In many rural areas of Ghana, girls and young women face daunting odds. In education and health, the services are poorly designed, funded and distributed. In addition, the gender gap continues to present barriers for girls and overcoming the cycle of poverty in our communities can be next to impossible.
To combat these problems, GHEI has launched a special initiative to celebrate, promote and build GHEI’s “focus on girls” programming - HERS (Health and Educational Resources for Success)!
With the launch of HERS, GHEI is stepping forward to be a leader in girls and women’s empowerment worldwide! To do this, we need your support! That’s why we're raising $15,000 for HERS during our annual holiday giving campaign.
This years campaign will kick-off on #GivingTuesday (Tuesday, November 27, 2018) and will last through the New Year! Any contribution you make will make a huge difference! Thank you for your support!
Interested in doing more? Consider a gift at our Champion Level ($1,000) or Adovcate Level ($600) and be paired with a young girl in one of our education programs!
HERS Champions - A one-time donation of $1,000 will support one girl in our Youth Education Program for gifted teenagers throughout her ENTIRE three years in the program. This amount will also sponsor one large community workshop on sexual and reproductive health.
HERS Advocates - A one-time donation of $600 will sponsor a young kindergartener struggling to keep up with her peers for her ENTIRE two-year participation in our Early Childhood Literacy Program.
