WHAT IS SHE INSPIRES?
SHE Inspires is a project that empowers former sex trafficked women in Ghana by providing them a career platform for them to have a business on their own. We are cooperating with A Ban Against Neglect (ABAN), a non-profit organisation that supports women in rural Ghana in skill training programs.
The three beneficiaries that we have is Gifty, Joyce and Patricia who are great at these three different skills which are hairdressing, sewing and decorations, respectively. A Bridal Shop has been set up for them to combine all their skills and make a business out of it.
Each of the beneficiaries have problems in which they could not afford paying their rents every months and the school fees of their children as well. Hence, the business will provide them a platform to earn their own income and to be self sufficient. The income gained would ensure them their independency alongside helping their community to improve in standard of living.
PURPOSE OF CLICK FUNDING
The money raised will be used to fund our trip to Ghana. The main objectives of the trip are as follows:
- Creating awareness regarding former sex trafficked women and breaking the stigma that the community has towards these women by running a motivational talk to the community of Aburi, Ghana.
- Engaging with the community of Aburi, Ghana in regards to creating awareness and breaking stigma of sex trafficked women.
- In the effort of improving and creating a positive ambience for these women to live in and showing to these girls that the community and the people out there are here to support them.
