We are a Canadian registered charity on a mission to transform girls living in poverty into leaders of change. When you create a female leader, you not only change her life, but you are changing the lives of everyone who will be impacted by the change she leads.
why northern ghana?
50% of people are living in poverty
The majority of the population in Northern Ghana are subsistence farmers, living off the land. With only one rainy season per year, the region experiences severe water shortages and food security is a major issue.
Gender equality is pervasive
Gender inequality drives economic inequality in Ghana, where women’s unequal position in society means that they have less power, money, land, as well as less access to education, healthcare and political spaces.
Ghana is a stable democracy
Ghana has a peaceful history relative to the rest of West Africa, a relatively easy culture to work with, limited bureaucracy, a basic functioning infrastructure, making it an ideal environment to create positive change.
