The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, has presented an award to Hope for Future Generations (HFFG) for its supportive role in advancing the well-being of women in Ghana.
This recognition was given to HFFG at a Dinner and Awards ceremony held in Accra as part of celebrations to mark this year’s International Women’s Day. The awards ceremony was to honor and appreciate some individuals and deserving institutions for their immense contributions to the quest for gender equality and women empowerment in Ghana. It was on the theme: ‘I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights’.
A citation presented to HFFG by the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Cynthia Mamle Morrison said “Hope for Future Generations has been supportive of all health-related activities of the Department of Gender as well as International Women’s Day”.
The Ministry congratulated the Executive Director of HFFG, Mrs Cecilia Senoo for her role in helping a lot of women and youth in the national Malaria, HIV and Tuberculosis response.
Hon. Cynthia Mamle Morrison in a keynote address said the awards ceremony is in line with the Ministry’s resolve to motivate and honour deserving individuals, institutions and media houses who have contributed to achieving gender equality in Ghana.
The Director for the Department of Gender, Rev. Dr. Comfort Asare mentioned that the ceremony is also to bring to fore the exceptional strides that some young ladies from poor backgrounds have made despite all challenges that confronted them but being able to make it successfully. She therefore called on all other women to strive for success no matter the circumstance they find themselves.
The Executive Director of HFFG, Mrs Cecilia Senoo in a response to the recognition thanked Gender Ministry and the Department of Gender for the recognition, promising HFFG’s continuous support to improve the lives of women.
HFFG has over the last 18 years been at the forefront of various community interventions aimed at realizing a nation free of discrimination where women, children and young people have equal opportunities to develop their full potential.
