Who We Are

The Samira Empowerment & Humanitarian Projects (SEHP) is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving the lives of women, children and youth in under-served communities across Ghana. We believe in the promise of the potential of all Ghanaians, and are dedicated to making sure that no one is left behind in actualizing their potential. It is for this reason that the team at SEHP is focused on developing and implementing culturally-competent social interventions across health, education and the economic empowerment of particularly women.

An equitable world in which every Ghanaian child, woman and youth is healthy, educated and has equal access to opportunities to realize their fullest potential.

The Samira Empowerment & Humanitarian Projects (SEHP) mission is threefold:

1. To provide relevant and vital health interventions to secure a healthy future

2. To enhance literacy, improve learning outcomes, and grow a generation of critical thinkers who can compete globally

3. To facilitate self-sufficiency in women to help break the cycle of poverty

We exist to serve the needs of the most vulnerable in ways that address the root of their challenges, while affording them personal dignity

We remain true to our cause and cultivate and maintain honest relationships with all stakeholders

We welcome diverse perspectives, talents and work cooperatively to achieve set objectives
