Alexander Kedje and Priscilla Akorfa – Shape Lives Vocational Skills Training Center

Date grant awarded: March 26, 2019

In Hohoe in the Volta Region of Ghana many school dropouts, orphans, girls and young women do not have access to equipped facilities for training in valuable trade skills. As a result, they are deprived of various learning and income-earning opportunities that could improve their social status and living conditions. That is until Alexander Kedje and Priscilla Sraha of Shape Lives Team came in to design the Shape Lives Vocational Skills Training Center, a program designed to help these vulnerable population find their livelihoods by fighting discrimination and violence through education, skills education and employment opportunities.

The grant will be used to purchased 10 hand sewing machines for training these less privileged girls in the community.
