On invitation from the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, our Executive Director is responding to a Validation Meeting for the National Framework for Engaging Traditional Authorities and Faith-Based Leaders to Address Gender Inequalities and Harmful Cultural Practices in Ghana.
As part of the continuous efforts to promote effective advocacy and engagement on issues on Harmful Cultural Practices, Sexual & Gender-based Violence (SGBV) and Gender Inequality, a National Framework was developed to engage Traditional Authorities and Faith-based Organizations to help address the issues.
In order to finalize the document, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) through the Department of Gender in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA Ghana), held a day’s meeting to solicit for final inputs to validate the draft of the National Framework for engaging Traditional Leaders and faith-based Organizations.
Our Executive Director who has several years of experience in liberating rural communities from such practices, made positive contributions and suggested measures to curb these harmful practices that have always been a bane to Ghana’s development especially in rural communities.
Necessary Aid Alliance over the years has placed so much emphasis on the need to create a society of equal opportunities for all regardless of gender. That is why most of our projects have always been female centered. We believe women have so much to contribute to society and its intricacies and the more they are given the opportunity to unearth their hidden talents, the more forward, society will move.
