We passionately supporting the cause of empowering women and girls in Ghana, we shed light on the significant challenges they face in the workforce. Despite constituting nearly half of the population, women in Ghana struggle to attain leadership positions, with only 13% currently holding such roles.
Moreover, they experience a glaring gender pay gap, earning an average of 23% less than their male counterparts. This disparity becomes even more pronounced for women residing in rural areas and those with lower levels of education.
To address these pressing issues, our dedicated NGO, BringBackHope-BBH, launched the Empowering Women And Girls-EWAG program in Ghana.
Over the past seven months, we have initiated a pilot project aimed at assisting women who aspire to become Mobile Money Agents and to establish a Provision Shop.
To support their endeavors, BBH invested a total of $10,000: $3,000 to acquire a shop and renovate it, outfit it with the necessary equipment, and IPO software.
Additionally, we allocated $2,000 for training, payroll and licensing ($400 per participant), and a further $3,000 to acquire Wallets for popular mobile networks like MTN, AirTigo, and Vodafone. Furthermore, we dedicated $2,000 towards stocking the shop with essential supplies.
Thanks to our program, we have successfully provided training and employment opportunities to five remarkable young women, ranging in age from 19 to 37.
Their achievements have been remarkable: one woman has saved enough funding for her tuition at Ghana University, another has found employment leveraging her newfound skills, one has recently gotten married, and two individuals continue to work diligently in the shop.
Welcome to HopeMart
The Community 18 Provision Shop in Tema, Ghana!
This store serves as a convenient way for people in the community to get the necessary food and essential household items needed on a daily bases.
Community 18 is not only part of the vibrant city of Tema, but also home to numerous low-income individuals and families who face the challenge of living in a food desert. These neighborhoods lack access to fresh water, affordable food, toothbrushes, soap and washing power, making it difficult for residents to maintain a healthy living experience.
The consequences of this scarcity are felt deeply, particularly by children, the elderly, and those already struggling to make ends meet. Which is why we’ll sell 3 diapers out of a pack of 15, provide a cup, along with a bag of sugar, oil, rice, or gari, and individual packs of washing detergent.
But together, we can make a difference!
The HopeMart Provision Shop is more than just a place to buy groceries; it’s a beacon of hope. Our store shelves are stocked with a wide range of fresh foods and products of the highest quality, sourced from local farmers and suppliers. By shopping at HopeMart, not only will you be helping yourself and the local community, but you’ll also be supporting the livelihoods of local businesses and farmers.
