Empowering Young Women through Soap Making

“Empowering Young Women through Soap Making (Alata – Samina)” is a long-term project aimed at improving the economic competencies of disadvantage young women (15-30) providing them with a sense of self-worth and with the opportunity to experience a full range of life options through this employable programme, literacy and training.

Project location: Amanfrom (Nkawkaw, Ghana)

Amanfrom is a farming community in the Kwahu West Municipality with about 4.000 inhabitants, mainly young women and children. Farmers are mainly cash-crop and subsistence farmers who major depend on family labour.

Through this project, Ancora of Hope Organization in collaboration with Lions Club Pieve di Soligo (TV-Italy) aim to empower young women with this skill training project.

Operation Smile :-)

“Tooth cleaning campaign” is a program aimed at addressing minor tooth problems such as plaques and tooth decay and encouraging the maintaining of healthy tooth among children in village communities where there are no dentists.

By this way we teach a brother to teach a brother the best way to keep their teeth healthy by using a recognized hand book we received from The Hesperian’ s back in 2016.

Although we did not received any financial support on this program but we received in-kind support from friends and supporters whom we may like to acknowledge: Elisabetta Frate & Husband, Federica Luison and Roberta Mangano.

So far so good, two village communities being attended….a total number of children and adults educated numbered up to 450 and still counting.

To enable us to sustain this program and extend our services to more deprived communities we appeal to donors and friends to come to the aid of the program!


Education is like a domino

According to recent studies, almost 90% of Ghana’s children are in school!

This is a great article about the advancements that have happened in Ghana within the last decades. It also shows that investment in education can yield to great results. Although many children now have the possibility to get an education, there is still a lot of child labour and many older kids have to leave school due to a lack of financial means.
“The kids who go to school have more friends. I know education is a right but no one has enrolled me.”
Let’s work together for those children whose lives still haven’t changed despite Ghana’s advancements.

For us, it is important to see the disadvantaged with all their potential and great ideas. They are not passive – they are full of energy, compassion and innovation. Our experience with the kids shows that once you give them the opportunities to learn and grow, many new and positive processes happen. It’s like a domino. Education is the first step to activate their powers and to give them self-confidence.



Health and wellbeing

First aid help to save lives, but it is impossible in village communities where there are no health personnels. In this case lives that can be saved goes perished.

Ancora of Hope Organization in partnership with Hesperian Health Guides are providing first aid tutorials to very remote villages within the Kwahu West Municipality in the Eastern Region of Ghana where there are no medical personnels.

This Project aims to educate community members in remote villages and at least train one resource person in every village on first aid tips to help in saving lives. #everylifematters
