Sustainable Education Ghana is a partnership between Voices of African Mothers, SEG, and Tetra Tech to create a new school that will empower the future girls of Ghana to become leaders of tomorrow. We have a vision: a safe-haven for girls, where they can receive quality food, water, shelter, education and mentorship. We call it VAM Girls Academy.

The Board of Directors of Voices of African Mothers extended an invitation to celebrate our Second Annual presentation of the: “Millennium Development Goals: 2015 Progress Awards.”
This 2015 Gala was a landmark event, because it took place towards the end of the target date set by the United Nations for achieving crucial development objectives including those that directly affect women and children. It also brought together a select group of distinguished leaders who are making their own contributions to the achievement and realization of some of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) and are being honored by VAM on the eve of the launching of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
Honorees and Guests were greeted in the United Nations Delegates Dining Room for the “Millennium Development Goals: 2015 Progress Awards” Gala.
We sincerely hope everyone enjoyed being an essential part of our 2nd historic evening as a sponsor or a guest!
Educational Conference to share facts on EBOLA and to dispel irrational fear
Since the EBOLA crisis became known, with several cases hitting the shores of the United States, reaction by the public has bordered on hysteria and extreme reactions. Noting that most of these reactions are uninformed and irrational, on December 8, 2014, Voices of African Mothers sponsored a conference to educate participants about EBOLA – how it is contracted and how it is not; what safety precautions an individual could take around persons who are infected to prevent their exposure; and how those affected as well as the general public can manage the emotional reactions triggered by the crisis.
The conference also shared ongoing research to contain the disease, as well as guidelines from reputable organizations, such as the World Health Organization.
Sincere appreciation to Mr. George Wen for donating his time to video our event!
