Equip young women and girls with information to own their bodies

What I'm Leading

Women Aspire Ghana, is on a mission to equip young women and girls with information to own their bodies, make their choices and to voice out all issues of abuse enacted on them.Adolescent girls and young women have rights and should be encouraged to use their voice to speak on issues that adversely affect them. There is a need for them to have the power within to own their bodies, make their own choices and to voice out all forms of abuse enacted on them and other girls as well.

Who I'm Impacting

This advocacy campaign targets adolescent girls, parents, teachers, and policy makers.
