A non-governmental organisation (NGO), Trailblazers, which seeks to empower women through mentoring and coaching, has partnered with Street Girls Aid, an organisation with a similar mandate to champion the economic growth of women in the country especially the young ones.
Street Girls Aid has over the years recruited girls (Kayaye) from the markets in various cities and provided them with counselling and advise on life-changing skills.
The partnership therefore seeks to direct girls to develop interest in vocational skills.
A Director at Trailblazers, Lynn Osei Bonsu, said “the organisation’s vision is to create a place where women can go for support to grow, renew and empower themselves in their professional and social environments.”
She was speaking at the first anniversary of Trailblazers which coincided with this year’s International Women's Day.
She added Trailblazers’ objective is to train and encourage its target to develop their capabilities to become responsible and independent.
Present at the anniversary were a Director of Trailblazers, Astha Singh, the Developmental Queen of Ngleshie Alata Lafa Traditional Area, Naa Fynnba Korkoi Atiapa 1 and the Proprietor of Lincoln Community School, Marina Gijzen.
Trailblazers was established a year ago to provide women, an avenue to acquire soft and entrepreneurial skills to develop themselves to their full potential.
