In many rural areas of Ghana, girls and young women face daunting odds. In education and health, the services are poorly designed, funded and distributed. In addition, the gender gap continues to present barriers for girls and overcoming the cycle of poverty in our communities can be next to impossible.
To combat these problems, GHEI has launched a special initiative to celebrate, promote and build GHEI's "focus on girls" programming - HERS (Health and Educational Resources for Success)! With the launch of HERS, GHEI is stepping forward to be a leader in girls and women's empowerment worldwide!
