Speak Up For a Change Ghana Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) aimed at amplifying the voices of Ghanaian girls and children, has been launched officially at Aflao in the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta Region.

The event, which drew together influential people, community leaders, girl child advocates, and students marked a significant step in addressing critical issues young girls and children face in the country.

The founder of Speak Up for a Change Ghana Foundation, Adzowavi Sakponou Adenka, noted the urgent need to address matters confronting girls and children in Ghana. ”I founded Speak Up For a Change Foundation believing that every girl child in Ghana deserves a chance to thrive. Through this charity, we aim to provide a platform to empower them to speak out and uphold their rights,” she noted.

Torgbui Henyo Aglasu III, a prominent chief of Aflao based in the UK and the sponsor of the launch emphasized the importance of the initiative in championing the rights and well-being of the girl child and children in Ghana.
