The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Mrs. Cynthia Morrison has visited the Sharecare Rehab Centre at Osu Anorhor.
After interacting with the mothers and children and staff, she promised to facilitate a bigger accommodation for the continued existence of the Centre.
The Centre Manager, Mrs. Rebecca Sai had earlier told the Minister that it was impossible to continue paying commercial rent for the Centre, and that the space was too small for the number of children attending the Centre.
The GFD President, Madam Mawunyo Yakor-Dagba was in attendance during the visit.
The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection held a party for mothers of children with disabilities in celebration of Mothers’ Day and in appreciation of their hard work. Ten Sharecare mothers were invited to the function.
Together we can beat lupus.
Happy World Lupus Day!
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has presented GH¢2 million to 1,000 women entrepreneurs with disability, under the Presidential Empowerment for Women Entrepreneurs with Disability.
At a brief ceremony at Jubilee House, on Tuesday, 30th April, 2019, President Akufo-Addo said the programme is to help improve the livelihoods of the disabled, and also help realise goals no. 5, 8, and 10 of the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
“Having set a fund target of some GH¢4 million, over the next two years, to support disabled women in business, the Ministry of Business Development has so far raised GH¢2 million of the amount. The one thousand beneficiaries will not be required to pay any interest on the amounts they are going to receive,” the President said.
“They will only pay back 50% of the principal advanced to them. This gesture is part of my government’s support to our disabled women entrepreneurs, to help them scale up their businesses, and employ more people. We anticipate that, with the monies being given to them today, they will and should be able to employ, at least, two persons.”
