Donate a WakaWaka Solar Light!

Donate a WakaWaka Solar Light!

Ghana is in the middle of an electricity crisis! Many are experiencing hardship as a result, including our children. If there is no electricity, no light in the evenings, they can not do their homework which leads to poor results at school. We now have a wonderful solution for them!! The Wakawaka Solar light. When fully charged it provides 80 hours of light!

Waka Waka offers a ‘Buy One = Give One' opportunity for  To Be Worldwide. If a Waka Waka Power (a very useful combined Solar light and mobile phone charger)  is bought, Waka Waka donates a Solar light to one of our children in Ghana.

Football and To Be Worldwide

Football and To Be Worldwide

 To Be Worldwide strongly believes in the "Brain boost" ! How Sport and Physical activity enhance children’s learning. With that in mind we are adding football to the Saturday activities.

 When the Centre closes at 14:00 around 30 (under 14) children head out to the football field for their football training and to watch the match/training of the older boys.  We hope to be able to upgrade the football pitch in the future and acquiring the necessary training material and gear for the children to make it a wonderful experience.

Alumni Workshop

Alumni Workshop "A great success"!

The first ever Alumni Workshop was held at the Takoradi Educational Centre today.  We had the pleasure of welcoming our former students...even from our humble beginnings in 2004. We had a wonderful day looking at how To Be Worldwide could help our alumni in the future and how our alumni could be more 

involved with the activities at our Centre today.There were many useful suggestions and Frank and Qweku were appointed Alumni co-ordinators for the 2015-2016 and will help bring together our Alumni and help us better understand their needs.

All the Alumni who attended the workshop offered To Be Wordwide a wish for the future. We were very touched by their commitment to To Be Worldwide.

News from Cerise, our Volunteer

News from Cerise, our Volunteer

Hello my name is Cerise Tete and I started as a volunteer at the To Be Worldwide centre in October. I have spent the last few weeks learning everything about the centre, figuring out how everything works and getting to know the children and the staff. I found out lots of children attend the centre each day and every single day there are still new children coming to register for the library or the computer course.

At the moment I’m developing more language activity cards for the children. There are already some activity cards in the library and the children really enjoy making the cards and trying to improve their reading skills. The great thing about these cards is that the children can make the cards individually, so they can do the cards even when there is no teacher available. The activity cards are not suitable for all reading levels yet, so now I am making more activity cards so they will be suitable for all reading levels and all children attending the centre.

Wonderful Workshops at Takoradi Centre

Wonderful Workshops at Takoradi Centre

For the second time now... and we believe it is going to be an annual event... the workshops held at the Centre were a great success !!! Madelon Mijnster and her son Jurriaan ran a workshop about setting up an Internet Business. The children couldn't have been in better hands with Gaby Rappange and her son Max when it comes to what it takes to work in the Advertising business. A better understanding of the importance of Hygiene can save lives!! How do germs spread? Or what happens when you drink dirty water? The Hygiene workshop given by Monique Cornelisse and her daughter Claire was very educational.
