Empowerment of women through small animal breeding in northern Ghana

Ghanaian women fill a variety of roles as the linchpin of their families. Many contribute to the maintenance in addition to family work. Nevertheless, women in Ghana are more often affected by poverty than men: they receive lower wages for the same work and are exposed to violence and discrimination. Since the Covid 19 pandemic, violence against women has increased significantly. There is a lack of affordable protein-rich food in Ghana's rural regions. By raising sheep and goats, the women create an independent livelihood. This helps ensure sustainable nutrition and social recognition and reduces the dependencies in which they are repeatedly exposed to gender-based violence without protection.
