About Songtaba

Our History

For over 10 years, Songtaba has been empowering and supporting the women and children of the Northern Region of Ghana.

In response to staggering illiteracy, poverty, and education statistics that place the Northern Region considerably behind the rest of the country, Songtaba works to bridge the gap, working to increase the status of the Northern Region as a whole by promoting the status and rights of women.

Our programmes address inequality on a variety of fronts. We’ve provided free education to hundreds of children in the Northern Region through our Complimentary Basic Education program, ensured girls stay in school through Girls’ Clubs, trained women in a variety of livelihood programme through our FLOW programme, helped provide food security through smallholder farmer training, and assisted women accused of witchcraft in Kukuo and Gnani. Our vision is to see a society free from inequality and injustice in which women and other vulnerable groups enjoy their fundamental rights.
