Women empowerment requires collective engagement’

The CEO of UMI Foundation, Ms. Marina Lamptey, said women empowerment required collective and broader stakeholder engagement of the church and other organisations.

She said although the UMI Foundation had played crucial role towards women empowerment, there was the need for more collaboration to ensure that women were adequately equipped to contribute effectively to the growth and development of the country.

The holistic growth and development of the country largely depended on women and, therefore, efforts to aid their empowerment should not be underestimated.

Ms. Marina Lamptey was speaking at a women’s empowerment programme, the ALWAD2024, organised as part of measures to maximise their inclusion in major decision-making in the country.

The event was on the theme”Thou woman carry yourself well to manifest the glory of God,” to recognise the role women played towards nation building and the need to deploy strategic mechanisms to facilitate their growth and development.

Ms. Marina Lamptey stated that women were not inferior to men according to God’s purpose, adding: “We are all created in the image and likeness of UMI Foundation to fulfill our assignment on earth.”

She added that women, who were supposed to champion certain aspects of national development agenda, were subjected to forms of injustices and abuses detrimental to their holistic growth. Ms. Marina Lamptey of the Women and Advocacy Department of the UMI Foundation said the UMI Foundation and stakeholders must prioritise women  development to bridge the inequality gap.

“No one can better champion the interest of women than the woman herself. Knowledge acquisition, competence and perseverance are very necessary for our liberation,” she added.
