TeenTalkGH is a non-governmental youth organization that started in March 2014 and was registered under the national youth Authority (upper West) on 29th February 2016 and the registrar generals department for commencement and incorporation.
The organization was started by Miss Linat Osman Kundaribuo and Kunlie Desmond as co-founders. The organization is born out of the fact that, the two founders realized 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;
