PROJECT INFORMATION

Sponsored organization
Salih Self-Development Center
Organization description
The Salih Self-Development Center teaches area children vocational skills, so that they will be able to find jobs and learn self-sufficiency. It also provides necessities and medical supplies to the community. The Center already made progress towards a better future for Kumasi. Ibrahim Anyars Salih, the President and Founder of the Salih Self-Development Center, grew up in the Aboabo District of Kumasi and knows the challenges that face the children of Kumasi. He saw that children lacked vocational skills and education. He was fortunate to have the opportunity to come to the United States, but has never forgotten his friends who continue to face poverty in Ghana. He started the Salih Self-Development Center, a 501(C)(3) organization, in order to give the children of Kumasi more opportunities and to provide a better quality of life for the whole community.
Project update
· ClassACT arranged for the donation of 14 sewing machines, and connected David Weeks through our classmate Mike Alexander (President of Lasell College in Newton) to Lasell’s Design Department; they have been working with them to create designs for the women who are learning to sew at the center to export to this country. In the long run one goal is to establish a recycling center in Kumasi.
