Together change is achievable
Alliance for African Women Initiative (AFAWI) is a grassroots Ghanaian organisation that has been striving to narrow the gender gap and empower women and children in Ghana for over ten years. We strongly believe in sustainable development and are working towards ensuring our projects become self-sufficient for decades to come.
The Livelihood Project seeks to empower impoverished women by providing the necessary tools to start or grow their own businesses so they may build a bright future for themselves and their families.
The ECCACHILD Project assists marginalised children in communities who have slipped through the net of government and social protection. We support them with their education and healthcare needs.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT
Our volunteer internship programme is for individuals with an active interest in gender and development. We welcome individuals who seek to make a difference in this world.
The Empowering Girls project aims to bridge the gender gap in schools, helping to create equal opportunity for all students. We create awareness of menstrual issues amongst girls and boys and provide menstrual support for girls so that they can stay in school.
The Community Outreach project holds health screening days in communities with little access to or knowledge of health facilities. In partnership with Ghana Health Services, AFAWI provides free screenings for communicable diseases, counselling and information sessions on the services available to the community.
