Even if you give the money to the wife, she will surrender it to the man who will misuse it. Seeing these kind of outcomes, I dont understand why NGOs still focus their attention on the North?
@Tisheyy opined that:
That quote is always true. "When you empower a man, you empowered an individual but when you empower a woman, you empower a community."
First of all, the one running an NGO should know that you don't hand over cash to beneficiaries. There is a whole report on this by the UN. Secondly, the NGO should have that report
While speaking on the impact of NGOs, Abraham Smiles Foundation, a non-profit organization which was founded by a young man named Ibrahim Muntari is dedicating its resources to cleaning Ghana and feeding the needy.
Information available to YEN.com.gh indicates that the NGO has been in existence for the past seven years with the purpose to give back to society and create opportunities for people to do good for society.
"Due to modernity and economic hardship, people are less sensitive towards their society. It is our belief that when people are involved in doing communal work together, they tend to be sensitive towards the society," Ibrahim said.
