A Ban Against Neglect
ABAN operates a 2-year holistic residency program in Ghana, Africa, that transitions young mothers out of poverty and off the streets of the capital, Accra. After a series of interviews, ABAN selects 20 apprentices aged 17-22 who show a strong desire to work hard to change their situation. The coursework focuses not only on education and vocational skills but also on health and well-being.
