JustGhana focuses on providing the most important infrastructure to fit the local communities needs. Currently, our priorities are Covid and WASH protocols. This includes building & renovating school toilets, often under-resourced.
JustGhana conducts feasibility studies to assess the communities greatest need. Then, local craftsman are employed and JG matches a youth apprentice with each craftsman to help train the local community.
We are looking for any skilled craftsman; plumbers, electricians, carpenters, architects, engineers, and any others, to help improve the infrastructure in our partnered schools & their local community.
As JG try and make our work the most sustainable it will be, you will work alongside a local youth to train & inspire them with the work you are doing, which will provide the youth with a job opportunity where they are currently facing unemployment.
JustGhana work on a number of projects, but all start with a community need. We provide schools with hand washing stations to prevent Covid, refurbish existing and build toilets, and in the future would like to build a disabillty centre to help with assisted learning in schools.
