Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood is deeply committed to advancing menstrual hygiene health in Ghana, recognizing its critical role in empowering women and girls to lead healthy, dignified lives. Our approach encompasses various strategies aimed at addressing the multifaceted challenges associated with menstrual hygiene management.Education lies at the heart of our efforts. We conduct comprehensive awareness campaigns in communities, schools, and health facilities, aiming to destigmatize menstruation and provide accurate information on hygiene practices. Through interactive workshops, informative sessions, and educational materials, we empower women and girls with the knowledge they need to manage menstruation safely and hygienically.

Access to menstrual hygiene products is another cornerstone of our initiatives. We work to ensure that vulnerable populations, including girls from low-income families and marginalized communities, have access to affordable and sustainable menstrual products such as sanitary pads, reusable menstrual cups, and cloth pads. By partnering with local suppliers and organizations, we facilitate the distribution of these products, making them readily available to those in need.Advocacy plays a crucial role in our mission. We actively engage with policymakers, stakeholders, and community leaders to advocate for improved access to sanitation facilities, including clean and private toilets equipped with proper disposal mechanisms for menstrual waste. By highlighting the importance of menstrual hygiene in promoting women's health, dignity, and overall well-being, we strive to influence policy changes and resource allocation to address this issue effectively.

Furthermore, we recognize the significance of addressing cultural norms and taboos surrounding menstruation. Through community dialogues, media campaigns, and cultural sensitivity training, we challenge harmful beliefs and attitudes that perpetuate stigma and discrimination. By fostering an environment of openness and acceptance, we create space for women and girls to discuss menstrual health openly and seek support without fear or shame.In summary, Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood is dedicated to promoting menstrual hygiene health as a fundamental human right. Through education, access to products, advocacy, and cultural sensitization, we strive to empower women and girls in Ghana to manage menstruation with dignity, ensuring their health, well-being, and full participation in society.


Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood is deeply committed to raising awareness, promoting early detection, providing support, and advocating for improved access to healthcare services in the fight against breast cancer in Ghana. Our comprehensive approach addresses the various aspects of breast cancer prevention, treatment, and support for individuals and families affected by the disease.

Education is a cornerstone of our breast cancer initiatives. We conduct extensive community outreach programs, workshops, and awareness campaigns to educate women and men about the importance of breast health, early detection methods, and the significance of regular screening. By dispelling myths and misconceptions surrounding breast cancer and promoting self-examination and clinical breast examinations, we empower individuals to take proactive steps in safeguarding their health.

Access to screening and diagnostic services is crucial in detecting breast cancer at an early, treatable stage. Through partnerships with healthcare facilities and organizations, we facilitate the provision of mammograms, ultrasounds, and other diagnostic tests, particularly in underserved communities where access to healthcare services may be limited. Additionally, we advocate for policies that promote the integration of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services into primary healthcare systems, ensuring that all individuals, regardless of their socio-economic status, have access to timely and quality care.

Support for individuals diagnosed with breast cancer and their families is a priority for us. We offer psychosocial support, counseling services, and peer-to-peer support groups to help individuals cope with the emotional and practical challenges associated with a breast cancer diagnosis. By creating a supportive network of survivors, caregivers, and healthcare professionals, we foster a sense of community and empowerment, enabling individuals to navigate their cancer journey with resilience and hope.

Advocacy plays a vital role in our efforts to address breast cancer in Ghana. We work tirelessly to raise awareness among policymakers, stakeholders, and the general public about the importance of prioritizing breast cancer prevention, treatment, and research. By advocating for increased funding for breast cancer programs, improved access to healthcare services, and the implementation of evidence-based policies, we strive to reduce the burden of breast cancer and improve outcomes for affected individuals.

In summary, Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood is dedicated to combating breast cancer in Ghana through education, access to screening and diagnostic services, support for individuals and families, and advocacy for policy change. By empowering individuals with knowledge, resources, and support, we aim to reduce the incidence of breast cancer, improve survival rates, and enhance the quality of life for those affected by the disease.
