Who we are
Teen Talk GH is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that focuses on creating safe spaces for teenagers to learn about sexual health, rights and empowerment. Founded by Miss Linat Osman Kundaribuo and Kunlie Desmond, Teen Talk GH works hand in hand with the government and other NGOs to provide youth development, skills training and empowerment opportunities to young people.
Teen Talk GH strives to create an enabling environment where teenagers can freely discuss issues related to their sexual health without fear or judgement. The organisation also provides resources such as counseling services, workshops and seminars aimed at providing comprehensive knowledge of these topics while promoting self-love amongst teens.
Teen Talk GH’s mission is simple: To empower teens everywhere so they can have access to the best resources needed for their future transformation.
TeenTalkGH is registered under the national youth Authority (upper West) and the registrar generals department for commencement and incorporation with the following registration numbers NYA/UWR/RB/YP/032, CG027602016,C006485340 and CG027602016 ,C0006485340 respectively.
The organisation is born out of the fact that, the two founders realised a gap in youth development and skilled development and empowerment. The high crime rates in the Region can be associated to the growing youth in the region. The youth in the region engage in all sort of vices in order to keep themselves active, against this background, the region have recorded high rates;
- Teenage pregnancies and child marriages.
- Drug abuse and addiction
- School drop-out
- Low rates of youth entrepreneurial development
Among other things, the founders realised that, ex-convicts has problem of re-integrating into society.
TeenTalkGH therefore was born to operate within the Upper West region but not limited in the nearest possible future. our projects, programs and activities, will be channel to address most of the gaps identified by the organisation to achieve 75 – 85% positive results within the next (5) five years.
TeenTalkGH also will work hand-in- hand with government, NGOs, Organisations, institutions, societies, and groups and individuals who share in our vision, mission and objective.
In operation, Teentalk will among other things create opportunities, and platforms for the youth (persons within the ages of 15 – 35 years) to empower themselves within our strengths. Teentalk will also dedicate some resources to youth research across the length and breadth of the region.
