The communities served by the HA: Ghana program are at high-risk for food insecurity and other health and human rights challenges. Supporting emergency needs for students connected with our current projects is one facet of our humanist response to COVID-19.
Humanist Action: Ghana (HA: Ghana) is a Ghanaian women's rights and poverty alleviation program guided by secular humanist principles under Foundation Beyond Belief. The program runs livelihood training programs in the Northern and Central regions of Ghana and partners with local grassroots nonprofits that do similar work.
The goal of Humanist Action: Ghana is to:
HA: Ghana focuses on protecting human rights by championing the skills necessary for Ghanaians in impoverished communities to meet their basic needs. HA: Ghana does this by collaborating with local organizations and individuals to empower members of the local community to build a life of self-sustainability and dignity. Each vocational or agricultural training project coordinated by HA: Ghana is specifically tailored to the needs and desires identified by the communities themselves. After each training, trainees are provided with the tools and equipment needed to start a viable business in their field.
