Each year, Global Fund for Children gives out the Maya Ajmera Sustainability Award. Name after founder Maya Ajmera, the award is granted to partners who exemplify exceptional success and commitment to long-term change.
This award, which has been given to 167 community-based organizations since 2005, provides an investment in the winners’ long-term stability at a crucial stage in their development. Achievers Ghana is a winner of this year’s award.
The winners can use the awarded funds to promote their sustainability – whether that means establishing a reserve fund, investing in human resources, or implementing creative revenues generation activities.
With this ward, Achievers Ghana plans to support administrative, operational, and staff capacity development costs. Specifically, the funds will go towards the cost of keeping the office open, providing additional staff development to help staff grow professionally, and covering travel expenses to help staff to reach more girls.
“The changes we have been able to achieve for the past 11 years have been due to little by little support from people and organizations across the world. With these supports and donations, we have been able to reach over 10,000 girls across the country through various programs and outreaches. This award gives us a chance to make a further impact in the lives of girls in communities such as mine, especially coming back from the recent pandemic” said Amadu Mohammed, the Director, and Co-founder of Achievers Ghana.
