The SYC is closely in touch with several schools in the Saboba district and cooperates closely with them to offer the students better education and a brighter future.
Unfortunately there is no functioning garbage disposal and collection system in Ghana. Because of this, there is a lot of garbage in public spaces, especially plastic. The SYC informs about the problem and organises cleanup campaigns with young people.
Sporting encounters are well suited to help develop a sense of community and getting to know other young people. Especially in a region where there are always tensions between ethnic groups, sports can make a difference.
Modelled after the parliament sessions in the capital Accra young adults discuss and adopt resolutions on topics which directly affect the communities, such as drinking water supply.
To reduce diseases in the communities around Saboba, the SYC teaches the community members how to build sustainable latrines using local materials. The rate of illness is already dropping.
Few families have saved enough money to make it through unexpected difficulties that may quickly arise from accidents, sickness or drought. Neither do they have the money to invest in the education of their children or to expand their business. The SYC has established savings groups in many communities so that the families there can support each other in the time of need.
