It's good to know we stay connected! Around 50 participants from around the globe joined our annual community meetup on Saturday, March 14th. In light of the Corona crisis we got together online. Each participant took a seat around a campfire in virtual space. We shared our Impact Week highlights 2019, our hopes for the coming year and updated ourselves on current activities.
Can you feel it too? The Impact Week spirit took over during our Coach Camp at the University of Ghana. The Coach Camp aims to improve the coaching as well as the problem-solving and leadership capabilities of every Junior Coach. And we are happy to witness the plan is working out! You can literary feel how much our international Junior Coaches have developed already – not only in terms of their professional skills but on a personal level.
From today on the freshly trained Junior Coaches are goi
During the last two days we have conducted the first Design Thinking Bootcamp on-site here in Ghana. We first tested this prototype during the Impact Week Rwanda, 2018. This additional module is a design thinking awareness training helping our Junior Coaches to get familiar with the approach and learn about human-centered design before learning how to coach during in the following Coach Camp.
In only a few days, Impact Week will be landing in Ghana for the first time — We can literally already hear the Kpanlogo Drums! The preparations are at full speed as the Lead Organizers, Senior and Junior Coaches get ready to embark in this journey.
Congratulations to our newest #ImpactWeek Junior Coaches for successfully completing our intensive 3-day design thinking training! Check out some of our favourite moments from the training!

At Impact Week, we foster future leadership and individual development as part of our social responsibility.
