Voices of African Mothers (VAM) a non-governmental organization founded by Nana Fosu Randall and her late husband Prof. John L. Randall has established Micro Finance for the inhabitants especially women of Kwadaso Constituency in the Ashanti Region as part of its women empowerment program this year.
Speaking at the event, Nana Fosu Randall explained that Voices of African Mothers (VAM) is making such an initiative to support women in the constituency which later extends to all part of the Ghana.
At the gesture were the board members of VAM, James R. Jubilee a retired political activist of city of Mount Vernon, NY, Connie Fowler the international secretary of Voices of African Moters, and Honorable Delores Scott Brathwaite who is also a judge in the town of Greenburgh one of the largest municipalities in the county of Westchester, NY United State to support the project.
Honoring the event was the aspiring NPP MP for Kwadaso Constituency Dr. S.K Nuamah who joined Nana Fosu Randall to launch the Program.
Describing the event, Dr. S.K Nuamah showed a lot of gratitude to the founder and the Board of Directors of VAM and pledged he will do all his best to support such a wonderful initiative for the benefit of his people.
He therefore urged his people particularly all women who will benefit either in the form of loan or whatever to make good use of it in other to improve their lives.
“Voices of African Mothers is doing this as part of its outreach program to empower women in Africa. We chose this constituency because Dr. S.K Nuamah can be entrusted to help us grow the micro finance. I am pleading with our dear mothers who will be given various loans not to use them on funeral clothes and things that will not be necessary for their family”. Nana Fosu Randall Lamented.
It is our dream to create more financial institutions to bridge the gap between women and men in the society that has lasted for centuries.
