Israeli Ambassador reaches out to Pamela Bridgewater project

Israeli Ambassador to Ghana, H.E Sharon Bar-li has made a presentation to the Pamela Bridgewater Project to support the activities of the foundation. The amount donated, according to Mr. Yahaya Alhassan, will be used for the completion of the Kejetia-Kayayei Resettlement Centre.

The Centre, when completed will provide education, assess training needs and recommend appropriate training for the head porters. It will also serve as a platform for counseling and education on HIV awareness, teenage and unwanted pregnancy, proper healthcare, report of abuse, security, welfare among others. The donation was made in partnership with Gyandoh and Co, a law firm.

At a short ceremony to officially present the gift to the foundation, Ambassador Sharon Bar-li explained that the Israeli Embassy decided on the Pamela Bridgewater project because of the importance that should be attached to the “girl child” in general and the “kayaye“ phenomenon in particular, as part of efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goal no. 3 – promoting gender equality and empowering women: “I’m happy to join the effort of turning  the kayaye girls from vulnerable girls into empowered girls, who can make informed choices with regards o their lives and their bodies”

On his part, Project Director Yahaya Alhassan commended the embassy for the support and remarked that ‘the good work Her Excellency is doing in our Ghanaian community in areas of early childhood development education and the training of Ghanaians in Israel through MASHAV is touching several lives.

Her kind gesture during the recent Eid-ul-Adhar festival and the extension of the early childhood education programme recently to the North are just a few of the contribution her country is making. This support could not have come at a better time’.

Managing Partner of Gyandoh and Co noted that 'we are deeply proud of our association with Israel and we are hopeful that this good will further deepens our ties with the embassy'.
