Empowering Girls through Skills Training
Girls Shall Grow has successfully implemented a skills training program in beads making for girls and young women in Obuasi. This initiative was designed to provide participants with a practical and marketable skill that can generate income and enhance their self-esteem. The program focuses on teaching various techniques of beadwork, including designing, stringing, and crafting intricate jewelry and accessories. Through hands-on training, participants acquire the necessary skills to create unique and high-quality products.
The skills training program addresses the problem of limited economic opportunities for girls and young women in Obuasi. By imparting practical skills, Girls Shall Grow enables participants to generate income through the sale of their beadwork. This economic empowerment helps them become financially independent and supports their families and communities.
Girls Shall Grow aims to challenge gender norms and empower girls to take on leadership roles. By providing them with skills training, the organization is breaking barriers and promoting gender equality. Through their efforts, they challenge the notion that certain skills or professions are only for men, empowering girls to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
