About our work

International Citizen Service is a global volunteering scheme which aims to give young people aged 18-25 an opportunity to make a difference to some of the world's poorest people through real development work. 

International Service aims to protect and promote the rights of the most marginalised people in developing countries, such as women, disabled people, children and young people, and people living with HIV/AIDS.  By working through long-term partnerships with local community organisations and governmental departments, International Service helps support people to understand their rights, and put them into action, so they are empowered to change their lives for the better.

Children living in the Northern Region are the least likely to go to school, stay in school and transition to junior high school and senior high school.

In particular the Tamale Metropolis has challenges with retention of girls in school and transition of girls to higher levels of learning.  Some of the reasons for this have been the lack of role models, supervision at home and the many household chores that girls have to undertake.  These have resulted in poor performance and learning outcomes for girls.

Creating Change has worked to find innovative solutions to poverty through the empowerment of girls. They work with government schools providing infrastructure and support to make education more accessible, improving retention and progression of girls within the education system.
