About Peace Corps Ghana
Peace Corps Ghana traces its roots and mission to 1961, when President John F. Kennedy sent the very first 52 Peace Corps volunteers to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in Ghana. Today, Peace Corps Ghana is more vital than ever, working in emerging and essential areas such as information technology, education and business development. Peace Corps Ghana Volunteers continue to help countless individuals who want to build better lives for themselves, their children, and their communities.
Many people in Ghana are passionate about information technology. Their dream is to design web or internet services that can be useful to their country or their community. Another dream that many Ghanaians share is to become entrepreneurs, own their own business and run it successfully. Mobile Web Ghana is a non-profit organisation that was created to marry those two dreams. We help passionate people become mobile-technology entrepreneurs, by teaching them to create applications accessible via mobile phones (whether via mobile websites, apps, SMS, or voice). We also want to make them develop the business side of technology, and teach mobile business: startups, market research, business models, etc.
