Together we can break the cycle

In Ghana (West Africa) the life of an uneducated and unskilled woman is perforated with danger and deceit. The never-ending cycle of abuse and poverty continues to be their constant companion.

International Needs NZ and International Needs Ghana have partnered up to provide an avenue for these women to escape a short and often violent life on the streets.

The Centre for Empowerment and Enterprise Development (CEED), formerly known as International Needs Vocational Training Centre (INVTC) is a community development, technical/vocational and
entrepreneurial training institute.

The Centre for Empowerment and Enterprise Development facility is located in a clean, serene and congenial environment. The Centre promotes a peaceful, friendly and focused learning atmosphere for all students. It also provides the vital infrastructure, follow up, equipment, motivation, qualified and a dedicated staff that give quality vocational and entrepreneurial training to students as they prepare for their chosen fields.

All participants graduate with skills and a belief in themselves that will enable them to positively contribute to the development and growth of the community they are a part of.
Significantly, the Centre has contributed to the moral, economic, physical and social development of young women in society and the nation at arge. Most of these trained women are currently independent and self-employed in their own income generating ventures.

International Needs New Zealand in partnership with International Needs Ghana are both passionate about transforming lives and changing communities. Can we ask you to seriously consider partnering with us and making a significant difference in the lives of the women as they currently train at CEED and the families and communities that they are a part of?
