Raleigh Internationally Ghana was nationally founded by Michael Nmai Maxwell in the year 2008 after the end operation of Raleigh International UK in Ghana in the year 2006. This is to continue with the legacy left behind by the International Office and also help Develop and Empower Young Ghanaians, Communities and Environments through volunteerism. Raleigh Ghana is an organisation that seeks the welfare of the local or the indigenous people and their immediate communities and environment for sustainable development and livelihoods. All our programs and projects are designed to benefit people and communities in the grassroots level.
We are committed in inspiring people from all walks of life, ages and nationalities, involving them more deeply with people, places and communities. We challenge and empower them to be all they can be.
Our second commitment is working in partnership with Local Communities, Government Agencies, NGO’s, Corporate Organisations, Institutions and other potential partners and stakeholders to make a much needed difference in the lives of people and their communities. This is where we act as catalyst for change by bringing/delivering sustainable development programs and projects following the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) where applicable.

Raleigh Ghana is more passionate about helping young Ghanaians to realise their full potentials and to effectively manage their 'day to day' risks they face such as: drug addicts, alcoholism, crime, anti-social behaviour, bullying, loss of motivation/inspiration, negative peers, low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence and many more!
We aim at facilitating, empowering, supporting and building the capacity of young people to take charge of their lives, contribute positively to societies/communities through attitudinal change, self-consciousness and successfully manage their independence and the transition to adulthood.
