The Silent Cry Project is ANIDA’s child sponsorship program.
ANIDA believes that all children have the right to education, regardless of their socioeconomic background, gender, or country of origin. Unfortunately, nearly 57 million primary-school aged children do not attend school. When accounting for children who are not in secondary school, the number increases to over 200 million children. Often, children are barred from attending school because they simply cannot afford the school fees and the costs of textbooks and uniforms.
The Women’s Development Centre offers academic and vocational programs for women in Ghana.
The Women’s Development Centre joins an international push that recognizes the need to close the opportunity and wealth gap between men and women. We believe in shared prosperity and the fair distribution of opportunities, wealth, and leadership. Women are more likely to face poverty, a problem that has serious repercussions for their families since they are often the primary caregivers. To that end, ANIDA acts as a resource network for women seeking to upgrade their skills training.
Women were provided training by the Women’s Development Centre
Women’s Development Centre program graduates since 2004.
