Challenge

This collaborative project addresses gender inequality in Ghana, often by addressing healthcare issues related to gender. Our beneficiaries work closely with women and children in the community to provide a healthcare and welfare safety net, allowing them to seek our support and funding when they're at their most vulnerable. This often includes sharing knowledge, expertise, resources and funding to address the healthcare concerns of women and girls in the Kokrobite community.

Solution

The project provides structured vocational training and support to community leaders, teachers, and other individuals with the duty of care to children and vulnerable adults. This helps to educate the community on how gender affects healthcare and provides guidance to all community members on how to identify, react, and manage potential healthcare concerns.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of this project is to deliver generational change by better training and equipping both the older and younger generations of women and girls in the community. We seek to undo current misunderstandings of gender and healthcare approaches, and we seek to provide access to, and build confidence and trust in, best-practise, modern medical approaches.
