RUWIN Ghana / RUWIN alleviates poverty

This Rural and Urban Wo(men) In Need (RUWIN) aims to enhance the socio-economic well being of the disadvantaged in society especially women and children and to ensure their access to job training, education, health care, credit and loans, social security, and decent living standard . It uses Susu Savings and Credit as an effective instrument of social change as the most critical need for survival is women's access to cheap working capital. Currently, there are over 600 people in both the urban and rural locations that have benefited from the RUWIN project and we wish to scale it up to increase the number of beneficiaries.
