Seeding Priorities

Economic Empowerment

The Golden Line Programme

Economic Empowerment

Economic Empowerment

Investing in women's capacity to mobilise and sustain crucial resources for their communities through innovative entrepreneurship, savings and loan strategies.

Disability Rights

Supporting the inclusion of people with disabilities within the sectors of everyday life and building their capacity to attest their rights, participate in and lead decision-making processes.

Violence Against Women + Girls

Amplifying equality, respect, dignity and visibility of the contributions of women and girls to society by building community awareness and responses to violence against women and girls.

Health

Promoting advocacy and action in the fight against preventable diseases and the provision of safe and quality access to information, health services, and proper resource management within communities.

Sexual Health + Reproductive Health

Developing responsive resources and services for women, youth and children in the areas of sexual and reproductive health; HIV/AIDS; bodily integrity, choice and rights; and gender and sexuality.

As the caretakers and nurturers of families and communities, women are in the best place

to make beneficial effects on all persons – other women, men, adolescents and children.

This happens when women are supported to build their capacities, knowledge, talents,

skills and desires in secure and encouraging environments.

 

To this end, HFFG invests in women’s economic empowerment, specifically through

The Golden Line Programme (partnered with Simavi), a village savings and loan scheme

for women in rural and mining communities in the Western region of Ghana. Through

this initiative, women participants learn critical skills in entrepreneurship, women’s rights,

solidarity consciousness, marketing and communications and livelihood advancement.

The project beneficiaries also serve in the role of peer educators and community ambassadors,

sharing the tools gained through this experience with others in mentorship, teaching and

business engagement. Participants are also trained as whistleblowers for inclusion in the

Violence Against Women Watchers (VAWW) programme serving alongside representatives

from the district assemblies and male traditional leaders in their communities. Therefore,

economic empowerment not only increases resources but also voices speaking truth to power.
