The Subayo foundation is a non-governmental organization with aim to empower women and girls from Zambia and Ghana through business, education and training, literacy programs and health education.
In Ghana, Subayo Foundation elevates women and girls’ standards in regions such as Accra, Volta, Ashanti, Greater and mid-Accra. From many and diverse programs developed, the ‘’Mobile banking System’’ and the soccer team ‘’The Subayo Golden Eagles’’ got attention. With the Mobile banking system, women don’t have to travel to the bank, however a bank official travels to them to collect the money. The girls’ soccer team is doing so good that it got a donation of a bus recently.
In Zambia, the aim is still the same as in Ghana. The Organization works in western region of Zambia to empower women and girls through schools, health clinics, orphanages, farming, jewelry making…
The great work realized by the Organization in Zambia, such as helping schools, educating people about HIV/AIDS and building teachers’ houses at Namitone Primary School is seen as ‘’A way of supplementing government’s efforts of improving the education sector in the country’’ said the founder. All these improvements brought Inonge Wina, Vice President of the Republic of Zambia and member of Lozi People in Advisory Board.
