One year ago, this young woman was going to be exchanged with another woman to be brides for their brothers. Thanks to the work of the Foundation Beyond Belief's Humanist Action: Ghana (HA: Ghana) and our partners, the father was convinced that letting her attend school was better for her and the family. Today she is in public school, and the father is continuing to encourage education in his family and community.
More information about the HA: Ghana can be found on our website including details about the current team, the current project, how you can support the HA: Ghana, or even how to sponsor a volunteer.
