Summary

FAWE Ghana plans to revitalize six Girls' Clubs in six communities. The immediate beneficiaries will be 240 girls, their families and the community members.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The challenges that majority of girls and women in Ghana face are: low importance placed on girls' formal education, domestic violence, poverty due to little or no education, abuse of the rights of girls and women. Traditional practices such as early marriage, female genital mutilation, inhuman widowhood rights, and the need of girls to be engaged in household chores to equip them with skills as homemakers, which women and girls accept without questioning are issues that Girls' Clubs address.

How will this project solve this problem?

Girls Clubs are effective movements in the promotion of girls' education by raising girls' aspirations to enrol and stay in school. They have emerged as leaders and role models in their communities and become part of FAWE Ghana's grassroots advocacy

Potential Long Term Impact

Club members have contributed greatly in drawing community members attention to issues that are not encouraging girls' education Some communities, partly through the activities of the Clubs, have instituted bye-laws to ban negative cultural practices
