Shalom House

The Women’s Empowerment Project’s Shalom House is a development project designed to provide a refuge for sex workers in Ghana.

The project will target girls between the ages of 13-23 who are currently engaged in the trade. The project will offer counseling, vocational training and hope to beneficiaries who are looking for a way out of prostitution and an opportunity to acquire new skills.

Support programmes are expected to last nine months.

Micro-finance

The aim of the micro-loan is to provide economic empowerment to African women with school age children.

Our small-scale interest free loans create a culture of independence and enable beneficiaries to support their families.  Beneficiaries undergo a selection process and receive business skills training in areas such as:

  • identifying a profitable business
  • identifying your competition and your unique selling point
  • calculating profit
  • budgeting
  • growing the business
  • business planning
