Grikob Foundation Ghana is a nonprofit women empowerment organization registered in Ghana with the Registrar Generals Department. GFG is a volunteering organization built out of the efforts and dedication of young and enthusiastic men and women.The Foundation is a humanitarian intervention aimed at empowering women. GFG is an innovative organization that adopts education (formal/ non-formal) coupled with skill / vocational training geared toward helping women to be independent and self reliant.
Grikob Foundation Ghana in its quest to empower rural women has welcomed a volunteer who is an Eco Artiste from Israel. He is called Zeevic Jacob Peretz. He will be in Ghana for some time to train rural women in eight(8) communities of the Gomoa East District in various vocations/skills. This project, which has since started, aims at using garbage and bio degradable materials into useful products. Inasmuch it would provide the rural women with skills that would earn them a means of livelihood, it would aid recycling efforts to make our environment Eco-friendly.
The project is expected to train about 200 women within the period to help them become economically empowered and make them self reliant. Measures have been put in place to ensure the beneficiaries of the project help roll out the training and the skills that would be acquired in other place in Ghana after our volunteer trainer has left Ghana in March 2017. This arrangement is aimed at making the project sustainable so that more women groups elsewhere in Ghana will benefit immensely.
We therefore make a humble appeal for funds of 15,000 dollars which would help run this project and make it sustainable.The money will be expended on tools, materials, refreshments and food, accommodation for our volunteer, training venues,transportation costs and incentives for the women groups who will be engaged in the project. This money will also serve as a revolving fund to make the project sustainable as proceeds from the sale of the end products will be reinvested into the project.
With at least a support of any amount towards the set target, GRIKOB can assist the handicapped women groups through this vocational training in the bid to assisting them to secure a better future. As a donor and a party concerned, you have the right to obtain information.This purports that donors and staff members are informed quarterly about how the acquired funds have been spent. Let's do this together to aid recycling and to put smiles on the faces on the rural women who will become empowered and self-reliant
