Future Connect Ghana (FCG) is an independent registered non-governmental and nonprofit organization based at the Upper East Region and operates in the northern and upper regions of Ghana. FCG fosters an integrated community development, expands living standards and support in the creation of sustainable communities. FCG prime slogan is “Expanding Horizons” for building sustainable communities through capacity building and services delivery to the deprived and marginalized people of the society.

FCG’s mission is to achieve an expanded capacity and opportunity where they live a better life, away from poverty, hunger and increased environmental stewardship, community economic vitality and social inclusions. FCG aims at expanding horizons by creating sustainable programs to promote youth in agriculture, increase livelihood by empowering women and girls economically, increase productivity and crop yield through scientific research and innovation and building sustainable communities. Recognizing the immense role of the youth in contributing to the agricultural revolution, it is imperative to fashion-out a long-term all-inclusive program that would appeal and inspire the youth to actively participate in agriculture as a career.

Our Vision and Goal
A country in which the youth are empowered in available opportunities to increase the economic vitality of the communities in which they live in.

The goal of FCG is to contribute in improving the economic vitality and the living standard of the vulnerable communities in Ghana through effective community mobilization, capacity building, advocacy & strengthening of institutions at the grass root level.

Our Approach/Strategy

Future Connect Ghana is committed to building a strong community youth networks to drive the sustainable communities and poverty reduction agenda. Now is the time to seek alternatives and develop within constraints, thus FCG facilitates people in the rural communities to extract the capital necessary for community development in the three spheres that affect sustainable community development. We use our programme; Climate change and resiliency, Agriculture science research and innovation, policy and Advocacy, etc. to create the balance within the interplay of economic, social and environment (the three spheres). The program goal is materialized with a helping hand from members, donor agencies, Philanthropists, etc.

Melanie Washington is someone who experienced God and speaks of God to each and every one of us, especially those of us who despise ourselves, despise the Bible and have given up on ourselves. She speaks to those of us who are struggling through the grudges we hold, especially in areas that are very hurtful and hard to touch, areas with the most painful scars. Through sharing her personal experience of forgiving the unforgivable such as the murder of her dearest loved ones and sexual abuse from different family members, she has been an open book. With regal grace, Melanie speaks from her heart with complete vulnerability and authenticity while sharing her real experience of wrestling with God. It can be easily related by each and every one of us. Whether you are struggling with something that you can’t forgive, trying to hide it or pretend that you have already forgiven, listening to Melanie will give you the courage and power to face yourself and confront what you have not forgiven. You will find the power to truly forgive and have the freedom to truly live and love.
Melanie Washington leads a ministry for youth in prison by inspiring them to forgive and love themselves and experience the forgiveness and love of God. Her ministry is called Mentoring A Touch from Above. It means that the true mentoring is through knowing God and experiencing God as love. She speaks at churches and in youth organizations throughout the world, inspiring everyday people to forgive, to live, and to love.

Our mission is to connect underrepresented youth to the ocean and themselves through surfing. We use surfing as a vehicle to teach: respect for nature, healthy living and personal growth.  We hope to increase pro-social behavior for SF youth by partnering with public schools to start surfing programs.
