Saving the Planet of Rubber Pollution

Beauty, elegance and creativity is our hallmark. A purchase of a single vase empowers rural women and builds sustainable communities. With the ASIGE multi purpose pot baskets that can be use in the home as well as offices, we believe that  purchase and use of this baskets will not empower women but contribute to a reduction in rubber pollution.

ASIGE Women Basket Center is Ready

The future belongs to those who imagine it, those who dream it, those who visualized it, those who make it happen and those who live by it

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.
