PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT

We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. – Les Brown

A healthy society consists of individuals who are physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially healthy. Empowered, engaged and activated individuals are the parents who raise well-rounded, healthy children. They are the teachers who are motivated and equipped to battle great odds to educate the next generation. They are the entrepreneurs, the employers and the employees who provide for their families and grow our local economies. They are the change agents who drive sustainable, positive transformation in their towns and neighbourhoods.

Ranyaka partners with local service providers to help support people development through:

  • Youth development

  • Life skills training

  • Financial training

  • Showcasing career and training opportunities

  • Providing access to mentorship

  • Supporting people with disabilities
