Women Deliver is a global advocacy organization bringing together voices from around the world to call for action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women. It connects, cultivates, instigates conversations, and catalyzes action for change around the globe.

As a leading, global advocate for girls’ and women’s health, rights, and well being, Women Deliver brings together diverse voices and interests to drive progress in maternal, sexual, and reproductive health and rights. It builds capacity, shares solutions, and forges partnerships, together creating coalitions, communication, and action that spark political commitment and investment in girls and women.

Its work includes: convening global and regional conferences, engaging new allies in the movement, building the next generation of advocates and developing advocacy tools and resources.

Girls Education Initiative of Ghana founded by Elizabeth Patterson founded in 2013 after several experiences in Ghana where she saw the disparity in educational access for girls. Her personal experience of acquiring a physical disability after a traumatic brain injury and research into access to education for children with disabilities in South Africa compelled her to make sure that at least 10% of students admitted had a special need.

It has been working since 2013 to provide financial and academic support so under privileged and unrepresented girls of Ghana can accomplish their goals of higher education. The Girls Education Initiative of Ghana also helps alleviate poverty by providing higher education and professional opportunities to the deserving.

Its vision is to transform the lives of young women in Ghana and improve development and poverty reduction of the country overall by offering higher education and professional opportunities to an untapped source of talent.

Gender Action was established in 2002 by Elaine Zuckerman. Throughout her career as economist at the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, Elaine was inspired by the dynamic and powerful influence of civil society organizations (CSO) in addressing development issues. Elaine noticed that not one CSO was dedicated to holding the Bank accountable on meeting its promises to promote women’s empowerment and gender equality. The impact of investments is the most meaningful measure of progress and countless investments around the world neglected gender issues and impacts. The World Bank and other IFIs have created so many gender policies, strategies, and action plans but what if they are not translated into investments? Gender Action’s name reflects the need to translate strong Bank rhetoric on gender issues through action in investments.

Gender Action is the only organization dedicated to promoting gender justice and women’s rights in all International Financial Institution (IFI) investments such as those of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund – two of the largest public sources of development financing in the world.

Its goal is to ensure that women and men equally participate in and benefit from all IFI investments. Its vision is a World Bank and other IFIs with mandatory gender policies and strategies that are implemented to increase women’s economic empowerment opportunities and eliminate their human rights violations.

Omenka Foundation, a non- governmental Organisation was founded many years ago by Ezinne Eugenia Ogoma Onwude popularly known as “Omenka”. Ezinne Eugenia is an epitome of selflessness. She is always ready to part with whatever she had to help the poor around her. She trained a good number of young girls in different vocational jobs, in order to keep them off the streets and be self- sufficient. Also as a devotional christian, she massively and passionately supports God’s work with her resources. Years on, Ezinne Eugenia could no longer cope with the day to day activities of the foundation, hereby entrusting the running of the foundation to her children.

Presently, Amb. Uche Onwude is the chairman of the foundation. For over five years he took over the affairs of the foundation, he has had a strong philanthropic presence within his local community and in different parts of the country. Like his mother, he believes that we all are brought into this world to put a smile on the face of people around us. Amb Uche Onwude never hesitates to come to the aid of the poor and needy. His love for the poor and needy in our society has earned him numerous awards including the prestigious Ambassador of Peace by United Nations. Recently, in further recognition of the the humanitarian activities of Omenka Foundation, the Foundation got accredited and short listed as a member of the International Association of African NGO (IAAN).

Its vision is to help create a poverty-free and wholesome society by meaningful contributions towards the healthcare, education, social welfare and development of individuals and communities. Its mission is to make substantial contributions towards improving healthcare, educational standards and other developmental projects in rural areas, to improve the standard of living amongst underprivileged individuals and communities.
