Some women in the Upper East Region say they will no longer fall victims to certain human rights violations they previously suffered as a result of their ignorance. This is because they are now fully aware of these fundamental human rights after going through a sensitization program and capacity building training on Gender and Forced Migration organized by the Ark Foundation Ghana.
The Ark Foundation Ghana is an advocacy-based, women’s human rights NGO with a primary purpose of seeking the protection and promotion of human rights of women and children. The foundation also has a vision to create a society in which women and men are truly equal in all spheres and endeavors of life.
In line with these objectives, the Ark Foundation beginning Monday, organized the two-day sensitization program and capacity building training on Gender and Forced Migration in Bolgatanga for stakeholders including women, men, civil society groups and other gender-based organizations.
Marian Atta-Boahene, the Deputy Executive Director of the Ark Foundation said the training is aimed at empowering the women participants and equipping the other stakeholders with knowledge that can help them deal better with issues of women’s human rights.
Some participants of the workshop who spoke to A1 News said they had learnt a lot of things they hoped to impact on others, once the program is over.
