Increasing economic opportunities and education in Northern Ghana

YOVI works on advocacy for children’s rights through youth development activities and micro-finance in Tamale, Northern Ghana.

Women in rural communities receive a micro-loan of about £50 from Yovi. They use this for buying shea nuts that they then process into shea butter. The finished product is sold in the marketplace, providing a vital and sustainable income for families living in poverty. This ensures that children can regularly attend school and have a chance at helping themselves out of the poverty trap. Women also receive essential business training from Yovi and form cooperatives which help improve the wider community
