ABOUT THE NGO
Vision Statement: Play and Learn hopes to help eradicate poverty through sports, academic education, and mentorship in not only Ghana but Africa at large.
Mission Statement: Play and Learn seeks to empower the youth of Ghana through combining athletics, academics, and professional mentorship to develop skills needed to become the future leaders of our world.
Our Model: Learn and Lead
The idea of Play and Learn Foundation was identified, conceptualized and developed in August 2013; when its’ current Executive Director, Nana Kwasi Ohene, was pursuing his MBA in Marketing Program at the University of Ghana Business School.
The Play and Learn Foundation
believes that a strong basic education and the development of soft skills are
not strongly emphasized in most Ghanaian schools. It is the organization’s goal
to provide a space where local students are provided with a safe environment to
build these skills through problem solving, creativity, and sports.
Play and Learn uses a 3-tiered “Learn and Lead” approach to build well-rounded leaders in their communities: mentorship, sports, and academics. By modeling Play and Learn in this way, the organization seeks to provide children with a support system that cares not only about their current wellbeing, but the strength and potential in their future.
One Love. One Heart. Let’s get together…
Most people attend UG and have no idea what is happening in the neighbourhoods surrounding them. We are looking to bring students, staff, lecturers, all stakeholders and the community together in a movement toward equity and togetherness. Join Play and Learn, University of Ghana Students Sports Council, and Fit Link and you will feel alright.
