Afrangua, Ghana - West Africa

Excellence Computer Technology Center is an NGO/charity active in Afrangua, Ghana. It was created by one of our own African-American missionary volunteers at the ACP Destiny Ryales, who has a Master's in Computer Information Technology. Her first visit to Ghana was a missionary trip to support The Living Truth Foundation with fellowship, Bibles, books and fundraised monies. Her spirit was overjoyed when she exited the plane and she has since been blessed with a calling to live there.  She created the NGO in response to a growing need of computer literacy in Ghana. There are currently 1.4% of schools, primary and secondary, that offer computer technology courses. The technology gap entirely too large in the underdeveloped countries.

Destiny had been fundraising since May 2012 and moved to Elmina, Ghana in mid-August 2012. The arrival was welcomed by our missionary family of The Living Truth Foundation. They searched for the perfect place for me to start and located Afrangua in late August. The chief of this village was given a 1,000 euros to complete a handful of renovations before Destiny moved in on Saturday, September 16th . Pastor Francis, head of the Living Truth Foundation, located a teacher who is willing to volunteer and live at the center with Destiny without a salary. The first classes were held on October 1st, 2012.

Through this ministry, Destiny is showing the love of our God through computer technology classes for free to the students (and adults in the upcoming future) who currently lack the education from their local schools of the small village of Afrangua, Ghana, Africa.It will advance the Christian purpose of the universal church by showing the love of Jesus Christ by deed and truth instead of by word and talk (1 John 3:18). The citizens of this village do not have the infrastructure to teach computer technology while our entire planet is becoming computerized. Destiny's mission is to bring the education to them.
