Education in Ghana, especially university, is still a luxury for many. This leaves a lot of women without employable skills. In our Women Empowerment Center, young women are trained to become seamstresses and designers. These women are also coached on entrepreneurial skills, such as administration and marketing. In addition, they receive sex education and access to free birth control. This results in skilled and independent women who can take care of themselves and their children.
Our goal is not only to achieve financial independence for the women that join our project, but also for the project itself. That is why we run TUMI Hostel and sell the handmade products made in our Women Wmpowerment Centre. TUMI Hostel is located on the same premises as our Women Empowerment Center, and is rated with a 9.4 on booking.com. The hostel and the sales of our products finance the Women Empowerment Center, creates jobs and supports the local economy.
