBO Spaces and FTF Ghana launch Click4Change to empower Underprivileged Children in Labadi

Published

In a transformative initiative poised to make a lasting impact, On Saturday 2nd March, Jambo Spaces proudly launched Click4Change, a FREE digital skills training and public speaking program for underprivileged children in the vibrant Labadi community. In partnership with FTF Ghana, a dedicated NGO committed to nurturing the potential of young minds, Click4Change marks a significant step towards empowering the next generation with essential skills and confidence.


For the first cohort which will last a month,  Click4change is starting off with 20 children from La Wireless and La Nativity schools. Igniting a beacon of hope and opportunity in the lives of these bright-eyed eager learners, Click4Change is taking these children beneficiaries on a journey of discovery, delving into courses covering Microsoft Office tools, Google Work tools, and the art of public speaking. More than just technical skills, Click4Change aims to shape the thought process of these budding minds, equipping them with the digital fluency needed to thrive in the modern world.


The impact of Click4Change extends far beyond the classroom walls, as it fosters a sense of belonging, confidence, and self-belief among the children. Witnessing their newfound abilities to translate thoughts into digital creations fills the air with palpable excitement and joy, as dreams begin to take flight on the wings of possibility. But Click4Change is not a journey embarked upon alone. Significant to the partnership is FTF Ghana, who works closely with the schools to facilitate the selection of the children and is supporting the initiative with volunteer tutors. Not forgetting the unwavering support of other compassionate partners, this initiative has blossomed into a beacon of hope for the Labadi community. KFC, Twellium Industries, Nu Lambda Sigma, MyRunway Group, and Valerie Cares have joined hands with Jambo Spaces, providing meals, refreshments, stationery supplies, and transportation for the children, ensuring that no obstacle stands in the way of their pursuit of knowledge and empowerment.


“We envision a future where every child in the Labadi community has access to the transformative power of education and technology” Bernard Sokpe, Co-founder of Jambo Spaces said. He continued by saying “ Plans are underway to establish a dedicated Click4Change computer lab for the children to continue their learning journey long after the program concludes”. To ensure CLick4Change grows beyond this first edition, Jambo Spaces extends a heartfelt call to volunteers who want to support this initiative in any way by reaching out to info@jambospaces.com.
