Introducing myself and my journal: Bringing Them On Board

About Me:
I am a professional teacher with the Ghana Education Service. Became a founding director of Freedom International (FI) in 1998. Freedom International is a human rights and peace organization which prevents, manages, resolves and transforms conflict. As women's coordinator, my focus is on women and the youth. Between 2003 and 2006, I was heavily involved in organizing an HIV/AIDS project for 18 communities in the Tapa Traditional Area of the Biakoye District with funding from the Ghana AIDS Commission.

My Passions:
Bringing together people with diverse opinions

My Challenges:
How to seek funding to assist brilliant female pupils and students who are being forced by parents into premature marriage at the expense of their education.

My Vision for the Future:
To intervene on behalf of young school girls whose parents force them into early marriages

My Areas of Expertise:
Education and human rights defence

Welcome!

Welcome to PulseWire!

I'm sure you'll enjoy being a part of the community here. Your work in Ghana sounds very important, and I am sure you have wisdom to share after your years of work in HIV/AIDS and now as you're working with women and youth.

I know that funding is always a challenge, so be sure to keep an eye on the Resource Exchange for opportunities, and also look at this great Fundraising Toolkit that the World Pulse staff has compiled: http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/solutions/41528

Take care!
Best wishes,
Scott
