Hope for Ghana Girls Through Hairdressing Training: Providing training for girls enables them to be self reliant and to break out of the poverty trap. Where the training is linked to help with basic skills, including literacy, numeracy and family and health care, the long-tern benefits are magnified. This proposal builds on a pilot in Northern Ghana where 20 girls were brought back into education from menial and often dangerous work in the cities. They now have real hope for the future and will set up, with the aid of a start-up loan, small businesses in their villages.
