These are just a couple of images of some of the inspiring women we met recently – whilst traveling around Ghana, West Africa, on assignment for NGO, Concern Universal –  who are working on projects that are enabling them to raise themselves and their families above the poverty level.

Concern Universal is a charity that brings opportunity to families in Africa, Latin-America and Asia to end the poverty they live in. Poverty is not just about being poor. It is being denied choice and opportunity – whether it’s a lack of food, water, healthcare, education or feeling powerless to make changes.’ CU
