Visit to White Ribbon Ghana

Our Founder and President, Chris Green OBE is currently in Ghana, meeting with White Ribbon Ghana representatives. Excellent, inspiring yet under funded work is being done by these people:

They are providing outreach into rural areas of the Volta region, which have been highlighted as needing work on violence prevention. Campaign activities have included a district White Ribbon sponsored football tournament with awareness raising PA announcements, speeches and white ribbon badges presented, as well as many individual sign ups and contacts taken for the Men's Development Group. Banners and posters will be displayed in the future to keep the momentum going.

Another visit involved the community inviting the campaign to make presentations, have a question and answer session with village elders, and have most of the village take the pledge and commit as a community.

The campaign is also partnering with faith groups to take the message of men challenging and speaking out about violence against women and girls.
