ExGlo Foundation, a non-governmental organization in Ghana, recently undertook two initiatives to support livelihoods. Beneficiaries of the charity project include Tamale Girls Senior High School in the Northern Region and the Srafa community in the Central Region. 

This year, Exoglo Foundation selected these two regions as beneficiaries for its activities. The objective was to engage these beneficiaries in skill development training and offer educational assistance to the Srafa D/A Basic school.

On November 12, 2022, the ExGlo foundation visited the Tamale Girls Senior High School to train the students in liquid soap and bead making. This was to equip them with entrepreneurship skills to be financially independent after school.

They donated marker boards, sanitary pads, towels, soaps, African print cloths (to cover themselves with it in the washroom when changing), panties and a cupboard for storing menstrual hygiene items. ExGlo Foundation also repaired the spoilt hand wash basin and fixed the marker boards.

The ExGlo foundation visited the people of Srafa in the Central region on November 18, 2022, and discovered that women are engaged in farming as their only source of income. Since farming is a seasonal occupation, these women become financially handicapped when it is not yet the farming season. 

As part of their mission as a Foundation, they decided to equip these girls and women with various skills that can help them attain some level of financial freedom.

The aim was to engage them in making shampoo, liquid soap and pastries, which was very successful. The women were equipped with these skills to help them generate extra income to support themselves and their families.
