Our Story

The GirlFund Organization is committed to empowering the next generation of female business leaders in Ghana. We believe that when women are empowered with the right knowledge, tools, and resources they are able to build resilient businesses.

Currently, the Organization has initiated a 5-year program (2019-2025) to empower students and graduates to kickstart their MSMEs, especially for young women, to reduce the rate of graduate unemployment in Ghana.
