THE AKWAABA PROJECT
The project’s aims are-

- To enable women returnees so that they can be carriers of these messages to others, they will be change agents for migration
- To enable and encourage women returnees to become economic actors in Ghana
From October 21st – October 28th 2018 training began at CUTRAC with 50 women who belonged to four groups, namely, Courageous, Superwomen, Hope for the Hopeless and Survival ladies.
These are the groups that will recruit others exhibiting the multiplier effect of their training.
