The People's Hub organization based in the UK has joined efforts with the Eastfield Foundation school based in Ghana to empower women in their vicinity with skills that could help them to fight poverty and to develop them to be the "total woman".
The Peoples Hub organization has a vision to help communities, help end homelessness, hunger, poverty and ignorance by empowering youths with skills, education and provision of fundamental human needs. They know that making a difference in someone's life is far superior to making a living.
On the execution side to help and train women is Selasi Nyakpo from Ghana, who had the vision to support women through the Eastfield Foundation school's program. The foundation believes the people in the society can live a good and better life if given opportunities and resources, and can further help those who don't have any of these in their wider community.
Recently, the Eastfield Foundation school was sponsored by The People's Hub to organize training in cake baking and pastry making. The training was targeted at women and youths especially in rural areas.
Women and youths in various rural areas were available at the training center and the creativity, passion and love for learning displayed by those available absolutely pointed to the fact that there are potentials and unique abilities within so many people. They only needed opportunities and support to harness these abilities for their individual usefulness.
Summary of work
- Organised 8 vocational training programs for 800 girls and women in 15 communities across 6 districts in Ghana.
- Conducted management and entrepreneurial skills training sessions for 400 women at 5 districts in Ghana.
- Distributed 300 pair of crutches to 4 disability groups in the Central Region.
- Planted about 350 trees in 23 communities in 4 districts of Ghana.
- Organised 7 awareness and sensitization programs on rights of less-abled persons in 15 communities across 3 districts namely Awutu Senya East Municipal, Ga South, and Amasaman district all in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana.
During the training, it was observed that the attitude to learning, ability to organize oneself and understanding the processes and procedures in achieving tangible results was exhibited by those available at the training center. Questions were raised during and after the training, however, these questions indicated that the ideas on cake baking and pastry making have been received and understood but the lack of source and support for further practice is a threat to these individuals. The People's Hub wish to help Eastfield Foundation train more women in their communities.
