Requested by

Redeem Africa Leadership Foundation (RALFo)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Redeem Africa Leadership Foundation (RALFo) is a registered non governmental organization focusing on developing human resources by creating an environment of effective leadership role into African culture. We assess cultural and normative practices by assessing their impact on society and assisting in community based project that help to reduce poverty.

We also provide on-going vocational training for 140 women in three vocational schools in the central region. That’s why RALFo is seeking funds to buy sewing machines for young women who will be able to train more women in their communities thus reducing reduce poverty and enhancing self reliance and women’s empowerment.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our goal is to purchase sewing machines to teach 140 women in three vocational schools in the central region. It is our hope they can improve their knowledge in sewing and become professionals. This in turn will help their communities by increasing economic activity in the area.

This will help them to be more independent and to have the courage to fight against poverty. These sewing machines will be a motivation for other women, notably the younger women, who may also use sewing as a profession rather than resorting to more desperate measures. It will give them a chance to plan a future, rather than worry about having suficient resources to survive.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Other people can partner us by sponsoring us, but notably by giving us
- funds,
- sewing machines and other sewing materials and encouragement,

Please detail the resources that you need.

We need US$14,000 as cost of 140 sewing machines and transportation. Unit price as at today, 7th July,2012 in Ghana is US$97.00.
