This year, we piloted a new programme - a very special one. With generous funding from Rotary Clubs in Wiltshire, and driven by the advocacy of Hub Manager Rexford Benon, seven girls from the most rural community that we work in started Senior High School.

We strongly believe that if girls from Lawra have access to opportunities, there will be no stopping their potential. All seven of these trailblazers are have now been at Senior High School all over the Upper West region for over 6 months - we are so proud of them, and excited for the impact that it will have on their communities. We can't wait to roll this scholarship programme out to other schools too!

Low school completion rates and youth unemployment are acute problems in Lawra Municipal, and opportunities for education and training are even further out of reach for young women, due to poverty and gender inequality. Our VocATE programme provides vulnerable young women with vocational training through the form of a supported apprenticeship with a small business owner.

We are excited to be supporting a second batch of young women later this year - giving them the skills, confidence and belief to achieve their dreams! 🌟

Please lets try to equal the opportunities as well. Your write up contains indicators that's clearly hindering the growth of youth within the Municipality. We gonna like you reinforce attention into mitigating hurdles of Male-youth of not being proactive in taking up such apprenticeship programs. The cage seems not eaten by all. Because, the margin of youth employment rate minus low efforts to ensuing life's is marvelous... We appreciate your effort as an NGO but collective aware you can outcast this challenge

Giving hope to the hopeless. keep up the good work Action Through Enterprise - ATE

Love this Photo, Janet is such a hero ❤️

Wow she looks happier than before, thanks ATE

"I have been a student in a village like these children before where my parents didn't know anything about pads. It was a hell for me so I absent myself from school. In fact, me being part of this project is a dream come true. It makes me feel like a role model for these students. Words can't express how I feel when I get to the schools and these girls are ready waiting to receive pads with so much excitement. I really appreciate our work on this, which gives these girls hope and confidence to take their learning seriously." Charity Kyekpo, ATE Hub Assistant

Charity manages our sanitary pads project and works closely with the girls at our schools, ensuring that they have the knowledge as well as the materials for a dignified period which doesn't get in the way of their education. She is a powerful role model and we are so happy to have her in our team, passionately advocating for the rights of girls in Lawra.
