Girls in Ghana only receive an average of four years of education. Early marriage, pregnancy, poverty, and sexual harassment are all obstacles that force girls to drop out of school before the end of junior high.
Girl Rising Ghana
Girl Rising has been partnering with Credit Suisse's Financial Education program in Ghana since 2022, delivering our program to thousands of adolescents to build socio-emotional skills and financial literacy skills to help them achieve their aspirations and a financially independent future.
Girl Rising partners with Dels Foundation and The Exploratory to delivery a locally-relevant program that:
Builds voice and agency among adolescent girls
Builds financial literacy skills that are relevant to participants’ lives and aspirations
Engages parents, caregivers, and community members to help build a strong community of allies and supporters for girls education and financial empowerment.
All of Girl Rising’s programs use stories and storytelling to help make connections, build understanding, and expand empathy. As part of our program in Ghana, we share the story of Juliana - meet her here.
