About TUMI Ghana

TUMI Ghana is a non-profit organisation that creates sustainable income opportunities for underprivileged women in Kumasi.

Due to poverty and early motherhood, girls often do not have the chance to go to school. Lacking employable skills and a steady income, they struggle to feel any control over their own lives. Here at TUMI Ghana, we give them the opportunity to learn a skill which allows them to earn their own income and empowers them to feel confident and in control!

Self supporting

Our goal is sustainability

At TUMI Ghana we believe there are better ways to help developing countries like Ghana than giving aid. We believe that the goal should be to become self-supporting, not only for the women who benefit from our project, but also for the project itself. In our women empowerment centre, we provide our students with necessary skills for them to become financially independent. We also direct all our profits from our hostel in to the centre.
