As a group, we believe that the most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. Through such exposure, the world becomes a smaller and friendlier place. Our Youth Exchange program provides American youth the opportunity to meet people from Ghana and vice versa to experience their respective cultures. 4 - The group is made up of progressive women who are passionate about bringing change and development within our communities. We share the belief that when a woman is empowered, she invests her knowledge and resources in her children, family and eventually, her community. Our philosophy is derived from the famous Ghanaian proverb that: "when you educate a man, you educate an individual, but when you educate a woman, you educate a nation." Our mission is to establish a thriving, engaged and visible Ghanaian community in Georgia. Drawing strength from our resources and diversity, we seek to provide a platform for meaningful discussions and the exchange of ideas geared towards sustaining personal and community development.
