The Our Generation Voluntary Organisation (OGVO) was founded in 2004 in order to enable young people to use their leisure time for the benefit of the wider community. This service took the form of participation in volunteering/work-camps for the consciousness of various community development schemes. Teams of young men and women crossed ethnic boundaries to work in other areas to bring new life and ideas to isolated places in both rural and urban Ghana with a view to blend the country and to develop it.
OGVO is non-political, non-religious and non-profit making organisation. Its membership is open to all those (interested persons) that wants help put a smile on the faces of deprived people in Ghana irrespective of nationality, religion, race, political affiliation, colour, sex or educational background.
