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.

Current beneficiaries: 5

 

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!

 

Promoting girl child education

The issues women and girls face stretch far and wide across the globe, and progress can often feel slow when the numbers of oppressed women and girls are so high.

Sex trafficking, gender-based violence, maternal mortality, forced prostitution and early child marriage, how do we combat these issues? One of the most effective ways is education.

Currently one in five eligible girls worldwide are not attending school, this is unacceptable. we need to make sure that every girl has access to affordable education. Schooling is not just a solution for girls, but also for communities as well. Through education girls are less vulnerable to trafficking, turn to have fewer children and gain greater access to job market. Some of the actions we ca take to promote global education are simple: we can provide school uniforms or supply school shoes, text books, exercise books or even provide financial incentives to families in exchange for students regular attendance.
