In 2007-2008, Humanitas Afrika implemented a project named Bon Départ in the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou. In collaboration with two local schools, we trained not less than 100 women in basic administrative skills. Young women who applied for this course didn’t complete their education and due to this, many of them were in difficult situation.
In Ghana, our partner is Afrika Women Association of Obom, a local women’s group we help to establish in 2007. Thanks to the collaboration with this group we run a community centre in Obom where women can meet and where we opened a workshop for dress makers.
