The Story

By the end of 2010, 250,000 girls in the Northern Regions of Ghana were sexually abused. If present trends continue, this figure is projected to double by 2030. Lack of education often plays a significant role coupled with gender inequality, low value accorded to girls, and is exacerbated by poverty, insecurity and conflict. This results in life-threatening health consequences, denies girls their rights to sexual autonomy, integrity, safety and puts more girls at risk of sexual, physical and psychological violence. Awareness raising and education is key to ending sexual violence against men and women.

CLIMB’s leader in Ghana, Abass Hamza, works tirelessly through his organization HACEP to empower survivors and advocate, inspire, involve and celebrate social change. Abass has been selected to attend the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Malta this November. He has been invited to attend this event as an Associate Fellow and has been asked to lead discussions in forums concerning violence and discrimination against women. He will join other young people in the Commonwealth to chart a collective efforts towards ending Sexual Abuse by harnessing the potential of partner organization Climb Against Sexual Abuse (CLIMB). Abass wants to break the silence and create awareness in his society and across the Commonwealth of Nations. Unfortunately, his airfare to this event has not been funded. This project will raise funds to support the travel of Abass to the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Malta.
