Working to End Violence Against Women and Children

My friends, Sulaiman Nurridin and Ulester Douglas are still going strong and doing this very important work to end violence against womena and children. Click below and see what Men Stopping Violence, a national training organization, based in Atlanta is doing to address this problem.

Q. What are you doing to challenge the pervasive violence against women and children in society?

An Update on Ghana

Ghana has always had a special place in my heart ever since I spent six months there in 1996. It was a wonderful experience and one I treasure to this day. I hooked up with women's Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO's) while working with the United States Embassy and Consulate doing an internship. I met many wonderful people and I have always wanted to return. But that dream has not yet manifested.

I am associated with the village of Gomoa Achiase. If you are ever there here are the directions:

go through the Accra/Winnaba road. At the Winneba Round a bout take a right and go straight until you get to Agona Swedru. There you will turn let at the Chapel Squire and go straight. You are now on the road to Gomoa Achiase which is three miles away. This road is the old Cape Coast Road.
