Joy Makers , an NGO advocated by Awiah Augustine, a gifted Ghanaian footballer, is transmuting the lives of the impoverished in Navrongo with the optimism of outspreading their tentacles to other societies in Ghana.
Joy Makers has set out clear goals they pursue to realize. The NGO seeks to educate and assist needy children in deprived communities in Navrongo and its surrounding communities through education, financial assistance, sports, provision of portable drinking water, healthcare, and feeding.
In less than a year in operation, ‘Joy Makers’ are already impacting lives through the frequent donations on the streets of Navrongo, Schools, Markets, and the Islamic community (during Ramadan).
The Joy Makers NGO first bequeathed stationery items including exercise books, pencils, erasers, sharpeners to the Gonnum Primary School in Navrongo to enable effective teaching and learning. A little over 545 pupils of the school went home beaming with smiles and content.
An 11-year-old Mavis, a school dropout who hawks in markets and streets of Navrongo, is a delighted recipient of the benevolence of Joy Makers. She received school materials to return to school.
On 2nd May 2021, Joy Makers embarked on another donation to feed the less privileged and vulnerable children on the streets of Navrongo. It was under the theme’ I AM MY BROTHERS KEEPER’.
The Muslim community were supported with food items in the period of Ramadan.
As the world celebrates on May 9th 2021 mother’s day, Joy Makers were at the Bolgatanga township to support mothers with food items.
