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.

OPPORTUNITY INTERNATIONAL GERMANY

Opportunity International Germany is a Christian-motivated organization that has been helping people help themselves for more than 20 years. Our faith drives us to support people living in poverty in developing countries. We treat these people with respect and we believe in their ability to permanently free themselves from the cycle of poverty. Empowering women is particularly important to us. In cooperation with experienced local partner organizations, we promote education and entrepreneurship as an investment in the future. Through personal support, imparting technical and entrepreneurial knowledge, access to school and vocational training as well as financial resources, we give poor people the chance to establish and expand their economic activities. This enables them and their families to lead dignified and self-determined lives – free from poverty. In the long term, new jobs will be created, entire regions will be strengthened economically and real future prospects will be developed.
