The Association of Youth and Young Adults Development (AYYAD), a charitable organization based in Accra, Ghana, Africa, empowers Ghanaian youth to resolve community challenges standing in the way of unity throughout Ghana. Through educational sponsorship, youth mentorship, and community volunteerism, AYAAD promotes peace, courage, and unity throughout Ghana.
AYAAD has extended an invitation to Getting Out by Going In (GOGI) a USA, California-based, non-profit, to facilitate leadership training to AYAAD participants and stakeholders in the community. AYYAD members certified in the use of the GOGI Life Tools, a set of practical life tools proven to inspire and unite communities.
As a chaplain in the U.S., Imam Ayub Haroun witnessed firsthand the impact GOGI made in his community and was motivated to bring these universal tools to his home country of Ghana. As co-founder of AYYAD, he commissioned the GOGI team to certify 300 AYYAD team and community members as Ambassadors of the GOGI Life Tools. “I’ve witnessed first-hand the impact that GOGI can have on an entire community,” says Haroun, “and can see how they can be used to help promote peace throughout Ghana through community building volunteerism.” The GOGI Team of Trainers will be in Ghana for the certification training slated for October, 2021.
For more than 20 years, Getting Out by Going In (GOGI) has brought GOGI Life Tools to individuals across a diverse set of communities, empowering them to create their most optimal life and align on positive community goals. GOGI Life Tools are time-tested decision-making strategies that help individuals make sustained positive cognitive and behavioral changes.
