Summary

Our collaborative project works with various stakeholders including governmental organizations, local NGOs, and schools to improve access to quality education, health, and gender equality, through a range of locally driven sustainable development projects that assist these organizations to achieve their goals. We aim to support communities in their efforts to improve the quality of basic education and help women to become more financially independent and socially empowered.

Challenge

This collaborative project addresses gender inequality poverty in Ghana, combined with access to quality education and health care. Despite improvements in access to education, many children find themselves in inadequate facilities with poorly supported teachers. Social norms mean women are expected to drop out of school at a young age to support their family, and a lack of access to quality healthcare further hinders their ability to break the poverty cycle.

Solution

The project provides structured vocational training, healthcare, and gender-equality workshops to women, that help improve their financial independence and allows freedom of choice and an alternative to the expected path of dependence. Support will be given to a sufficient number of local women and girls to secure economic and social achievements that change their lives and act as catalysts/exemplars for influence and change across the wider community.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term project removes key barriers, economic or social, that prevent women and children from achieving social justice, equality, and a dignified standard of living. Access to quality education, the diversification of the vocational skills, and the promotion of good health and well-being of women and children increasing their opportunities and incomes. The project will phase over to the community and the collaborative partners, once they feel prepared to continue independently.
