The Impact of Basket Trade on Poverty Reduction

Ghana's economy is dominated by women in the informal sector  which accounts for trade volumes from the north to the south or even cross border trade with neighboring Burkina Faso, Togo and Ivory Coast.  A critical examination of this economy shows how relevant it is to poverty eradication in Ghana and Sub Saharan Africa.  Most of the women engage in Agriculture produce, retailing of imported manufactured goods, textile, crafts and food. We can conclusively agree that without the work of women in the informal economy,  Ghana would have experienced extreme poverty and hunger.

The Pillars of Women Empowerment Presented at Rimini,Italy

Speaking at the 2018 Meeting for the Friendship Amongst Peoples (Rimini Meeting) in Italy, ASIGE GHANA believes that it is time that we invest in women and girls or there is no sustainable future.
 This premises is based on the rapid population growth of the African continent with over 600 million women and girls with majority being under the ages of 25.
Also the rising unemployment levels is a caused for concern, it is time that leaders must wake up to invest in human capital, communities and entrepreneurship especially on women and girls or we are heading towards our dooms day.

Setting the pace for quality education

Sustainable Development Goal 4 looks at quality Education: that is Ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. Achieving inclusive and equitable quality education for all will require increasing efforts, especially in sub-Saharan Africa for vulnerable populations, including persons with disabilities, indigenous people, refugee children and poor children in rural areas.

Washable sanitary pads for girls in Upper East

Great is the future of women and girls in Upper East Region. After our research, we realised that some girls stay from school because of Sanitary pads while others travel to the south( Kumasi and Accra ) to do street hawking. The future of our women should not be messed up because of this simple but necessary natural issue. Its been our vision to liberate these young girls from the pains of the month. We are so grateful to our PARTNERS for the support. Upper East, here we come with Days for Girls washable sanitary pads

Building the resilience of our women to with stand the stress of poverty is our fundamental pillar. This can only be done through skills development and savings. We are happy to partner ACCESS BANK GHANA, Bolgatanga Branch to educate our rural women on savings and financial inclusion. Through TTP support, we have brought Banking to the door steps of under privileged women and those considered unprofitable by traditional Banks. Before today, 99% of our women have never been to a bank and we are proud that 80 year Apoye Atampugbire now owns a savings account with Access bank Ghana and the rest of the women too. We believe that the savings is key to building wealth
