Equality. Empowerment. Empathy.

Women’s Empowerment in Ghana

Work with Ghanaian women and girls to provide skills-related training, promote gendered approaches to health and well-being and improve computer literacy and English language skills.

Durations:  2 - 12 weeks

Program information

Like in many countries with a history of gender inequality, women in Ghana have a lower average annual income than men, are less likely to own land or property, are often forced to abandon their education due to pregnancy or poverty, and are more likely to work in jobs requiring manual labour. Through combined efforts with local community groups, you’ll work with local women and girls to provide social care and support, foster confidence and promote agency, improve female health and wellness, and empower young women to challenge traditional gender disparities.
