Girls 4 Girls Ghana First Mission
Girls for Girls Ghana is a 501 (c)(3) charity established in early 2019 by Dina Amoo, a Ghana-born registered nurse living in the US. She grew up in a small Ghanaian village north of the capital, Accra and is acutely aware of problems girls in Ghana encounter which negatively impacts their education. Early pregnancy, STIs, and lack of understanding and proper hygienic care during their monthly cycle are issues. We choose to address these and make positive changes.
We launched our first mission in late May. The team went to a number of poor village schools and taught the young girls about sexually transmitted diseases as well as hygiene during their monthly cycle. The talks were very well received by the girls. Sadly, a lot of girls in rural parts of Ghana quit school because of teenage pregnancy. They also miss a lot of classes during their cycle. The young girls shared their experiences and had many questions regarding all these issues. We were pleased to have the support of the minister and director of the schools and the children’s parents. We chose several eager, willing local women to act as mentors for the girls and provide valuable feedback to us. We gave the girls underwear, shoes, and sanitary pads. All the 386 young girls who participated, now had a better chance of finishing school at least to the basic level. Our team left Ghana knowing a positive change had been made and eager to help more girls on their visit next year.
By teaching as many girls as possible what to do and also giving them sanitary pads, we are ensuring the continuity of their education and also helping them live better lives. All of this is made possible by kind donations from individuals and corporate organizations who care and want to make a difference. Throughout the year several educational and sanitary supplies are shipped to Ghana and distributed by local team members. Our directors have developed a strict procedure for donations to make sure the distribution is done properly. We also take a trip at least once a year to Ghana where our team members and volunteers can see first-hand the changes that are being made in the lives of these promising young girls.
