February 2024 in review

Inspire Action started the pilot phase of its Promotion of Vocational Oriented Training (PVOT) on February 5. The ongoing vocational training comprises wig making, braiding, manicure/pedicure and detergent making. At the time of preparing this document, a total of 13 trainees have gone through the training; that is 7 for the detergent making class and 6 trainees currently enrolled for the wig making, braiding and manicure/pedicure training. 

The team had a series of meetings with the director of the Catholic Action for Street Children (CAS) regarding the trainee transfer program for the PVOT project. With this program, some selected trainees who have successfully completed their dressmaking training at CAS will be provided with sewing equipment by Inspire Action to support their journey. The clothes that the trainees will make will be sold and the money will be used to purchase other sewing equipment for the next batch of trainees. 

Inspire Action has new projects that it wishes to undertake which includes training on how to prepare a marketable Curriculum Vitae (CV), cover letter and training in project management and IT certification. Inspire Action has noticed that young graduates face challenges in preparing a good and marketable CV and Cover letter. In this regard, it has introduced the CV and Cover letter training for all interested persons. It will encompass a series of free webinars both live and pre recorded sessions. The recorded sessions will be available on our youtube page for all to watch. The training is scheduled to kickstart in March 2024.  

Inspire Action plans to add Project Management and IT certification to the PVOT project. The goal of this is to broaden the scope of the PVOT to include the corporate community. There have been discussions between the head of mission and a renowned project management author, speaker and adviser regarding the proposed project, however the project is yet to be finalized.   

As part of preparation towards the full implementation of the Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) campaign, Inspire Action finalized all relevant documents related to the campaign. Inspire Action, and the Catholic Education Unit are finalizing discussions to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the kick-off of the campaign in all catholic schools in the Greater Accra Region, which will be launched on 08 March 2024 at the OLAS R/C Basic School in Achimota. This MoU will ensure that the first phase of the campaign starts within all Catholic Schools in the Greater Accra Region. 

The Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) campaign is hitting the road and making its way into schools across the country. With a mission to educate and empower students, the campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of Preventing Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.

Sexual exploitation and abuse are serious issues that can have devastating consequences for individuals and communities. By bringing the PSEA campaign into schools, we can reach students at a crucial stage in their development and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves and others. Through interactive workshops, presentations, and educational materials, students will learn about their rights, boundaries, and how to recognize and respond to instances of exploitation and abuse. They’ll also receive information about support services available to them if they or someone they know has been affected by these issues. By engaging with students in a safe and supportive environment, the PSEA campaign aims to break the silence surrounding sexual exploitation and abuse and empower young people to speak out and take action against these harmful behaviors.

The PSEA campaign’s journey into schools is an important step in the fight against sexual exploitation and abuse. By educating and empowering students, we can create safer communities for everyone. Together, we can work towards a future where sexual exploitation and abuse are no longer tolerated, and all individuals can live free from harm and fear.

March in figures 

  •     The launch of the PSEAH campaign is scheduled for Friday March 8 at the OLAS R/C Basic School in Achimota. The two-week campaign will comprise two sessions, with a duration of one hour per session, set from 1-3pm. We target a total of 69 public schools and 19 private schools in the Greater Accra region.
