Help Sadik empower students in Ghana with Mozilla

Students in Ghana don’t have access to all the materials they need to learn effectively about many different topics. Learning resources are expensive, hard to find, out of date, and not always related to the day-to-day experiences of people in Ghana.

Help empower students and educators in Ghana to take charge of learning. Contribute to support the Global Open Initiative Foundation Network (GOIF), a new nonprofit project that Sadik Shahadu is building with Greg McVerry, co-founders Mohammed Sadat Abdulai and Zita Ursula Zage, and others to support a community of students and educators in Ghana as a part of the Mozilla Open Leaders program. Each GOIF member will get their own website to collect and create learning materials related to their studies, and training to develop their online skills and expertise to engage effectively with global learning resources and scholars. Members will also collaborate to bring their collected learning resources together for others to use — in Ghana and beyond.

Give ASAP! We are raising $3,000 to enable GOIF to kick off their membership program in February 2020 and give the first group of students in Ghana their own websites and training.

Your contributions will make GOIF’s first 10-week mentorship training possible, and lay the foundation for more: paying for internet data and website hosting, food and water for participants, bus transport for trainers, and promotional materials.

Join me to help make GOIF happen! I’ve launched this campaign and I’m personally supporting the GOIF Network because I believe deeply in empowering people in places like Ghana to take more control of their own education and engage effectively with online technologies that connect the world. Sadik and the other founders of GOIF have an impressive record building educational projects and their work brings together best practices that can work locally and be extended to other places and projects.

Contributors will receive an email receipt for their contribution and updates as the project progresses.
