Standing are the Patron of the Club, Ms. Sarah Nyarkoh and a Club member making a contribution during the meeting. Seated at the high-table are Executive Members of the Club. The meeting was an end of year meeting to review the year’s Action Plan and put together a new one for 2012. Some of the implemented activities for the year included: community sensitization on the importance of girl’s education through the use of dramatization and role plays, excursions, talks on management of menstruation and clean-up activities. During a visit of FAWE Ghana Senior Programme Officer, Mr. Picconius Siameh, one Club member, Ms. Sarah Torpkor had this to say during a discussion with members: “The Club activities have helped me to know more about myself as a girl and to manage menstruation and keep myself neat.”

Congratulations, PAMDU Girls Club!!!


Good afternoon,

My name is Dramani Faiza. I’m studying Tourism in Morocco. I am from the Northern Region of Ghana, Walewale to be precise; a town in the West Mamprusi District. I was once a member of FAWE Girls’ Club and FAWE through the Club, really motivated me. The Club’s activities had positive effect on my life,,,,,but when I went home for holidays last summer, the Club was not existing again in WALEWALE. Please I want to know why?  



     Dramani Faiza

Mary Sassah is my name. I used to be a member of FAWE Girls’ Club during my Junior High School days. I testify that it is a Club that has actually benefited a lot of girls including me. I, personally, have benefited both socially and academically. Through the Club, I acquired skills like: self esteem, critical thinking, negotiation, assertiveness, public speaking, leadership and many others that have kept me going till now, I also won full scholarship into a Senior High School. In 2009, FAWE Ghana crowned me FAWE Girls’ Ambassador. Currently, I’m a final year student of Valley View University in Ghana, pursuing Business Administration with sponsorship from the Grey Felder family from New Jersey, USA who are friends of FAWE Ghana. After graduation, I plan to establish Girls’ Clubs in schools, in towns I’ll be working in. I can say with confidence that I’m what I am because of my association with FAWE Ghana and the Girls’ Club. As a sign of my appreciation for what FAWE Ghana has done for me, I always work for the Chapter during long vacations. My prayer is that FAWE Ghana continues to attract more donors to enable it continue the good work it is doing. .

Award Winners and Dignitries
Award Winners and Dignitries


I stand in to thank FAWE Ghana Chapter for such a prestigious honor bestowed on us. I would not say so much, I am short of words because the award came unexpectedly. Sincerely it is giving me such an encouragement as a young lady to move on in life, in view of that we say a big thank you to FAWE Ghana Chapter Executives and then to my young ladies who are yet to come up. All I want to say is, when you want to move on, there are people to support you.

I joined FAWE junior club when I was in the junior high school and through motivation and education we received from our heads, I was able to compete in an essay competition and won a one year scholarship to Mfantsiman Girls’ Senior High School. It did not end there, that encouragement within me moved on with my interest to become a journalist. I pursued a diploma in journalism and I gained an ITM award as well.

Now I am in the University of Jayee a degree in journalism. If I am not the best student in my school, then I can boldly stand here today and say I am one of the best students in the school. All because of the good training FAWE offered me in some years ago. I will therefore entreat all of you ladies gathered here today to join FAWE junior club and focus more.

 As young ladies, we need to move on in life, come up to compete with the guys. We should not fall back and let them take all positions. I pray and promise you that very soon you will see me as either a minister or as one of the best journalist in the country. On behalf of my colleagues I say, we promise to come out as prominent people in Ghana. It is not an empty promise but a fulfilled one.

Thank you.

Helena Tekpli (left), a Trainer at the leadership Training Center (LTC) tells her story When I graduated from Junior High School in 1995, I stayed at home for four years due to lack of support to pursue higher education or learn a trade. It was not until 1999, that I was offered a place in a Vocational School, which FAWE Ghana Chapter had just started at Fotobi, my hometown, for girls to offer entrepreneurial skills at no cost. The school offered courses in sewing, tye and dye batik making, bead making and cookery as well as training in life skills and adolescents sexual reproductive health. I graduated from the school in 2002 and FAWE Ghana employed me as a trainer in its Leadership Training Centre (LTC), where I have been working since. The Motto of the school and similar ones that the Chapter opened in other districts is “SCHOOL AND WORK FIRST, MARRIAGE LATTER”. Now, I can say with confidence that FAWE Ghana has charted a path for my future, and I am an empowered young lady. My prayer is that all FAWE Ghana’s Vocational Schools / Training Centres and Girls’ Clubs, which are no longer functioning, will be revitalized to enable many more needy girls be empowered academically and economically because education is the key to a better life.
