Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the Economic Leadership Development has vowed to work with other initiatives to hear the voices of the vulnerable, especially women and children.

The two committed when the Chairman of the Economic Leadership Development and African Leadership Organization, Dr Terrance Drew, called on the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Madam Lariba Zuweira Abudu in Accra.

The Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD) is an organisation that strives to bring authentic and enduring empowerment to women at various levels, circumstances, cultures and tribes; whilst re-defining the theory and practice of inclusive leadership and education for the youth and the multiple societies where we operate.

Dr Terrance lauded the Minister for her contribution to women’s leadership development and social protection towards vulnerable groupings in the country.

On her part, Madam Lariba expressed gratitude to the organisation for recognising the Ministry’s role in alleviating the plight of the poor and vulnerable in the country.

She added that there was a need for women to be mentored by women in leadership roles.’ That, according to her, would help solve issues like ‘kayayie’ (head potters) in the country.

She pledged the Ministry’s willingness to work with the organisation to help solve emerging issues on gender.

“We need to get a lot of women on board to help the situation; otherwise, our voices cannot be heard,” she emphasised
