GSET EdTech Fellowship Programme

Model and Approach

GSET transforms education and development by listening and connecting. We believe Ghanaian youth working together with local communities have the capacity to solve some of Ghana’s most pressing challenges in education. We constantly strive to apply best practices that engage all stakeholders, promote collaboration, and give ownership to communities. We apply the best practices in national development to give ownership to local communities, facilitate collaboration among development partners, and assess the impact of our work. 

Our approach is simple and lasting. We recruit driven, young people to move to underserved, disconnected communities in Ghana for one year. GSET EdTech Fellows complete four weeks of intensive training built around experiential learning to equip them with the skills and mindsets to succeed. Next, they live and work with communities to identify and address evolving and complex local educational needs. Finally, they facilitate community members to design, invest in, and implement solutions, embarking on a pathway to transformative change.

As a nonprofit organization, we offer a transformative experience to emerging digital technology leaders in Ghana – giving them the chance to get out of their comfort zones, build their personal and professional networks, and be a part of the solution for Ghana. Our model is low-cost, high-impact, and scalable across Ghana. We have always embraced participatory development and co-creation as the foundations of our approach. They are in our genes and vital to how we approach education and development.
