In July 2014, Speech Forces was founded by Eric Asamoah Awuah as a volunteer group to assist with the development of critical thinking in high schools accross the country. The first group of volunteers were drawn from KNUST and University of Ghana. These were the two active debating institutions at the time, and their effort laid the firm foundation for what Speech Forces has become. The mandate was simple, the project was to help fill the gaps in thinking and confidence building that is evident in our education sector.
For what started as a voluntary outreach project, Speech Forces has grown to become a household name for speech and critical thinking organization in West Africa.
Who we are
An appreciation of the immense power in the art of speaking is at the heart of what we do as an organization.
The progress of our world is fundamentally tied to our ability to speak well. Whether it is expressing ourselves in an interview, pitching our businesses to investors, advocating for a just cause in society or inspiring a nation to do more, the importance of articulating your ideas effectively cannot be overemphasized.
Our work empowers young people of all backgrounds to think critically on issues, appreciate differences in perspectives, find simple solutions to complex problems and build confidence to engage the many challenges apparent in our world.
