VOICES Ghana (formerly Voices of the Voiceless Ghana) traces its roots to May 2006, when Ahmeda Mansaray-Richardson, the current Executive Director was inspired by her Master's research on Childhood Sexual Abuse, to create an organization that would recognize, encourage and enhance the capacity of young people. Within fifteen months from when the idea was born, the founding team including Ms Nana Adwoa Owusu-Achaw, a young Ghanaian university graduate,  Barabara Kelly, a Canadain International Development Agency intern, as well as a dedicated Board of Directors, Mr. Ladi Nylander, Ms. Betty Akuffo-Amoabeng, and Ms. Sarah-Lynn Nuno-Mansaray, successfully Incorporated the NGO. Hitting the ground running, this team began the work that is now 6 program initiatives with impact on over 500 young Ghanaian lives.


"All my life I wanted to be a leader. Then I met the VOICES team. With the skills I now know I already had inside me and have developed further, I can continue in my destiny" -- VOICES Program Alumni        
“For me, V.O.I.C.E.S is that classic yellow school bus on the road to active social change. Bus drivers may come and go, adding key life perspectives at every impact-making stop. As the journey continues, change occurs, as people get on and off the bus. This bus is only full of young people, however the mechanics of running the bus are youth-concerned adults, or in my mind, supportive BIG KIDS.”--- Nana Adwoa Owusu-Achaw, Founding Team member
