Loozeele Initiative empowers, trains and supports young Kayayei as well as girls in the northern part of Ghana with entrepreneurship skills and skills training in basketry, fabric weaving, baking, and shea butter making. Our programmes comprise of an entrepreneurship module, an empowerment module and a reproductive health module. Loozeele empowers these girls, mitigating teenage pregnancy and the negative impact it causes. Overall, Loozeele improves the lives of the youth and reduces the rate of urban migration in Ghana. Our main aim is to help the youth identify opportunities that will help them gain a source of income in the north and also plan for a better future.

SDG Outcomes



Hybrid Activities 

The Loozeele Initiative is a social enterprise that supports girls and women to create a source of income through entrepreneurship. It creates an impact by empowering girls to create a livelihood for themselves and plan a better life. Loozeele makes profit from the sale of their products (20% of the sale of every product goes towards sustaining and supporting more girls).
These women do not only gain employment, but they also make profit from the products they craft. Some of the products they make include shea butter, smock fabrics, woven bags and sandals. The girls and women use technology to market the products they make and use social media to sell products to their customers and communicate with them. It is a great platform for them to showcase their products to the world.


Validated the process of partnering with an International Development Agency as a key partner to achieve Loozeele mandate on a large scale.
