Title: S2 EP17 | Empowering Girls and Women in Ghana - Changing the Culture and Futures of Women with Gifty Volimkarime

Gifty Volimkarime works for Crossroads International and is a country manager for Ghana. Together they are making lasting changes for girls and women. They work with local partners who are at the grassroots level and can influence girls and women at an individual level.

- reducing gender-based violence
- protecting and dignifying elder women in the community
