Our Projects

Our Project is registered with Girl Up .Brain Girl Academy Award is a new initiative by Miss Rosina Akourkor Teye, Director of Dolly Foundation. The project is about identifying girls who has excelled in their examination and award them with a citation and certain basic items to encourage them to do their best. These girls are going to be selected from their upper primary educational level. The aim is to identify 20 girls from 10 public schools who has pass well in their third term promotional examination, to congratulate them of their extraordinary academic performance. In My communities most girls drop out of school after completing the upper primary, some of these girls are forced to early marriage or a sent to become domestic maid in the big cities.

The project seeks to let parent know that when girl are given the right motivation they can also excel in their academic performance. The 20 girls during their vacation will attend extra class which will be organized by the Organization through the help of volunteers who are student in the training college within our communities. These students have agreed to voluntarily prepare these girls to enter Junior High School. The vacation classes will last for one month; there will also be other developmental programs to empower these girls on their reproductive rights and career choice.

The subject to be taught will be Mathematics, English and Science. These girls will get the opportunity to be interview on the local radio to express their gratitude to the organizer, donor and parent; the most important of the interview is to educate their peer how they were able to excel in their academic work.

Items to be given to the girls:

  • Certificate of recognition

What do people do?

The International Day of the Girl Child gives people and organizations the opportunity to raise public awareness of the different types of discrimination and abuse that many girls around the world suffer from. On this day, many community and political leaders talk to the public about the importance of girls’ right to equal education and their fundamental freedoms.

Brain girl Award

In FEW days, Dolly Foundation will celebrate UN International Girl Day – 11th October

In a country like Ghana ,where underprivileged girls are still most excluded from quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is good to inroads to ensure that the girl child from disadvantaged communities also has an opportunity to sit at the table in traditionally privileged and male dominated STEM careers.

My personal vision is to help ensure “that every girl has equal opportunity to be a constructive citizen in a society that is safe, nurturing and where one’s sex, gender and race are no longer determining factors for salary scales, economic participation and personal agency.”

Brain girl Award -Dolly Foundation is seeking individuals who can support us with exercise books, math set , pens and used shoes. We have identify few young girls of exceptional academic excellence and want to give me such basic needs. They are two girls from 10 schools in Assin Fosu.We have only few days to the program.
