Empowering Women with Scriptures

Empowering Women with Scriptures

The project seeks to organise counseling workshops for 1,000 women who continue to face various forms of discrimination and abuses in most parts of Ghana through thematic scriptural materials in order to bring comfort and hope to their dire situations.
The 2005 Ghana Country Report reveals that, Ghana is amongst the countries that records high levels of gender based violence including physical, psychological, economic and sexual abuse. Records available to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana police service indicated that, between the period of 1999 to May 2010, 109 784 cases of domestic violence were reported of which a greater portion was perpetuated against women.
